Ashish Nehra and Virat Kohli were part of T-20 World Cup. After suffering an injury in game against Kings XI Punjab Nehra is currently out of action. From quite some time photo of this duo, Ashish Nehra presenting an award to young Virat has become popular on social media. Here you can see old photo of Ashish Nehra & Virat Kohli and read real story behind the viral childhood photo Kohli.
Recently, Nehra responded about the viral image saying “I’m not on social media but that picture has become popular now because where ViratKohli is today. Otherwise it was just a picture on the wall and nobody would have admired it. Now that picture belongs to ViratKohli. This picture was taken some 13 years back. When I was playing in 2009-11 Virat was also playing. Then nobody talked about that picture. It’s all about media and social media.”
Nehra also shared his views aboutRishabh Pant, the Delhi born batsmen. He said “Pant is a potential no doubt. I have been watching him for the last five years and I always felt he has good potential. If he works hard, he can play for India. And it’s not just about Delhi.
He also said that many good batmen has come from various states of north India but Delhi has been successful in producing good batsmen and bowlers.
He also accepted that fast bowlers are being praised more and that he is very happy for it. He said that batsmen always gets more limelight as compared to the bowlers. He added that sometimes a bowler who gets four overs, 20 runs and one wicket in a match goes unnoticed.
Nehra further added that people are now noticing bowlers more may be due to the IPL. He said it to be good thing as its not only how good you bat but bowl too.
Nehra said that it is not good to judge a bowlers ability by the number of wicket he takes. He said “It’s very unfair but who makes it like this? You people! As a cricketer I’m happy as long as the captain and the team management know I’m doing the job. If you are picking two or three wickets, people are noticing more.
So many times it has happened someone finishes the IPL with 18 or 20 wickets but he is not even bowling well. “It’s very unfair but who makes it like this? You people! As a cricketer I’m happy as long as the captain and the team management know I’m doing the job. If you are picking two or three wickets, people are noticing more. So many times it has happened someone finishes the IPL with 18 or 20 wickets but he is not even bowling well.
He is picking all his wickets at long-off and long-on. But there are so many bowlers who bowled well but were not amongst the wickets so you guys didn’t even notice. You have to show the right picture. It doesn’t make a difference to me now. You asked me that question that’s why I am saying all this.”
Nehra also praised Bhuvneshwar Kumar and BarinderSran. Nehra said “If you bowl fast you are bound to get injured. It looks easy on TV when someone bowls a bouncer or a yorker but it’s a very physical thing.
Unfortunately in India when a pacer is injured, the media shows the wrong side of things. It is not as if only Indian pacers are getting injured. If you see worldwide, Brett Lee or Mitchell Johnson or Dale Steyn everybody gets injured.It’s because fast bowling isn’t easy.
Nehra said that in past 3 to 4 years when he did not play T20s and ODI, India tried many fast bowlers. According to him, this was wrong approach. Selectors should have recognized six pacers and should have gone with them.Nehra further added that we have talent but its how we look after them and manage them.
Nehra accepted that he does not like media attention. He said that he hardly talks to media. According to him media does not remember the word responsibility. He added that every bowler, every batsmen and every human being is different.
He said that media should convey the message to people correctly. He added that he has a feeling that media does not show right picture some times.
Nehra said that he knows that he gets injuries. It’s not that whenever he goes to ground he misses ten boundaries and drops four catches. People improves. He said there should not be any stamp that a particular guy bowls well and another does not.
With an example of Rishabh pant, Nehra said that Pant is good youngster but this does not mean that he will play 100 Tests for India. Again, there is a possibility that he may even play 150 Tests. He said that now everyone is talking about Ashish Nehra but there was a time when he was not playing and India was trying 25 fast bowlers and nobody talked about Ashish Nehra. He further added that this is not the first time when he is doing well he has done well in past in IPL and Champion League.
Talking about disappointments and happiness of 2003 ICC World Cup and 2011 ICC World Cup he said,”The 2003 loss was a disappointment but we lost to a better team. We lost two games in that World Cup and both of them were against Australia. And they were playing really well. Obviously I regret missing the 2011 final but the good thing is that at least I am happy that India won the World Cup. I had an on-field injury so I couldn’t help it.”
