Sourav Ganguly's tweet to Ashish Nehra is winning the internet

Veteran Indian pacer Ashish Nehra on Thursday announced that he will retire from global cricket after the opening T20 against New Zealand at his home ground of Delhi on November 1, ending a prolific but injury-plagued career.

Nehra, who will pen the final chapter of his global career on his home ground, will also retire from domestic cricket and the Indian Premier League (IPL). "I have spoken to the team management as well as the chairman of the selection committee", Nehra told the media. "If I retire, I won't even play the IPL", Nehra said. India will host New Zealand for three one-day internationals and three T20 matches starting October 22. Nehra, 38, who is part of India's Twenty20 squad in the ongoing series against Australia, will bow out after the first T20 against New Zealand on November 1 at his home ground in New Delhi. "Since India play their next T20 in Delhi, Nehra prefers to play that match", the official further added. Nehra also played for four teams in the Indian Premier League from 2012-16. Nehra never played an ODI for India after that. I realize that when I retire on November 1, there are five months before the next IPL and I could easily play. I could even play another year of global cricket. Once I will leave, I will leave.

It's always good to retire when people are asking Why rather than Why Not? I won't even play IPL. "And that this is the way forward for me". "I hope he will do well in Hyderabad and win a game for my country", said Raina.

The Delhi-native has collected 44 test, 157 one-day worldwide and 34 Twenty20 wickets in his 18-year global career. Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar have been in great form in limited over formats of the game recently and that because of that, Nehra has been warming the bench. I met him couple of times and we played so many matches together.
