India's Ashish Nehra set to retire from global cricket, say media reports

The lanky pacer had been named in India's squad for the three match T20I series against Australia but so far has not featured in the first two games.

The 38-year-old has been plagued by injuries and last played for India in February.

Veteran speedster Ashish Nehra has made a decision to retire from all forms of cricket and will play his last competetive match against New Zealand in the first T20 global against New Zealand at his home ground, Feroz Shah Kotla, on November 1. "But he feels, it's the right time to move on", a senior BCCI official told PTI. "If I retire, I won't even play the IPL".

"What we have heard is that Nehra has spoken to the captain and coach and informed them about his decision to retire after the T20 match in Delhi. Had there not been a match at Kotla next month, Ashish would have retired after playing the third T20 global at Hyderabad on October 13", the official added. "Nehra has requested for one last match at his home ground and wants to go out on a high", the official was quoted as saying by cricketnext. Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar have been in great form in limited over formats of the game recently and that because of that, Nehra has been warming the bench.

Nehra made his worldwide debut way back in 1999, in a Test against Sri Lanka in Colombo.

Overall, Nehra has 44 Test wickets, 157 ODI wickets and 34 scalps in T20Is.

"Had there not been a match at Kotla next month, Ashish would have retired after playing the third T20 global at Hyderabad on October 13".

Furthermore, the left-arm pacer won't be seen in the Indian Premier League from next year, an edition where an open auction is rumoured to take place.

He was a member of the World Cup winning India side of 2011 where he put in a match winning performance against Pakistan in the semi-finals. So I can easily play in IPL.
