What are people's thoughts on him ?
I read that during the Motera test, he picked up his 350th test wicket.
Is he one of the finest spinners the game has seen ? Yet, his
figures show a large discrepancy between his performance at home and abroad.
I think abroad, he averages about 36 compared to 25 at home.
I'm a little puzzled as to why India haven't drafted young MIshra
into their squad as the replacement(probably should within a year if not immediately) for Kumble.
I saw Mishra in action for India A against RSA in England this year.
This kid really gives it a rip - not since Warne circa 93 have I seen a wrist spinner turn it that much. Certainly not from the likes of Stuey McGill, Mustaq, Kaneria, Kumble and Hogg.
I can see Amit Mishra being a huge weapon for India if they pick him -- even on overseas tracks.
Unlike Kumble he has the turn and the variation to be dangerous anywhere.
