Indian cricket is in safe hands for next several years: Ashish Nehra

Indian cricket is in safe hands for next several years: Ashish Nehra

As India's old-timer paceman Ashish Nehra is set to bid adieu to the worldwide cricket in the T20I against India at his home ground Feroz Shah Kotla, captain Virat Kohli hailed the 38-year-old calling him a "great servant for Indian cricket".

Top-ranked New Zealand, who have never lost a T20 game against India in five completed outings, have picked two seamers and two spinners for the first of the three matches.

Nehra said the game has changed a lot since he started playing.

New Zealand, the No. 1 ranked T20I side in the globe, need a series win to avoid being and it also occupied a top spot in the country India, now ranked fifth, require a 3-0 result to move up to second.

Watch Dave Grohl and Kristen Bell's Frozen Metallica mash-up
In the same episode, Grohl also interviewed fellow rocker Alice Cooper - appropriate, given that it was Halloween. In case you missed it, last night's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! was downright hilarious.

India's off-spinner Harbhajan Singh also extended his wishes to Nehra on Twitter and posted a picture of both doing, "Bhangra" post World Cup 2011 win. He further remarked that he must be the one bowler who bowled the most number of last overs for India.

Earlier, Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma struck scintillating half-centuries during a record 158-run partnership and powered India to a formidable 202 for three. "Virat was on my case for the last 2-3 overs and I said I will bowl the last over", he said with New Zealand needing 61 runs in the final over.

Eventually, Nehra, also bowling the day's final over, returned respectable figures of none for 29 in his four-over spell.

In 2015, when Virender Sehwag was felicitated on his retirement at the Kotla during the India-South Africa Test, the DDCA had put up huge metal boardings of his best Test performances on both the ends of the wicket.

Trump orders tougher vetting after NY attack
In practice, that promise so far has been labeled "enhanced vetting", which has been implemented in regards to the U.S. We must not allow ISIS to return, or enter, our country after defeating them in the Middle East and elsewhere .

In a moment of cunning captaincy, Kane Williamson used New Zealand's playing review. The packed crowd at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium was treated to some delightful - as well as unorthodox - cricketing shots by Dhawan and Rohit.

Dhawan was on eight when Mitchell Santner dropped a simple chance at point and he went on to crash 10 fours and two sixes in his 52-ball stay.

Colin Munro was hit over long-on for a six and having gained in confidence, sat on one knee and smashed Boult as the ball sailed over the fence behind fine leg. Sharma's first big hit of the innings was a slashed six over third man off Southee. Dhawan's dismissal looked like a stumping, but he had found willow.
