Nottingham:India left-arm seamer Zaheer Khan enjoyed a four-wicket boost on Wednesday as he continued his rehabilitation from a shoulder injury.
"I hadn't played for four or five weeks so it's great to be back in the wickets. It's a real confidence-booster. I'm very pleased with my performance," said Zaheer, who took 4-19 as India restricted Ireland to 112-8 in their last World Twenty20 Group A match at Trent Bridge.
"The shoulder is coming along well. I feel better day by day and I am improving, I feel 100-per cent now."
Zaheer had also taken a wicket in India's opening win in the tournament against Bangladesh.
