Team manager Ratnakar Shetty said the bowler had strained his muscle in the right leg and would not be able to play in the match. "A detailed report on his condition will be available later in the day. At the moment we are assessing his condition," he said.
After bowling just one over on Wednesday in Pakistan's first innings on the fourth day, Zaheer left the ground and did not come back to bowl during the second innings. He returned figures of one for seventy six in the first knock.
