Ashish Nehra was once one of the best new-ball bowlers for India during the early years of this new millennium. He brings the popping crease most of the virtues of a classical left-arm bowler-pace, accuracy, subtle variations of line and length. He has an ability to move the ball off the wicket and a devastating late inswinger that can harass the best.
The high point came in 2003 World Cup against England, where he scalped 6 for 23. During his venomous spell at Durban, South Africa he bowled his fastest delivery 149.7 km/ph (93 MPH) just seven days after his 149.5. Unfortunately, injury battles eroded his career. The 36-year old played just 120 matches for India.
