Zaheer cannot have enough of cricket

Too much cricket may have forced Mahendra Singh Dhoni into a sabbatical but for his Test colleague Zaheer Khan -- the more, the better.

Too much cricket may have forced Mahendra Singh Dhoni into a sabbatical but for his Test colleague Zaheer Khan -- the more, the better.

Far from being intimidated by India's packed calendar for the remainder of the year, Zaheer, who made a comeback to the Indian Test team for the Sri Lanka tour after a long injury layoff, said he could not wait to get into action.

"I am definitely looking forward to it," the left-arm seamer told CNN-IBN.

"I am sure I will enjoy playing more and more matches. That's what I have always been saying, that I really enjoy playing a lot of games," he said.

"To just keep playing a lot of matches is the best form of practice you can get. There is nothing like playing matches to get into the best rhythm," Zaheer added.

Although Zaheer's view is just opposite of what Dhoni has, the seamer insists it's an individual call.

"It's a very individual view as far as too much cricket is concerned. I have always felt that whenever I have been bowling a lot of overs, I'm in better shape. I have realised that when I went to play a season of county cricket.

"It's something individual, maybe my body is structured that way, or I prefer it that way. So I think it's an individual call," he said.
