Ashish Nehra to retire from International Cricket

Posted by

Indian fast bowler Ashish Nehra has decided to retire from competitive cricket after the first T20 International against New Zealand to be played at the Ferozeshah Kotla in the Capital on November 1.
Making his India debut back in 1999 under Mohammad Azharuddin, Nehra has so far played 17 Tests, 120 ODIs and 26 T20 Internationals for the country. He has picked 44 Test wickets, besides 157 ODI and 34 T20 scalps.
Currently, Nehra was brought into the T20 side for the ongoing three-match series against Australia after a gap of eight months since playing England earlier in the year. An official from BCCI said, “He (Nehra) called the entire squad and said he is calling it in Delhi. There is a speculation that not making the playing XI in the first two games against the aussies could have triggered the decision’. But a top BCCI official said Nehra had already planned his retirement.
