Share

The 38-year-old pacer, who made his global debut in December 1999 against Sri Lanka, was picked for Friday's third T20I match against Australia.

Indian pacer, Ashish Nehra has reportedly chose to retire from worldwide and competitive cricket after the conclusion of the first T20 global match against New Zealand on November 1.

"Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah are form bowlers and Ashish felt that it's only fair in the interest of the team that they continue", the official said. He is set to play his last match on his home ground - Feroz Shah Kotla in New Delhi.

"Had there not been a match at Kotla next month, Ashish would have retired after playing the third T20 worldwide at Hyderabad on Friday, October 13". Many have featured in matches with or against him, while others have played in the same era, but never in the same game. Obviously, there is some element of surprise. "But he feels, it's the right time to move on", the senior BCCI official was quoted as saying by PTI.

Furthermore, the left-arm pacer won't be seen in the Indian Premier League from next year, an edition where an open auction is rumoured to take place. This year he played for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).

Nehra recently made headlines for having passed the rigorous Yo-Yo Test and paved his way into the T20I side, in spite of being a senior player. Since then his career has been plagued by injuries. He has picked 44 Test wickets, besides 157 ODI and 34 T20 scalps.

Nehra was also a member of the 2011 World Cup winning Indian team, but did not play in the final because of an injury.
