Johannesburg: India's left-arm paceman Zaheer Khan ripped the heart out of New Zealand's World Cup semi-final push with a devastating Super Six performance at Centurion on Friday.Zaheer equalled his One-day best of 4 for 42 against Zimbabwe at Sharjah two years ago on his way to surpassing the 100-wicket mark in the Limited Overs game.He struck with his second delivery when Craig McMillan flicked straight to Harbhajan Singh at square-leg.

Next ball, he trapped new man Nathan Astle leg-before to make it 0-2.Zaheer returned for his second spell to claim his 100th One-day wicket when he clean bowled Brendon McCullum."I had been disappointed with my form so far in the tournament," said Zaheer. Copyright AFP 2001
