New Delhi: Gearing up for the second phase of his rehabilitation, Zaheer Khan is hopeful of making a comeback through the Champions League Twenty20 (CLT20) in September before the home series against West Indies.
“I am looking forward to playing in the CLT20, which is beginning next month. That’s a good goal to have, but I have to first see how my bowling rehab goes,” Zaheer said.
Zaheer had strained his left latissmus dorsi muscle during IPL this year and because of that he missed the tour of England.
“I am starting my second phase of rehab this week, which is the bowling phase.
“Thereafter, I will see how things unfold and hopefully in another five weeks or so, I will look to bowl 100 per cent,” the pacer said.
Moving on to the ongoing India-England series, Zaheer is happy with the way the visitors’ pace battery has performed so far, despite the defeat in Southampton.
