New Delhi: Ashish Nehra is baffled and 'deeply hurt' after selectors chose to ignore the left-arm seamer for the first two ODIs against England. "I have submitted my fitness certificate before the ODI series in England. I was ignored when they even summoned RP Singh from a holiday. Now they have again ignored me," a visibly upset Nehra told PTI in an exclusive interview.
"I still don't know where I exactly went wrong after being India's highest wicket-taker in ODIs since my comeback in 2009. Also till Pakistan match where I fractured my finger, I didn't have any major injury issues," the 32-year-old said.
"Please check the records, which India bowler has bowled maximum number of overs at the death in last two years. You want me to prove my fitness but then I am not even good enough to be in any of the Challenger Trophy teams. Aapne Kerala se Srinagar tak sabko chance diya hai. Sirf Ashish Nehra hi nahin hain" (You have given chance to each and everyone from Kerala to Srinagar, how come I have become such a bad bowler in a space of few months), one couldn't miss the sarcasm in his voice.
