Ashish Nehra announces retirement, will sign off in Delhi

Veteran Indian pacer Ashish Nehra announced that he will retire from international cricket after the opening T20 against New Zealand at his home ground of Delhi on November 1, ending a prolific but injury- plagued career.

“It is always good to retire when people are asking why than why not,” Nehra told.

“I have spoken to the team management as well the chairman of selection committee that the game against New Zealand has come in Delhi. So it can’t get bigger than retiring in front of your home fans where I played my first Ranji Trophy game 20 years ago,” said the pacer on the eve of the third and final T20 against Australia in Hyderabad.

“I always wanted to retire on a high. I feel this is the right time and my decision has been welcomed,” he added.
