Even as Ashish Nehra stunned cricket fans with his decision to retire from worldwide cricket after the game against New Zealand at the Ferozeshah Kotla in the Capital on November 1, many asked him to play a few more seasons of the cash-rich Indian Premier League. So I can easily play in IPL. "The game against New Zealand is in Delhi where I played my first Ranji Trophy game 20 years ago", said the 38-year-old on the eve of the T20 series decider against Australia here.

The left-arm pacer, who made his India debut back in 1999 under Mohammad Azharuddin, represented the country in 17 Tests, 120 ODIs and 26 T20Is.

Nehra was recently picked for the three-match T20 worldwide series against Australia but he wasn't picked for the first two matches.

"What we have heard is that Nehra has spoken to the captain and coach and informed them about his decision to retire after the T20 match in Delhi". He has not played any cricket after getting injured in the last IPL. But when I train day in and day out, I train to play for India.

"I was always mentally strong and whenever I used to train, I always used to play for India", Nehra said about his retirement from the Indian Premier League as well.

"There will be a gap of five months between the next edition of IPL and November". But when I train day in and day out, I train to play for India.
