Zaheer Khan, the spearhead of Mumbai Indians‘ pace attack has been ruled out of the rest of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 due to shoulder injury. The experienced seamer had bowled some fine spells in IPL 7. It is a big blow for Mumbai setup, as they need his experience to do well in IPL 7. To make it worse for them, they are struggling in IPL 2014, as they have lost five of their six games in the tournament. Mumbai will have to find a replacement for him now.


Zaheer has scalped five wickets in the six matches and he left the field after bowling just three balls in his last over against Kings XI Punjab in the previous game, which Mumbai won to snap their dismal five-match losing streak.


In fact, it is also a major blow for Zaheer, as he isn’t getting any younger and he had just made a comeback into the Indian side last year after being in the wilderness for long. One can only hope that he will comeback to full fitness and again play in IPL.
