At 41, Zaheer Khan is not at the peak of fitness but the former India fast bowler turned back the clock during the Road Safety World Series opener between India Legends and West Indies legends at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai as he took a stunning catch to dismiss Ricardo Powell. In an attempt to score quickly, Powell played a lofted shot towards deep square leg but Zaheer was present at the right position. The pacer took a jump and caught the ball with his outstretched right hand as the stadium erupted in applause.

Sachin Tendulkar was extremely impressed with the effort and during the post match presentation, he said that he has seen Zaheer feel like this.
