Nehra set to retire from international cricket

Indian pacer Ashish Nehra has decided to retire from cricket after the first T20 International against New Zealand that would be played at Feroz Shah Kotla, on November 1.

Making his India debut in 1999, Nehra has so far played 17 Tests, 120 ODIs and 26 T20 Internationals for the country. In his overall cricket, he has picked 44 Test wickets, besides 157 ODI and 34 T20 scalps.

“Yes, Ashish has told both Ravi and Virat that he does not want to continue beyond November 1 when India plays New Zealand at the Feroz Shah Kotla. Obviously, there is some element of surprise. One thought that he would like to continue till the home season against Sri Lanka. But he feels, it’s the right time to move on,” the senior official told PTI on Wednesday.
