Nehra to retire from global cricket next month


India paceman Ashish Nehra is to retire from worldwide cricket after the opener of a three-match Twenty20 series against New Zealand on November 1 at his home ground in Delhi, local media have reported. One of the most successful India bowlers, Nehra has played under seven different captains in a career that spanned over 18 long years.

"He is such a lovely human being and has worked so well on his game".

"At times when I wake up, especially in the winter in Delhi, my knees are so sore, it is half an hour before I can even leave my bed and am able to walk", added Nehra.

"I always wanted to retire on a high". As I have said, there are no big (T20) tournaments coming.

Making his India debut back in 1999 under Mohammed Azharuddin, Nehra has so far played 17 Tests, 120 ODIs and 26 T20 Internationals for the country.

"I was always mentally strong and whenever I used to train, I always used to play for India". I won't even play IPL. Hopefully, nothing got serious.

Speaking to media reporters, the 38-year-old left-arm paceman said, "When I was selected for this series, I informed Virat (Kohli) and coach (Ravi) Shastri that I think Bhuvi (Bhuvneshwar Kumar) and (Jasprit) Bumrah are doing really well".

The rock, believed to be roughly the size of a cricket ball, was thrown at a window on the right-hand side of the bus, while it was returning from the stadium.

Following the incident, Australian opener Aaron Finch had tweeted a picture of a broken window saying, "Pretty scary having a rock thrown through the team bus window on the way back to the hotel!"
