Nehra is part of the squad for the T20I se­ries against Aus­tralia but has not been able to find a place in the play­ing XI. His place in the team for the de­cider on Fri­day is also un­der doubt.

“When I came into the se­ries, I was pre­pared to play. When­ever Ashish Nehra is in the squad he is ready to be in the XI. In the last two years I have done that. When I came in this time, I straight­way told the cap­tain and coach about my plans and about my thought process and they re­spected my de­ci­sion,” he said.

“Look­ing at the way Bhu­vnesh­war Ku­mar and Jasprit Bum­rah played in the last five to six months, they are ready. Also, there are no World Cup or any big events in five-six months.

“The most im­por­tant thing is what the dressing room thinks. Every­body is say­ing that I can play for one more year.

“My opin­ion is that it is bet­ter to go when peo­ple are say­ing why than when they will say why not.”
