AMIT MISHRA's profile

Equipped with the near-impossible task of replacing India's leading wicket-taker - Anil Kumble, Amit Mishra made a notable start to his Test career with his leg spin. Deputizing for the then injured Kumble against a visiting Australia side in 2008, his figures of 5-71 led India to one of two Test wins to lift the Border-Gavaskar trophy.

Five years before his first Test, Mishra debuted in ODIs in 2003 against South Africa. Later, recognition arrived after impressive displays in the Indian T20 League for his home city, Delhi and Hyderabad later. A well-disguised googly and a precision leg-break are Mishra's honed stock deliveries.

Following Kumble's retirement from Tests, Mishra became the first choice to partner Harbhajan whenever selectors opted for a two-pronged spin attack. Like his off-break partner, Mishra too is a handy tail-ender with the technical ability to become a good bowling all-rounder. Mishra has been provided with many opportunities to establish himself in both the shorter formats and the long ones, but unfortunately, he hasn't grabbed them at the big stages until the recent World T20 held in Bangladesh. Mishra managed to pick up 10 wickets in 6 matches in that tournament. He was even declared the man of the match in two consecutive matches for his brilliant bowling performance.
