Former cricketer Ashish Nehra’s wife Rushma admitted in hospital
Former Indian cricketer Ashish Nehra’s wife Rushma Nehra has been admitted to the hospital after feeling unwell.
The reasons for her admission is still unknown but Rushma broke the news by sharing a picture of herself in the hospital.
Posted on Instagram, the veteran cricketer’s wife can be seen walking in a white gown inside the hospital helped by an attendant. She also captioned the picture and wrote, “Small steps in the right direction. Life is not always what we see on Instagram. Just wanted to share an honest moment of struggle”.
Cricketer Yuvraj Singh’s wife Hazel Keech who visited Rushma also posed a picture with her inside the hospital, lying in the bed. She too posted the picture on Instagram and captioned it as, “Rest is best! Giving this lovely @rd.nehra healing hugs.”
Rushma later reposted the picture with Hazel and also replied to it, “Thanks for the laughs though they were painful,” filling it with smilies and hashtags.
Ashish and Rushma met each other during the England tour of 2002 and since then had been dating each other before tying the knot on March 23, 2009. They have two children, daughter Ariana and son Aarush.
Nehra who made his international debut in the Test-series against Sri Lanka in 1999 retired from the game in 2017 after playing over 150 matches for the national team. In a career plagued by frequent injuries and fitness issues, Nehra still was one of India’s best bowler when available. He has apparently undergone 12 surgeries during his playing career. His record of six wickets for 23 runs against England in the 2003 World Cup remains his bowling figures in any one-day match.
He also is the second oldest player after Rahul Dravid to represent India in the T-20 internationals. Fondly called ‘Nehraji‘ by his teammates, the 39-year-old returned to the cricket scene in April 2018 as a bowling coach for Indian Premier League franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore.
