Ashish Nehra set to retire from cricket on November 1

12 October 2017

Nehra is now part of three-match T20I series against Australia but he didn't feature in the first two matches.

The unnamed senior official said: "Yes, Ashish has told both Ravi and Virat that he does not want to continue beyond November 1 when India plays New Zealand at the Feroz Shah Kotla. But he feels, it's the right time to move on". "It's good if you retire when people ask "why" and not when they start saying "why not", said the veteran pacer from Delhi.

"If I have decided something, there is no going back".

Express Scripts Holding Company (NASDAQ:ESRX) Shares Dip Under Moving Averages
Becker Capital Management Inc. raised its stake in shares of Express Scripts Holding Company by 30.6% in the third quarter. Nordea Investment Management AB grew its position in shares of Express Scripts Holding by 1.4% during the 2nd quarter.

The Kotla T20 will give Nehra a chance to finish his injury-plagued career at his home ground.

Nehra did not feature in the opening two games against Australia as in-form new ball duo of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah was preferred.

"Had there not been a match at Kotla next month, Ashish would have retired after playing the third T20 worldwide [of the ongoing series against Australia] at Hyderabad on October 13", the official said.

Making his India debut back in 1999 under Mohammed Azharuddin, Nehra has so far played 17 Tests, 120 ODIs and 26 T20 Internationals for the country. "Nehra has requested for one last match at his home ground and wants to go out on a high", the official had said.

Boy Scouts to recruit girls
The Boy Scouts of America says they chose to include girls to help busy families consolidate programs for their children. Larger "packs", which are comprised of dens, will decide whether to include dens of each gender or not, the BSA said.

Having reportedly made himself unavailable to play in the Indian Premier League Twenty20 competition next season, it is understood he is being tapped by several franchises to join their backroom staff as a bowling coach.

The Delhi-native has collected 44, 157 and 34 wickets in Test, ODI and T20I cricket in his 18-year global career. He then played for the Delhi Daredevils, the Chennai Super Kings and the Sunrisers Hyderabad in subsequent editions.

"At times when I wake up, especially in the winter in Delhi, my knees are so sore, it is half an hour before I can even leave my bed and am able to walk", added Nehra.
