  • Ashish Nehra announces retirement, will sign off in Delhi

VETERAN Indian pacer Ashish Nehra chose to call time on his injury-ravaged career after next month's opening T20 against New Zealand at his home ground of Delhi, saying "it is always good to retire when people are asking why rather than why not". He continued to be part of Indian squad in the shortest format and spearheaded the bowling attack in the 2016 edition of the T20 World Cup at home.

Nehra said that he has spoken with the Indian Cricket team management and with MSK Prasad, the chairman of the selection committee, regarding his decision to retire at his home town.

Nehra was recently picked for the three-match T20 global series against Australia but he wasn't picked for the first two matches. He will bow out from the global scene after the first Twenty20 worldwide against New Zealand which is set to be played at his home ground at the Feroz Shah Kotla on November 1. "Since India play their next T20 in Delhi, Nehra prefers to play that match", the official further added.

Nehra also confirmed that he won't be playing in the lucrative Indian Premier League.

"I was always mentally strong and whenever I used to train, I always used to play for India".

As I have said, there are no big (T20) tournaments coming.
