India's Nehra to quit internationals, IPL

Ashish Nehra to retire from cricket after Delhi T20I against New Zealand Report

"Not that I retire in November there are five months in between and can easily play IPL. If I am leaving, I will leave completely".

He further added that the team is doing very well with Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah taking the mantle. He could have played a lot more but for the constant injuries.

Nehra is now part of three-match T20I series against Australia but he didn't feature in the first two matches. "So once I chose to quit, I thought I will quit IPL as well", he said. Like I said, I could have played easily one more year of global cricket. But every time a captain thinks I can deliver in the last over is a memory too. Whenever Ashish Nehra is in the squad, he is ready to be in the playing XI. "Straightaway I spoke to captain (Virat Kohli) and coach (Ravi Shastri), told them whenever Ashish Nehra plays he is in the XI and not sit out", he said.

"The most important thing is what the dressing room thinks about me. We won the World Cup final (in 2011), lost also (in 2003) but tough to pinpoint my fondest memory". Like, in between, unfortunately, the problem in India is people count you as playing only when you are playing worldwide cricket or the IPL. "My opinion is that it is better to go when people are saying "why" than when they will say "why not", added Nehra. People have always said that you've had 11-12 surgeries, how you made a comeback despite that. So those struggling periods made me strong mentally. He last donned the national outfit during the home T20I series against England earlier this year. "For me the true measure of success is how many times you bounce back from failure".


Also, he could be a valuable asset to any management team since he has played the game for such a long time and has seen it evolve over the past decades, which holds him in great shape if he takes up coaching. "So, I can't pinpoint a particular performance [as my best]".

Ahead of India's 3rd T20I against Australia in Hyderabad tomorrow (October 13), the 38-year-old told reporters that he had chose to "retire on a high". "In global cricket, every day is a memory, every day is a new experience", he said. His most recent comeback in 2016 after being out of the team for five years marked the start of one of the more successful phases of his career.

On a lighter note, Nehra said that he has made plans only till November 1, when he will say goodbye to the game, though he is open to coaching roles in the future.
