Khaleel Ahmed wants to follow in footsteps of his idol

The Indian cricket team has completed T20I series whitewash against the West Indies after another comprehensive performance in the final game in Florida on Tuesday. Rishabh Pant and Virat Kohli led the run chase with match-winning 50s in pursuit of 147.

Young pacer Khaleel Ahmed was given a chance in the previous two games in which he bowled beautifully in seaming conditions. In an interview, Khaleel has said that he wants to take his game to the next level and become the same kind of player as his idol, Zaheer Khan.

“I want to play as long as Zaheer bhai played for the country. I want to serve Team India the way he did. When Zaheer bhai used to start proceedings for India, there used to be lots of excitement and cheer. I want to take my game to that level. I also want to become an asset for the team just like he was,” he said.
