Interview with Amith Mishara
A confident and attacking cricketer Amit Mishra first caught the eye while tormenting the England Under19 tourists early in 2001 with big legbreaks and the odd fizzing googly. Mishra at his best on dry pitches rapidly became an integral cog in Haryana's Ranji Trophy side taking wickets by the bagful in typically Indian conditions. Mishra was called into a large Indian squad for the West Indies series at home in October 2002 but was disappointed not to be given a chance. The absence of several senior players after the World Cup led to another callup for the TVS Cup in Dhaka in April 2003.
