ashish nehra

Ashish Diwansingh Nehra ( pronunciation Hindi: आशीष नेहरा; born 29 April 1979) is an Indian cricketer (left-arm medium fast bowler) who has represented India at the international level since 1999. He embodies various virtues of a left- handed bowler- pace, accuracy, strategic variations in line and length, and the ability to swing the ball both ways. He has been particularly effective with the new ball and at the death overs. Due to fitness issues, he has been absent from the national scene for extending stretches, but has been a part of the Indian team in two largely successful World Cup campaigns, two Asia Cups, and three Champions Trophies. He has also been particularly effective in the IPL, in which he has represented five different teams. Ashish Nehra was also famously called "one of the best bowlers that the Indian team has ever seen", by Ravi Shastri. M.S. Dhoni also suggested Nehra's name as the future bowling coach for India considering his massive experience, his ability to easily swing the ball both ways and his bowling under pressure. Ashish Nehra announced his retirement from all forms of cricket and informed the BCCI that the T20 match against New Zealand on November 1, 2017 will be his last appearance. Wikipedia
