I enjoy mentoring Bumrah & Bhuvi, says Nehra
Ashish Nehra has contributed significantly to the Indian team’s recent success in the shortest format and the old warhorse says he is enjoying his role of a mentor in the fast bowling department.
India lost to New Zealand in the ongoing World T20 before turning it around against Pakistan and Nehra did his bit in both crucial games, taking a wicket each for 20 runs. “I am enjoying it. My job is very important to pass my experience which I gathered in last 16-17 years to Bumrah, Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar. I am sure I am helping them,” Nehra said on the eve of their match against Bangladesh.
Nehra said the mood in the Indian camp is good after a thumping win over old foe Pakistan. “Our mood is good. The kind of cricket we are playing in the last two to three months, we are all happy and satisfied.
Hopefully, we would like to take it forward even further the kind of fire power we have, if put to use, we will definitely win the game,” he said.
Nehra trolled for ‘using old Nokia phone’ comment
Ashish Nehra was trolled for his comments that he is still “using his old phone” and doesn’t have social media accounts like Facebook and Twitter. “You are asking this question to a wrong person because I am somebody who is not on social media. I am still using my old Nokia so I am not on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. I don’t read newspapers. Maybe I belong to the old school of thought,” Nehra told reporters when asked about the social media rivalry between India and Bangladesh ahead of their ICC World Twenty20 match here on Wednesday. No sooner Nehra made these comments, people began to troll him on Twitter with some teasing him for using an old phone.
