Amit Mishra is a leg spinner who plays for Haryana in Ranji Trophy. Mishra, who bowls with elegance and accuracy, has a sharp spinning leg-break which is his stock delivery. It also has top spinners, and was initially called up to the Indian team for the Test series against the West Indies in 2002, but was not given a chance to play.

Thereafter he was not selected until 2007 when he was drafted in to play against the South African A team in 2007. Immediately he made an impact by taking 5 wickets in that game and he was soon on the national stage with some consistent performances.

Amit Mishra was selected in the Indian team to tour Australia in 2008 and made his debut in Mohali when Anil Kumble was injured. He took 5 wickets in the first innings – becoming only the sixth Indian to hit a fifty on debut. He added 2 more wickets in the second with 7 for the match. Mishra also played the next 2 matches and took 14 wickets in the series.

After the retirement of Anil Kumble, Mishra became the country’s premier leg-spinner and took 6 wickets in the 2-Test series against England in December 2008. When India toured New Zealand he was dropped from the team on what turned out to be a seam friendly wicket. No second spinner allowed in the team. Mishra bowled well in the second edition of the IPL without any luck as his team lost in the semi-finals to a ‘Gilli’ storm.

Amit Mishra last played for India in a Test match in 2011, when India were whitewashed 0-4 in England on their way to regaining the number one spot in Test cricket. However, he registered his highest Test score of 84 in the final Test. He was considered as the successor of Anil Kumble, but he could not maintain his reputation.

He played all the games in the 2014 T20 WC, in the first two matches Mishra took 2 for 22 against Pakistan and 2 for 18 against West Indies, these two performances earned him the Man of the Match award. However, he was not able to perform in pressure situations as he missed out on the semi-final and final, which India eventually lost to Sri Lanka.

However, after this the lack of opportunities started hampering his progress. While Mishra continues to make useful contributions, the presence of Ashwin and Jadeja has severely limited his opportunities at the highest level. The emergence of Jayant Yadav as an all-round option has seen Mishra become the fourth-choice spinner despite his longer shelf life than Ashwin.

Amit Mishra represented Deccan Chargers and later played for Sun Risers Hyderabad in the IPL. He has been the only IPL player to be a consistent performer in the league and take three hat-tricks. He had a great 2013 season as he took 21 wickets and played a key role in most of the Sun Risers’ victories. His strong performances in the IPL earned him an ODI call-back for the Champions Trophy in June and later for the tour of Zimbabwe in July 2013.

He performed brilliantly against Zimbabwe and equaled Javagal Srinath’s world record for most wickets in a bilateral ODI series. 18 wickets. He achieved the feat in just five matches as compared to Srinath’s seven. However, he played only one match in the 5 match ODI series against Australia in October/November 2013.Amit Mishra Profile - Cricket Player India | Stats, Records, Video

Africa in December 2013. He played a few games in the 2014 Asia Cup and impressed everyone. Being a part of the national team, he could not play in the entire Ranji season, but did well in the opportunities he got. After his impressive performance in 2013, Sunrisers Hyderabad bought him back for the 2014 edition.

He was selected in the Second XI of the 2014 ICC World T20 Cup by Cricinfo. Mishra was included in the squad for India’s 2016 tour of the West Indies. He took three wickets in one of the two T20I matches, taking a career-best 3/24. In New Zealand’s 2016–17 tour of India, he was included in the ODI squad.
