Bangalore: Impressed with a fit-again Zaheer Khan's magnificent bowling show against Chennai Super Kings, Royal Challengers Bangalore coach Ray Jennings is hopeful that the veteran pacer will play a key role if the team sneaks into the playoffs.
"The tough thing for me was to try get Zak match fit. Hopefully he hasn't started off too late and he is going to help us in semi-finals and finals," said Jennings after a 24-run win over Chennai Super Kings in which Zaheer took four wickets in two overs on Saturday night.
"We all know that when he is match fit he has amazing ability to handle the heat and the pressure in key moments. He even surprised me of his catch at the end. He was fired up," he told reporters here.
