Want to play as long as I can - Ashish Nehra

Ashish Nehra has been on a roll ever since he earned his spot back in the Indian T20 setup. Nehra has been instrumental to the success achieved by team India as his strikes in the powerplay overs have given India a massive tactical advantage. With him being at the wrong side of 30, Nehra is in the evening of his career. In his latest interaction with the media, ahead of India’s game against Bangladesh, he admitted that he wanted to play as long as he could.

“I’m loving it,” Nehra said, when quizzed about his return to the side. “Whatever responsibility the captain and team management have given me, I’m just trying to do the best I can do, and I will just try to play as long as I can, as long as my body holds up, and keep working hard.”

“I always love to be in my team, to be one of the top two bowlers who can bowl up front and bowl at death, so as long as I’m doing that, I’m really happy. For that definitely I have to work really hard, and I’m trying to do that, and my job is really important. We have people like Jasprit Bumrah or Bhuvneshwar Kumar or Mohammed Shami, so whatever experience I have in the last 16-17 years, I just pass it on to them, and I’m sure it’s helping them,” Nehra further added.

Speaking about his time away from the game, Nehra said, “I’ve been working hard for the last 3-4 years, I was looking forward to making a comeback, and my family, friends, it’s difficult for me to pinpoint one thing that I’m grateful to, but definitely, my main motive was to keep working hard. I wasn’t somebody just working hard to play domestic cricket or IPL. I always train or work hard to play international cricket, so that’s how you make a comeback.”
