India Thanks Nehraji as Pacer Bids Adieu to International Cricket.

Ashish Nehra bids adieu to international cricket in a match against New Zealand at New Delhi's Feroz Shah Kotla stadium.

India’s left arm pacer Ashish Nehra called off his international game by playing his final match against Zealand at New Delhi’s Feroz Shah Kotla on Wednesday.

The veteran pacer who concluded his international career without bagging a wicket, took the baton in his own hands where he bowled for about strenuous 4 overs in the first Twenty20 match of the series. Nehra conceded a score of only 29 runs as Team Blue confined the Kiwis to settle for less than 150 runs only. Winning the match by 53 runs they smoothly took a 1-0 lead in the series.

The left arm pacer, who hails from Delhi played his debut match in the year 1999 in a Test series against Sri Lanka. He played his last game in the longest format of the cricket against Pakistan in 2004.

Remembered for his 6-wicket haul in the 2003 ICC World Cup against England in Durban, the left arm bowler brought his One-Day International career to its conclusion with 157 wickets.

Cherishing the pride of wearing Indian cap for 18 years, Nehra hung up his boots by bowling the final over of yesterday’s match against New Zealand at the New Delhi’s Feroz Shah Kotla. Indian cricket fans took Twitter to express their gratitude towards the Nehra.
