Delhi: Nov 19, 2012


Pacer Ashish Nehra’s future in the longer format for home state Delhi now appears in serious doubts after the bowler pulled out after bowling just six overs on the first day of the Ranji Trophy match against Baroda.


Nehra suffered a hamstring injury and didn’t return to play for the most part of the match on Saturday.


It has been learnt that senior DDCA officials will have a chat with the state selection committee as to whether the 33-year-old should be considered for future selection in the longer format, reported PTI.


A senior DDCA official was quoted by NDTV as saying, “We can’t say that his first-class career is over as he can always go and play as a pro for other states but we have to seriously think that whether his (Nehra’s) pick and choose policy is beneficial for Delhi cricket. He is a sincere boy but he is so injury prone that we are worried.”


There were talks that Nehra might get an MRI done, but coach Vijay Dahiya said, “He underwent a few regimes with our physio and it was understood that he doesn’t require an MRI scan. But we didn’t want to risk him so we kept him out of action.. It’s better to keep him away now than be sorry later.”


Dahiya also said that in case Delhi requires Nehra to bat, he would.
