Team India's legendary fast bowler Ashish Nehra will retire from international cricket after the first T20 match against New Zealand next month on November 1. PTI has tweeted his information. This match will be played at Delhi's Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium. There is speculation that this will be Ashish Nehra's farewell match and Nehra will play his last international match at his home ground.
Earlier, cricket experts had questioned the selection of Ashish Nehra, 38, who were included in Team India for the 3-match T-20 series against Australia, after which Nehra had said that 'I am fit and India's I can play cricket for 2 years. "
A senior BCCI official told that Nehra has told coach Ravi Shastri and captain Virat Kohli about this decision. The ICC will not host the World T20 in 2018 and in such a manner, Nehra has told the team management It would be appropriate that junior players performing well get opportunities.
It is believed that Nehra will not participate in the IPL next year. Nehra, who led India in 1999 in the captaincy of Mohammed Azharuddin, played 17 Tests, 120 One Day Internationals and 26 T20 matches. He took 44 wickets in Test matches, 157 in ODIs and 34 wickets in T20. Nehra is remembered for scoring six wickets with 23 runs in the match against England in the 2003 World Cup. He played in this match despite being ill and performed brilliantly.
Due to injury, he kept coming out of the team inside. His Test career was stopped in Pakistan in 2004. After that he made a comeback in the ODI team but after the 2011 World Cup semi-final he did not even play a single ODI. Ashish Nehra, after injury, performed well in the IPL and returned to the International T20, after which he remained in T20 cricket for the Indian team.
