ICC World Twenty20: My job is to pass my experience to other seamers in Team India, says Ashish Nehra

New Delhi: Indian cricketer Ashish Nehra has been impressive since making his return to the national team after a gap of more than four years. His experience has proved handy thus far for India in the shortest format of the game.

But the old workhorse is playing a duel role in the team as he told PTI: "My job is very important to pass my experience which I gathered in last 16-17 years to Bumrah, Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar. I am sure I am helping them."

While talking about the mood in the Indian camp, ageing pacer said: “Our mood is good. The kind of cricket we are playing in the last two to three months, we are all happy and satisfied. Hopefully, we would like to take it forward even further the kind of fire power we have, if put to use, we will definitely win the game," he said.

India will play their third match of the on-going ICC World Twenty20 against neighbors Bangladesh on Wednesday in Bangalore.

Ahead of the match, Nehra, 36, asserted that there is no room for complacency in the tourney.

"This game, everyone knows, from day one - every game is a knockout game. There is a possibility that even if you win three out of four games, you still cannot qualify as the format is such that there is no room for complacency.

"Bangladesh have been playing goo cricket for the last two to three years. The way they have improved is quite amazing. We will not take Bangladesh lightly. We have to play to our potential if we have to beat them," added the left-arm seamer.
