Nehra announces he will retire on November 1

Nehra announces he will retire on November 1

"I always wanted to retire on a high".

Nehra's retirement news was in the media with a BCCI official confirming about the speedster's impending decision.

The Delhi pacer addressed a press conference in Hyderabad, ahead of the 3rd T20 worldwide against Australia on Friday, where he revealed the reasons behind his retirement from all forms of cricket.

Sporting a mile-wide smile wherever he sauntered in his torpid gait, Nehra managed to outlive several pacers of his generation with sheer determination, digging out enough motivation to return from exhausting surgeries and excruciating injuries. I haven't decided yet. He said, "It's my own decision".

"I have spoken to the team management as well as the chairman of selection committee that the game against New Zealand has come in Delhi".

Razer to launch its gaming smartphone on November 1
After scooping up Nextbit , everyone's been eagerly waiting for Razer to step into the smartphone market . Min-Liang Tan, the CEO of Razer had only said it will mainly focus on gaming as well as on entertainment.


Nehra is now part of three-match T20I series against Australia but he didn't feature in the first two matches. The three-match rubber is level 1-1. "So it can't get bigger than retiring in front of your home fans where I played my first Ranji Trophy game 20 years ago", said the pacer on the eve of the third and final T20 against Australia here tomorrow. He will end his 18-year worldwide career with the T20I against New Zealand at the Feroz Shah Kotla, his home ground, on November 1. You can not get a bigger game than that.

Nehra said he had made up his mind about retirement after looking at impressive performances of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah. Whatever I am today, it is because of cricket. "Every team undergoes the transition time". "I did not take the decision over night".

The 38-year-old intimated his decision to chief coach Ravi Shastri and skipper Virat Kohli.

"When I came into this series (versus Australia), I had prepared well". In the previous two seasons he played for Sunrisers Hyderabad.

When asked whether he will become a coach, he said, "I have not thought about it yet". All those options are open, either coaching or mentoring. "I will decide. As of now I have planned only till 1st of November". But the first thing Virat said was you can still play, then second thing he said you could play IPL. "I was always mentally strong". Obviously, I could still play.

Murphy: Pulling Out Of Iran Deal Makes North Korea Agreement Harder
French President Emmanuel Macron has expressed concern about Iran's ballistic missiles and the "sunset" provisions as well. If Trump decertifies the agreement, Congress will have 60 days in which it can reimpose economic sanctions on Iran.


In the IPL, where Nehra has played 88 matches and picked up 106 wickets he has an impressive economy rate of 7.85.

"At the end of the day, you are known for your cricket but at the same time, you must also remember a person who has been this humble throughout his career". When I confirmed the news, there were many people asking me to play IPL at least. I met him couple of times and we played so many matches together. Once I will leave, I will leave. I was still playing IPL regularly. In the last two years I have done that. "Character comes when you are not doing well and then you bounce back". I am sure that will help me in my normal life.

Nehra has so far played 17 Tests (44 wickets), 120 One-Day Internationals (157 wickets) and 26 T20Is (34 wickets) for the country.

Since his debut in 1999 against Sri Lanka at the Sinhalese Sports Club under the leadership of Mohammed Azharuddin, Nehra has served Indian cricket with a lot of heart.
