Mumbai, Jan 24: Zaheer Khan credits his leading role for India as a motivating factor in a brilliant run of form that has placed him amongst cricket's best pace bowlers.
"I am enjoying the role, the challenge. I am really enjoying the space I'm in right now," the left-arm spearhead said. "I like going to sleep with this pressure. I like getting up and facing a new battle. That's how I look at it."
Zaheer heads an exciting new-ball attack alongside youngster Ishant Sharma, who played a key role in beating Australia and England in back-to-back home Test series last year.
