Internet Desk: Indian cricket team’s veteran left-arm pacer Ashish Nehra has already informed the skipper Virat Kohli and coach Ravi Shastri on Wednesday that he will retire from all-forms of cricket after the T20I match against New Zealand on November 1, which will be played in his home town, New Delhi. A rumour came in news that he might have taken this decision after not being picked in the first two T20Is against Australia. But today Nehra made it clear to everybody that it was only his own decision.

Speaking to the media on the eve of the third T20I between India and Australia in Hyderabad, Nehra said: “It’s my own decision. Match on Nov 1 is in Delhi. There’s no bigger thing than to retire in your home town.”

“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. And that this is the right time for me to go.”

On being asked whether he would be part of the IPL, Nehra said: “If I have decided something, there is no going back. If I retire, I won’t even play the IPL.”
