Nehra set to retire from all forms of cricket

Nehra set to retire from all forms of cricket

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.

The 38-year-old Nehra was a surprise pick in the Indian team for the ongoing Twenty20 worldwide series against Australia.

Veteran Indian pacer Ashish Nehra on Thursday announced that he will retire from worldwide cricket after the opening T20 against New Zealand at his home ground of Delhi on November 1, ending a prolific but injury- plagued career. "I feel this is the right time and my decision has been welcomed", he added.

"It is always good to retire when people are asking why than why not", Nehra told reporters here.

Ashish Nehra plans to retire from global cricket following a Twenty20 match between India against New Zealand next month, media reports have said. "Nehra has requested for one last match at his home ground and wants to go out on a high", the official was quoted as saying by cricketnext.

Molalla mother, 4 children killed in Hwy. 99E head-on crash
Lisette Medrano-Perez, 25, of Molalla, Ore., was killed in the crash, along with four children, Oregon State Police said. Her children included an eight-year-old boy, a six-year-old boy, a four-year-old girl and a two-year-old girl.

"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.

Nehra made his worldwide debut way back in 1999, in a Test against Sri Lanka in Colombo. He has picked 44 Test wickets, besides 157 ODI and 34 T20 scalps.

If the reports are to be believed, Nehra had chose to exclude himself from the playing eleven in the opening match of ongoing three-match T20 worldwide series.

The left-arm seamer is also likely to quit from Indian Premier League (IPL).

Nehra, who took 235 wickets in 163 global appearances, was an integral part of the 2011 World Cup-winning team, although he will also be remembered for his match-winning spell of 6-23 against England in the 2003 edition. He missed the final due to a finger fracture. He then played for the Delhi Daredevils, the Chennai Super Kings and the Sunrisers Hyderabad in subsequent editions.
