Gautam Gambhir has an advice for Zaheer Khan on how to tackle 'bouncers' — not the on-field variety but the ones married life serves up from time to time.
Zaheer, on Thursday, got married to his actor fiance Sagarika Ghatge and hosted a small reception, which some of his former Team India colleagues like Sachin Tendulkar, Ajit Agarkar, Parthiv Patel and Harbhajan Singh in attendance. Yuvraj Singh's wife Hazel Keech and Bollywood celebs like Vidya Balan, Aditya Roy Kapur and others were also pictured at the party.
Others wished the former India speedster on Twitter. Gambhir, who has been a long-time teammate of Zaheer, also took the opportunity to wish his old colleague and friend but added a witty twist to it. “Congrats @ImZaheer @sagarikavghatge on the marital knot. Finally, there is someone who can bounce Zaheer too. Bro I can tell u from experience never hook or pull, only duck or sway out of line. Right @YUVSTRONG12 @harbhajan_singh?,” he wrote.

Well, coming from one of the better players of the short ball in recent memory and, more importantly, someone who has been married for over six years, Zaheer would do well to heed Gambhir's wisdom.
Duck away, Zak and best of luck.
