Ashish Nehra a Jat Cricketer from Delhi

Ashish Nehra a Jat Cricketer of Nehra Gotra, born on April 29, 1979 in Delhi is an Indian cricketer (left-arm fast bowler) who has represented India at the international level since 1999. His father Diwan Singh, is a manager in a Delhi government corporation.His mother's name is Sumitra Nehra.He Joined a sports-conscious local school, Salvan Public school after his matriculation.During his graduation from Rajdhani college,he joined a reputed Delhi cricket club named Sonnet Club, which brought the best out of him. Nehra started playing first-class cricket for his hometown, Delhi, in the 1997/1998 season and made his Test debut against Sri Lanka at Colombo in 1999 and his ODI debut against Zimbabwe at Harare in 2001. On his Test debut, Nehra started out well, dismissing Marvan Atapattu early but then failed to pick up any more wickets. Similarly, he dismissed Alistair Campbell with only his 2nd ball in ODIs. He was also part of the Indian team's run at the 2003 World Cup in South Africa. It was there against England, that he got his career-best ODI figures of six for 23. His performance in the other matches in the World Cup were also noteworthy. He was also the only Indian bowler who had an economy rate of less than 6 runs an over during the finals of the World Cup when Australia racked up 359.
However inconsistency and successive back and ankle injuries have prevented him from cementing his place in the Indian team. His career statistics are better in ODI cricket than in Test cricket, but with 92 ODI wickets at an average of 31.07 his average is higher than all three of his main competitors for fast bowling places in the Indian team - Irfan Pathan, Zaheer Khan and Ajit Agarkar, who all have bowling averages below 30. The new crop of fast bowlers like Sreesanth, Munaf Patel and Ishant Sharma also add to the competition. Nevertheless, Nehra completed recovery from a back injury in March 2006 and is trying to make a comeback into the Indian team.
Nehra has often been criticised for his poor fielding, and is regarded as one of the worst in international cricket, particularly his apparent disinterest and casual attitude towards fielding. He hit the headlines with creditable showings in the second season of the IPL, and was recalled to the ODI squad for the tour of West Indies in June 2009 after 4 years due to an injury to Zaheer Khan. After than he never look back and perform outstanding in India-SL tour and now days at Champions trophy, he becomes the best bowler in current Indian team.
