"I am not even playing IPL, so you can judge my decision". Plagued by injuries, Nehra's career could not touch the heights it was expected to scale but he played his role in some memorable triumphs for Indian cricket.

"The only one thing that I'm not happy is my body".

"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.

Nehra was recently picked for the three-match T20 global series against Australia but everyone was surprised when he did not figure in the playing XI for the first two matches.
