Ashish Nehra (1999-2017): The journey in pictures

But it is not fake news.

"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". I realize that when I retire on November 1, there are five months before the next IPL and I could easily play.

Miley Cyrus Is Back to Her Wild Ways on Carpool Karaoke
Cyrus started the segment by talking about how she "f*cking wrecked The Voice sound trailer" and tried to hide it. I can't smoke before I get onstage or I get too scared", Cyrus revealed. "That's how insane I am".

Calling it a decision taken on his own and not forced, Nehra said: "It's always good to retire when people ask why rather than why not". "It can't get bigger than getting to retire in front of your home fans where I played my first Ranji Trophy game 20 years ago", he added. I think BCCI looking into it. "I always wanted to retire on a high", he added. "If I am leaving, I will leave completely".

Meanwhile, Raina also reflected his views on stone-pelting incident on the Australian cricket team bus which took place as the visiting side returned to the team hotel from the Barsapara Cricket Stadium following their eight-wicket win in the second T20I of the three-match series in Guwahati. I played a lot under (Sourav) Ganguly and (MS) Dhoni. His last T20I was against England in February this year. "When I came in this time, I had straightway told the captain and coach about my plans and about my thought process and they respected my decision", he said. I think this is the way forward, especially the manner in which Bhuvneshwar has been bowling in the last couple of years, whenever I've played with (Jasprit) Bumrah, either of Bhuvi or (Mohammed) Shami have had to sit out. "We won the World Cup final (in 2011), lost also (in 2003) but tough to pinpoint my fondest memory". It is good to see that people think I have more to contribute to the game and the Indian team. Like I said, I could have played easily one more year of worldwide cricket.

Spain moves towards activating 'nuclear option' on Catalonia crisis
The crisis has caused deep uncertainty for businesses in one of the wealthiest regions in the eurozone's fourth-largest economy. Spain and Catalonia now enter into the unknown, as Madrid has repeatedly said independence is not up for discussion.

Earlier, Nehra was quoted as saying that he wants to play for another two years, but now it seems that that is not going to happen. "And that this is the right time for me to go", Nehra said, while addressing a press conference a day before the third T20I in Hyderabad. "People say "you have had 11-12 surgeries, so how can you continue". So those struggling periods made me strong mentally. "Character comes when you are not doing well and then you bounce back".

"People will remember you if you do well for national team but for me there have moments in domestic cricket and the IPL that I will cherish forever". "When you are playing cricket, every day is a memory", he said. Definitely for me those are great memories. I will always go thinking that I must be doing something good so that captain asks me to bowl the last over. "So, I can't pinpoint a particular performance [as my best]".
