The prime motive of any form of bowling is not only to provoke and entertain but also to inspire. In that case, it is got to be India’s greatest pacer Zaheer Khan without any second thought.

The iconic bowler is someone who doesn’t settle for the run-of-the-mill either as he transformed his bowling into art because of the variations that he brings to his bowling and because of the proficiency he will certainly be remembered as one of the finest bowlers.

It is no wonder that India’s Zaheer Khan ruffles the left-handers and right-handers’ feathers by swinging the ball in both ways for which he has been able to reach great altitudes with his uniqueness. For a bowler, to knock down the batsman one has to target the weakness, hit the right areas so as to get the better of the other and for Zaheer Khan that is too mainstream.

The cricket fraternity has witnessed legendary left-handers face a troublesome experience when they face the mighty Zaheer Khan. Amongst the most number of dismissals in Zaheer Khan’s kitty, Graeme Smith comes first.

It’s been a fascinating tale of the dominance of sheer one-sided tussle between the duo.  Zaheer always targets Graeme Smith’s weakness and make of him quite well for which he has been able to outdo Smith 13 times in his 25 face-offs.
