Veteran Indian pacer Ashish Nehra took the cricket fraternity surprisingly because he had recently decided to retire from international cricket.
The most discussed the players in the Indian dressing room, Nehra was recently inducted into India’s Twenty20 squad for the T20 series against Australia.
On Tuesday, the Delhi High Court allowed Indian cricketer Ashish Nehra to request a corporate box for his family and friends to watch his last limited overs match in Ferozeshah Kotla Ground in New Delhi on November 1.
Although the bench of Justice S Ravindra Bhatt and Sanjeev Sachdev expressed bribe about the request, he approved the demand for relief from the cricketer by the administrator appointed by the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) court.
It has been said that Ashish Nehra will end his international cricket career on 1st November as India will play New Zealand in an international T20 match.
The court also allowed the application moved by the Administrator, former Supreme Court judge Vikramajit Sen, seeking issuance of two complimentary passes each to the cricketing body’s employees, staff, selectors, coaches, match commentators as well as sportspersons associated with it, totaling 308.
It allowed issuing complimentary passes in the form of specific circumstances that there was no elected body of DDCA and the administrator’s request was justified.
The application, filed through advocate Pradeep Chhindra, sought issuance of these passes for the India-New Zealand match on November 1 and an India-Srilanka test match from November 6-11.
