Nehra, who had an in­jury-prone ca­reer, al­ways strug­gled to play at a stretch for the na­tional team. But he al­ways made sure to make a come­back af­ter go­ing through the re­hab and play­ing in do­mes­tic cricket.

“For me, the true mea­sure of suc­cess is how you bounce back. Peo­ple say ‘you have had 11-12 surg­eries, so how can you con­tinue’. But the process of com­ing back has made me men­tally strong and I know it will help me pros­per in fu­ture as well. Char­ac­ter comes when you are not do­ing well and then you bounce back,” he said. Nehra, whose 6/23 against Eng­land at the 2003 World Cup was one of the best per­for­mances by an In­dian in the show­piece event, said he was happy play­ing at the do­mes­tic level.
