Nehra has decided to retire from competitive cricket and has informed chief coach Ravi Shastri and skipper Virat Kohli about the same.
According to reports Ashish Nehra will retire on Novemver 1st. With ICC not not slotting any World T20 in 2018, Nehra apparently told the team management that it is only fair that performing juniors have a longer rope.
"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. Obviously, there is some element of surprise. One thought that he would like to continue till the home season against Sri Lanka. But he feels, it's the right time to move on," said on of the senior official
