Ashish Nehra set to retire from cricket on November 1
Окт 12 2017 by Marjorie Miles
Ashish Nehra will bring the curtains down on his 18-year-old worldwide career on November 1 and left-arm seamer hoped it would end on a high in his hometown Delhi, where India and New Zealand will clash for the final T20 global.
"But I train only to play for India and once I retire from global cricket, I will not play in the IPL as well", the left-armer said.
"Yes, Ashish has told both Ravi and Virat that he does not want to continue beyond November 1 when India plays New Zealand at the Feroz Shah Kotla".
The 38-year-old pacer, who made his worldwide debut in December 1999 against Sri Lanka, was picked for Friday's third T20I match against Australia.
"Obviously, there is some element of surprise".
"I think Bhuvi (Bhuvneshwar Kumar) and (Jasprit) Bumrah are doing really well".
Nehra made his worldwide debut way back in 1999, in a Test against Sri Lanka in Colombo. Can't get bigger than playing in Delhi and retiring there.
Nehra was not included in the team for the first two matches in Ranchi and Guwahati and it remains to be seen if Kohli plays the veteran in the series-decider on Friday. "Nehra has requested for one last match at his home ground and wants to go out on a high", the official had said. "But he feels, it's the right time to move on", the senior official told PTI on Wednesday.
It is understood that Nehra won't play even in the Indian Premier League's next season. This year he played for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).
He formed a potent new-ball bowling partnership with fellow left-armer Zaheer Khan at the turn of the century, but persistent injuries - which resulted in surgeries on his ankle and knee - hampered a stop-start career. He has picked 44 Test wickets, besides 157 ODI and 34 T20 scalps.
He was part of the Indian squad which won the 2011 Cricket World Cup at home.
