Mumbai: Coming back into the side after picking up an injury, Sunrisers Hyderabad’s veteran seam bowler Ashish Nehra has had a dream run this season of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

On Sunday, Nehra weaved his magic with the ball and led Sunrisers to an 85-run win over defending champions Mumbai in Visakhapatnam.

Nehra ran through Mumbai's top-order with a flurry of wickets and finished with figures of 3/15 in his three-over spell to bag the Man of the Match award. Nehra now has picked five wickets in as many matches.

Sunrisers Hyderabad mentor VVS Laxman revealed the secret behind Nehra's match-winning performances. The former India batsman shared a photo on social media where Nehra was seen preparing for the big clash against MI.

In a freewheeling chat with iplt20.com, Nehra, who was one of India's standout performers at the recently-concluded World T20 missed, revealed why he is always trying to avoid to keep away from social media despite efforts made by his teammates to sign up for Twitter.

"VVS Laxman is on my case to make me come on social media, but I am not coming anytime soon. It consumes too much time," Nehra said.

"I am too busy trying to keep myself fit. We are playing a game every alternate day and so I don't have time for all this," Nehra said.

 

Quizzed if he was intending to take up coaching role in future, Nehra said he had never thought what he was going to do after retirement. "Many people have been asking me this question. I have always told them that I am still playing cricket. However, you never know one day maybe," Nehra hinted.
