Ashish Nehra believes India's future is bright under Virat Kohli's leadership

With Nehra set to bid adieu to the game after the game, India will certainly be expecting an important contribution, especially in the death overs.

Forming the second half of one of the most lethal opening pair is Shikhar Dhawan, who was adjudged the man of the match in the first T20I for his belligerent knock of 80 runs in 52 deliveries.

Nehra, who never lost to the conditions, bowled 10 overs in the match and this was proved to be his best ODI performance.

Nehra bows out as India's third highest wicket-taker in T20Is behind R Ashwin and Jasprit Bumrah with 34 wickets from 27 matches. "The future of Indian cricket is in safe hands for the next six-seven years", he added. Many people asked me if you would have liked to play more Test cricket.

"The game has changed a lot since I started playing".

Just before Nehra's final match on Wednesday, former India cricketer and teammate Hemang Badani took to Facebook to share a video, where he recalls his fondest memories with the Delhi pacer. Earlier we had superb players, Ganguly, MS or Sachin, I can't name everybody. "I am always happy whether I am retired or not", he said in the post-match presentation with Sanjay Manjrekar.

Nehra made his debut in 1999 and when queried what has changed in cricket and within the team in the last 18 years, Nehra said there have been big changes in terms of rules but maintained that this India side is here to stay. Nehra's most iconic moment on the field for India came during the 2003 World Cup against England when his 6/23 helped India to a comprehensive win.

After years of toil, Nehra walks away from the game with a tally of 235 wickets from 164 matches across all the formats in global cricket.
