I was 13 years old then and struggling for a place in the school team. To have played 19 years is very hard as a fast bowler. I know how professional he’s been and how hard working he was. He deserved this kind of a farewell with the crowd cheering up for him. He can now spend more time with his family, he’s got a nice family. We all will stay in touch but we’ll miss him and I wish him all the very best.”

“When I started playing the game, I did not take any selector’s permission to play. When I am quitting, I have not taken their permission either,” Nehra said after his final game,which was the first T20 against New Zealand in which India had won by 53 runs.
