Ashish Nehra spent two seasons with Delhi Capitals (2009 and 2010). His debut season with the franchise was exceptional. He picked up wickets at regular intervals and played a huge part in many of their victorious matches. He finished the season with 19 wickets from just 13 games.

Although he didn’t play many matches for DC in 2010, he still had an impressive showing with the ball. He was an economical bowler who formed a crucial part of their bowling lineup.

That’s why many fans were baffled when DC didn’t do all they could to retain him for another season. He did return to Delhi for a single season in 2013, but failed to replicate his success and was released the following year.

He had a resurgence in his career after playing for the Chennai Super Kings and he even made a comeback in the Indian team. Nehra managed to remain consistent throughout his IPL career.

Delhi Capitals must definitely regret releasing him prematurely especially when they lacked a lot of bowling depth.
