Zaheer Khan is out of the fourth Test against Australia and will also miss the VB tri-nation one-day international series.

India's premier fast bowler missed the second Test at Adelaide due to a hamstring injury. He was declared fit for this crucial game but appeared to be in discomfort after bowling just four overs in the first innings.

Do you think a fully fit Irfan Pathan Junior would have been a better bet than a partially-fit Zaheer?
