With senior India pacer Ashish Nehra informing skipper Virat Kohli and head coach Ravi Shastri on Wednesday that he would be retiring after the T20I match against New Zealand on November 1, rumours started doing the rounds if it was the effect of not being picked in the first two T20Is against Australia.
Ashish Nehra plans to retire from worldwide cricket following a Twenty20 match between India against New Zealand next month, media reports have said.
He is best remembered for his 6 for 23 against England at Durban in the 2003 World Cup, a match he played despite being unwell and frequently throwing up in between his overs. He was since forced to go back on the sidelines as India experimented with a host fo young fast bowlers.
Earlier, when Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced the Indian squad for three-match T20 series, everyone was surprised to see Indian pacer Ashish Nehra's name on the list. This year he played for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).
"If I have decided something, there is no going back".
Nehra also played for four teams in the Indian Premier League from 2012-16.

"Had there not been a match at Kotla next month, Ashish would have retired after playing the third T20 worldwide [of the ongoing series against Australia] at Hyderabad on October 13", the official said.
However, Nehra is hopeful he will be a part of the XI at the Feroz Shah Kotla and bow out on a high. Match on Nov 1 is in Delhi. There's no bigger thing than to retire in your home town.
"It can't get bigger than getting to retire in front of your home crowd", said Nehra.
"Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah are the form bowlers and Ashish felt that it's only fair in the interest of the team that they continue".
"It is always good to retire when people are asking why than why not", Nehra told reporters here.
