The India pacer is not on any of the social media sites and doesn’t mind it.
Therefore, when asked about the India-Bangladesh rivalry on the social media at the presser before the World T20 match between the two teams in Bengaluru, Nehra came up with a sarcastic reply.

“You are asking this question to a wrong person because I am somebody who is on social media. I am still using my old Nokia so I am not on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. I don’t read newspapers,” he said.
Hearing his reply, the people present at the presser burst into laughter.
Later, the BCCI requested former India opener Virender Sehwag, who is also a close friend of Nehra, if he can ask the bowler to join social media.
Sehwag also tweeted his reply saying he will try his best.
@BCCI I will try my best .
