India's Nehra to retire from internationals

The left-arm pacer, who is also part of the ongoing three-match T20I series against Australia, is best remembered for his superb bowling spell against England at Durban in the 2003 ICC World Cup, where he picked six wickets for just 23 runs.

"I have spoken to the team management as well the chairman of selection committee. The game against New Zealand is in Delhi so you can't get better than that when you retire in front of your home crowd", the 38-year-old said at a press conference ahead of Friday's third T20I against Australia. "Since India play their next T20 in Delhi, Nehra prefers to play that match", the official further added. "So, while I spend the day with my family, I hereby announce my retirement from all forms of worldwide cricket and the Indian Premier League".

India left-arm seamer Ashish Nehra has confirmed that he will bring his illustrious global career, which spanned for 18 years, to an end next month.

"There will be a gap of five months between the next edition of IPL and November". Once I will leave, I will leave. It's like always good to retire when you are on top. I won't even play IPL.

Nehra, who will pen the final chapter of his global career on his home ground, will also retire from domestic cricket and the Indian Premier League (IPL). "I hope it won't happen again in future", he said.

Singles can increase their cap from $500 to $750 and families can increase from $1,000 to $1,500. Aromatherapy, herbalism, kinesiology, shiatsu and tai chi are also reportedly on the list.

In remembrance of his statement, while announcing retirement, he said, "God has been kind and I have done what I wanted to do - on the field and in my life and I had decided sometime back that I will retire on my 37th birthday".

"I feel this is the way forward". Thanks to the BCCI and anti-corruption unit as well as the cops, I think they looked after each and everything really well. I met him couple of times and we played so many matches together.

So, let us wish Ashish Nehra will spark one last time at his home ground playing for team India.

Nehra represented India in 17 Test matches, where he took 44 wickets at an average of 42.40, and 120 ODIs, in which he picked up 157 wickets at an average of 31.72.
