Out-of-form Zaheer finds support from Dhoni

Colombo: Out of form veteran Indian pacer Zaheer Khan has found a supporter in skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni and termed him as the “"Sachin Tendulkar of Indian bowling" .

"It is easier to go after a bowler when is not doing well. For me, Zaheer is the Sachin Tendulkar of the Indian bowling attack. He has been the leader of the bowling unit for a number of years now," said Dhoni.

"He might not have been so effective in the last few matches but in those situations others need to step up. I believe it is a matter of time for him to get back to form," he added.

Talking about whether India will try and experiment with the team especially after they have booked a Super Eights spot, Dhoni sounded affirmative and indicated few changes in the team against their next match against England.

"We are looking to make a few changes in the side. Obviously, we only name the playing XI on the day of the match. We ideally want most of our 15 members to get some game time in the middle before we get on with the Super Eights," he said.
