- Family members and friends will be present in the VIP box to see left-arm seamer run down and bowl for the last time in international cricket.
The 38-year-old veteran seamer Ashish Nehra is all set to play his farewell match against Newzeland in the 1st T20 and looks to take the opportunity to sign off in style, helping India achieve their first victory against the Kiwis in T20Is.
The Feroz Shah Kotla T20I will be Nehra’s 164th international match. It took the southpaw speedster 18 years and as many as 12 surgeries to reach the milestone.
Ashish Nehra had made his international debut against Srilanka in at Colombo in 1999. Nehra has picked 235 wickets in his career si far, while his best stats came against England at Durban where he dismantles the opposition batting line-up by taking 6/23 in 2003 world cup tournament.
However, it is also interesting to see if Nehra get a short or not against Newzeland in 1st T20 as Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar are leading fast bowlers so if Nehra gets his farewell match then he might make his way at an expense of one spinner in the playing eleven.
Hope he ends his cricket on a high note and showcases his all the skills of Nehra Ji special in his last Game by running hard to the pitch, balls fast hit the deck hard bring the ball back to right-handers and away from left-handers and roar while taking the wicket, it’ll all fun to watch for one last time.
Note: Ashish Nehra will felicitate before the match.
