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.

As reported by Hindustan Times, a senior BCCI Official confirmed Nehra's decision and said, "Yes, Ashish has told both Ravi and Virat that he does not want to continue beyond November 1 when India plays New Zealand at the Feroz Shah Kotla. And that this is the right time for me to go". It's always good to retire when people are asking "Why" rather than 'Why Not?' I always wanted to retire on a high.

"But I train only to play for India and once I retire from global cricket, I will not play in the IPL as well", the left-armer said. Nehra's also said to have taken the call while keeping in mind that young and effective pacers like Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar deserve to play more number of matches.

The Delhi-born pacer made his debut for India in 1999 and has since gone on to play 17 Tests, 120 ODIs and 26 T20Is for his country.

The Kotla T20 will give Nehra a chance to finish his injury-plagued career at his home ground. He has picked 44 Test wickets, besides 157 ODI and 34 T20 scalps.


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

Part of the 2011 World Cup winning squad, Nehra injured himself in the semi-finals of the tournament against Pakistan, and was not part of the playing XI in the finals.

The left-arm speedster, who is now with the Virat Kohli-led Indian side, announced his decision here during the pre-match press conference.

Reportedly, few IPL franchises want to have Nehra on board as their bowling coach/mentor for next season of the league because of his expertise and vast knowledge of the game. This year he played for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).
