Wishes had poured in for India's World Cup-winning pacer on Wednesday, which is recorded as his official birthday.
Zaheer is currently in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) with Mumbai Indians (MI) for Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 as their Director of Cricket Operations.
The Maharashtra native played in 309 matches for the Indian national team, and grabbed 610 wickets. Also, a 2011 ODI World Cup winner, Zaheer was famous for his yorkers. He has also received the Arjuna Award and Padma Shri.
In a career marred with recurring injuries, Zaheer represented MI, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Delhi Daredevils in the IPL.
It is worth noting that only Muttiah Muralitharan (325) and Shaun Pollock (252) have scalped more left-handed batsmen than Zaheer, who has registered 237 wickets of southpaws.
