Zaheer gets his 200th Test scalp

Hamilton: India's speed star Zaheer Khan became the seventh Indian bowler to take 200 wickets in Test cricket.

Zaheer achieved the feet when he had New Zealand opener Tim McIntosh caught at first slip by Sachin Tendulkar. He joined Anil Kumble (619), Kapil Dev (434), Harbhajan Singh (315*), Bishan Singh Bedi (266), BS Chandrasekhar (242) and Javagal Srinath (236) when he achieved the feat.

With six five-wicket hauls in 63 Test matches, Zaheer has been India"s best fast bowler of the 21st century and seems to be getting better with his rhythm and variations with each passing game.
