After first ever win over New Zealand in T20 International at Ferozshah Kotla on Wednesday, Team India’s captain Virat Kohli said that he knows how hard Nehra has worked and he deserved this kind of farewell with the crowd cheering him.
“To have played 19 years is very hard for a fast bowler. I know how professional he’s been and how hard he’s worked. He deserved this kind of a farewell with the crowd cheering him. He can now spend time with his family, he’s got a beautiful family. We’ll stay in touch but we’ll miss him and I wish him all the best” he said at post match presentation.
Kohli also praised opener Shikhar Dhawan got his 52-ball 80 which was laced with 10 fours and two sixes.
“Shikhar’s one-day game is so good and he always wanted to convert that into T20 as well. I think his adaptability was spot-on today and he unleashed all the shots he had,” said Kohli.
