New Delhi: Former India pacer Zaheer Khan on Thursday offered high praise for fellow left-armer Ashish Nehra.
The Delhi bowler has been a revelation ever since his return to India's T20I squad.
“It is certainly very difficult to make a comeback at 36. I retired at that age, so I know how it is,” Zaheer was quoted as saying by the TOI.
Zaheer even joked that the 36-year-old was the new youngster on the block in the current Indian side.
“I think we have a new youngster on the block in Nehra now. He is doing pretty well,” he further added.
Nehra's ability to provide early breakthroughs and bowl well during slog overs has helped ease MS Dhoni's problems in the bowling department.
