Ashish Nehra announces retirement, will sign off in Delhi

Nehra, who is part of India's Twenty20 squad in the ongoing series against Australia, will bid farewell after the first T20 against New Zealand on Nov 1 at his home ground in New Delhi.

"I have spoken to the team management as well as the chairman of selection committee".

Team India will play the opening game of the T20I series against the Kiwis at the Feroz Shah Kotla and Nehra chose that as the occasion to retire from worldwide cricket. But when I train day in and day out, I train to play for India.

The team from University of MI came in the second place with their torpedo shaped "Novum" and their best ever result in Australia. But first, the team took the now traditional dip in the Victoria Square fountain as supporters cheered them.

Nehra also confirmed that he won't be playing in the lucrative Indian Premier League.

Asked to pick his fondest memory on the field, Nehra said: "People remember moments, like the six wickets against England, or the last over in Karachi everyday is a memory for me".

The left-arm fast bowler said he could have easily played worldwide cricket for another year and also the next IPL. On a query whether he would reconsider his decision to retire, Nehraji came up with "Never say Never - I am that sort of player but on this (retirement), once I have decided, there is no going back". Once I will leave, I will leave.

Nehra, who will pen the final chapter of his worldwide career on his home ground, will also retire from domestic cricket and the Indian Premier League (IPL). We all play together in IPL.

Speaking to media reporters, the 38-year-old left-arm paceman said, "When I was selected for this series, I informed Virat (Kohli) and coach (Ravi) Shastri that I think Bhuvi (Bhuvneshwar Kumar) and (Jasprit) Bumrah are doing really well. I have always trained to play for India", he said. It's like always good to retire when you are on top. "I feel this is the right time and my decision has been welcomed", he added. I met him couple of times and we played so many matches together. After being omitted for the West Indies and Sri Lanka series, Nehra was recalled for Australia's T20I leg.

Nehra represented India in 17 Test matches, where he took 44 wickets at an average of 42.40, and 120 ODIs, in which he picked up 157 wickets at an average of 31.72.
