Zaheer is no doubt the strike bowler for India in tests...his absence was badly felt in the 1st test match when SA piled on tons of runs... Can he make the difference???Are there no other strike bowler if Zaheer is not around...Sreesanth and Ishant look promising but still they are performing under par which is not a good sign and no one seems to be a stand out bowler for India like other countries...its a pity sight..

Zaheer alone can't make any difference if our batsman only don't score in the match :( as a eperienced player all are expecting that he strikes at crucial times and give other bowler better platforms for there spell...so lets hope for the best.......

Zaheer's absence was indeed felt but the question here is will he alone be able to scalp 16 wickets (we only took 4 south African wickets). Not possible at all. I think the others bowlers should come to the party aswell. Especially Ishanth and Sreesanth. Ishanth is exceptionally talented and I don't know what happened to him. Might be the Australians placed a curse on him...just kidding. Sreesanth.. I don't understand why he is in the team in the first place. He can't bowl for which he is in the team for and he can't field nor bat. May be he is paying the board to travel with the Indian team. The truth is we have to get 2 more quality pace bowlers if we have to stay on top.

lets hope that he will make the difference. surley his absence was well felt in the first test match. not only him, every seamer should bowl well using the good seam bowling conditon present in south african pitches. but thats not happening with the indian team.
