India vs South Africa series: BCCI to felicitate Zaheer Khan at Wankhede during 5th ODI

New Delhi: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will felicitate speedster Zaheer Khan at the Wankhede Stadium during the fifth and final ODI between India and South Africa, scheduled to take place on October 25.

Zaheer, who recently announced retirement from international cricket, will be honoured for his achievements to Indian cricket.

Always regarded as one of India's greatest ever pace bowlers, Zaheer took the retirement call as he felt that he was not fit enough to deal with the rigours of the modern game.

Zaheer Khan made his ODI debut on October 3, 2000 vs Kenya at Nairobi and scalped 282 wickets in 200 ODIs.

The 37-year-old also picked 311 wickets in 92 Tests to become India's fourth highest wicket-taker overall.
