Amit Mishra might be on a high, but he knows that he still has a long way to go. Right now, the legspinner, who was the Man of the Series against Zimbabwe, is planning for the Champions League, where he will play for Sunrisers Hyderababd.
“I might play Buchi Babu if Haryana make the semifinals. If not, I will start preparing for the Champions League,” Mishra said. He was one of the key performers for Sunrisers in the IPL, as they finished within the top-four and made it to the Champions League.
“Amit has done very well and his brand value too has been on the rise,” Rashid Khan, director Signatures Sport, said. The brand value of Amit had a lot to do with his show in the Zimbabwe series, where his googlies were almost unplayable.
“I worked hard on my googlies and that’s paying rich dividends. As a leg-spinner, it’s important that I work on my body as well, which I have done rigorously during my stay at the NCA last year,” Mishra said.
Now that Mishra has done well both in the T20s and One Day cricket, his aim will be to find a permanent spot in the Test side. “That will be a big challenge. But I have to keep performing all the time and stay in the selectors’ radar if I have to make the Test team,” he added.
