Veteran Indian pacer Ashish Nehra has revealed that it is much more difficult to make a comeback to the national team than actually making your debut. Before India’s departure to Bangladesh for the 2016 T20 Asia Cup, Nehra spoke to the media and addressed questions on his comeback. Nehra has made a fantastic comeback to the Indian T20 side, after spending almost 5 years in the wilderness.

“It’s very difficult to make a comeback. Comebacks are much more difficult than debuts. I’ve made a comeback after 36,” said Nehra. Nehra along with young pace sensation Jasprit Bumrah, has been simply brilliant with the new ball and has been among the wickets. The Delhi pacer had a memorable outing in the T20I series against Sri Lanka and has already picked up 7 wickets since his comeback in Adelaide against Australia.

“It’s not easy for pacers to keep performing day in and day out. There will be pressure. You have to keep working hard. I train to play international cricket, not aim to play only domestic cricket,” said Nehra. “You don’t play many T20Is. IPL is a great help for us when it comes to T20 cricket. You get used to it as a bowler. You just practice according. It’s not a big deal for me. I’m somebody bowling up front or one or two overs in the death. The more you play, the better you become,” he said.

Nehra also spoke about how he guides rookie pacer Jasprit Bumrah. “It’s a good experience. It is not that I always tell him the things. We are two completely different kind of bowlers, different actions. We’re having a good partnership. Hopefully, we can do well in next couple of months,” Nehra said.
