I expected a lot more from him. I don’t know what it is, maybe the lengths he bowls. But something is not right. And something is not working," Hadlee said, as reported by the <em>Hindustan Times</em>.<br /> <br /> Hadlee also praised out-of-favour pacer <a href="/tags/Zaheer-Khan/post" target="_blank">Zaheer Khan</a> and hoped to see him play for India again.<br /> <br /> "He’s a fine bowler. Zaheer can change the pace so subtly. He can swing the ball both ways. He had some real aggression about him.<br /> <br /> "He gets wickets out of nowhere really. Suddenly something happens, and he picks up a wicket. I do hope that he beats his fitness issues and makes a comeback.<br /> <br /> "He’s a quality bowler. And India could really use him on overseas trips," he added.
