REVEALED: Why Ashish Nehra is still not on social-media despite being in huge demand

New Delhi: Former Indian cricketer VVS Laxman set the social-media on fire on Monday by sharing an interesting photograph of Ashish Nehra on Twitter.

Nehra, who is representing the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the ninth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), was seen resting wearing shades ahead of the match against Mumbai Indians.

Nehra was instrumental in Hyderabad's 85-run win over Rohit Sharma & Co, where he picked three wickets for just 15 runs.

In a chat with iplt20.com after the match, Nehra revealed why he had kept himself away from social-media despite several attempts 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.

Nehra added that he has no time for social media as he is too busy working on his fitness.

"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.

Apart from being a huge hit among the fans, the 37-year-old is also a favourite of former Indian cricketers.

Virender Sehwag being one of them, often mentions him as 'Nehra Ji' on Twitter whenever he bowls a good spell.
