Andre Russell broke a billion hearts when he launched Virat Kohli’s delivery into the stands of Wankhede Stadium. The bowler himself was heart broken because he could not do it for one more time for India.
Another man standing in close vicinity had similar reactions as the dream was finally over. Ashish Nehra was living a dream ever since he made a comeback in the Indian side in February. Nehra had bowled brilliantly in all the match in the World T20 and the matches played preceding the ICC event. Whenever we saw him on the field he looked involved and eager to take responsibility. Be it bowling at the top or in the end or even mentoring Hardik Pandya in that crunch game against Bangladesh.
Fans on Social Media wanted Ashish Nehra to be awarded with Dronacharya Award on that night itself.
He has made a place for himself in the hearts of every Indian fan since his return. Who at times was remembered for leaking runs at crucial moments and for his injuries (fitness). They found a reason to curse him when Kapugedera launched him in to the stands of the last ball when only 3 runs were needed in the 2010 edition of World T20.
Only a few remembered his heroics at Karachi when he only conceded 3 runs in the last over to win the match against arch rivals Pakistan in 2004. Nehra repeated this at Rajkot, when he was defending 11 runs and conceded only 7 against Sri Lanka in 2009.
The reason he has earned more respect is the way he has come back. We have seen batsman making come back but we hardly see bowler making a comeback after turning 35, especially in India. At the age of 36 and some months, he has comeback with remarkable control.
In the 15 matches he has played since making a comeback Nehra has taken 18 wickets with an economy of 7.02 which is commendable.
Such has been the performance that Dhoni has not shied away from using him at the death or at any crunch situations.
Ashish Nehra has been a true source of inspiration for everyone who lie low at the domestic level and also proving that age is just a number. I remember him saying whenever I trained, I trained with the aim of playing for India again.
We may not see him again in team India’s jersey but he has given us enough reasons to BELIEVE
