Veteran speedster Ashish Nehra has decided to retire from competitive cricket after the first T20 International against New Zealand at his home ground, Feroz Shah Kotla, on November 1.
According to a senior BCCI official privy to the development, the 38-year-old Nehra has intimated his decision to chief coach Ravi Shastri and skipper Virat Kohli.
With ICC not slotting any World T20 in 2018, Nehra apparently told the team management that it is only fair that performing juniors have a longer rope.
As expected, Nehra’s 18-year career was celebrated on Twitter on Wednesday.
Here are some tweets:
Ashish Nehra is the only Indian bowler to take six wickets haul twice in ODI and He is set to retire after Delhi T20 vs NZ…

If Nehra is as fit as Kohli, then why he is retiring but not Kohli? As far I know he is a better bowler than Kohli.
