Whats the point?

Poor Zaheer Khan. He hasn't yet figured out that Indian pace bowlers that get dramatic early breakthroughs condemn their side to defeat. Srinath took two wickets in the first over of the World Cup semi-final in 1996 (gee, we know what happened thereafter); Irfan Pathan took a hat-trick in his his first over at Karachi and India proceeded to lose by 341 runs. What a feeling it must be; you go on, getting the opponent's captain, game after game, for a duck (or one run), in the first overs of a game, and your team carries on losing. Not a good feeling for a bowler.
