Zaheer has been leading the DD side from Indian Premier League (IPL) 2016. He recently suffered a hamstring injury which kept him out of the side for a few matches and probably one of the reasons for DD’s early exit from the tournament. DD would not be able to qualify for the IPL 2017 playoffs by any permutation or combination applied.
DD have had a forgettable IPL 2016 whereas they missed out of IPL 2016 playoffs by a whisker. DD suffered a humiliating loss at the hands of Mumbai Indians as they bundled out for their lowest score of 66, in an attempt to chase down a mammoth score of 213 and that too at their own home ground, Feroz Shah Kotla.
Despite DD’s poor performance, Zaheer has proved to be one of the finest bowlers in the league being a 38-year-old medium-fast bowler. Zaheer has still perfected the art of bowling knuckleball and keeping the batsman guessing. Though, speculations are that he might retire from all forms of cricket in an attempt to settle down.
