Zaheer Khan: I am getting better with age

Veteran Indian pacer Zaheer Khan said he was getting better with age and that he was getting fitter with more cricket being played, after bundling out New Zealand for 105 in the second innings.

Zaheer exuded confidence that India still have a chance to win the Test match and go 1-0 up in the two-Test series.

“It’s good that we have seen off the new ball today and tomorrow hopefully will be a better day for us. The pitch is looking good and what got to them was pressure and disciplined bowling by our bowlers. I don’t think the pitch has changed a great deal and it is looking better if at all.

“The momentum is with us and we will look to capitalise on that. We have got a good start today and it’s important to start well tomorrow [Sunday] morning,” he said.

The veteran pacer explained that with the Kookaburra ball, it’s important to get the early breakthroughs and with the new ball, there is always help in the offing.

“Everyone chipped in with wickets. It was crucial because when you have to get the opposition out for low scores, then everyone has to chip in. The last time this happened was in Trinidad in 2002, when all the bowlers took three wickets each,” he said, adding that India went on to win that match in the West Indies, and they are in a similar position of strength here.
