Having grown up idolizing the magician leg-spinner, Shane Warne, it's no wonder Mishra likes to have a go at the batsmen and be on the attack most of the times. He is a large hearted cricketer who is not afraid to flight the ball to trap the batsman by luring him to go for quick runs. Mishra is at his best on dry, Indian pitches and can rake havoc on these turners.

The first time one really witnessed Amit Mishra's ball turning talent was when he bamboozled the England U-19 team who travelled to India in 2001. His huge leg-breaks and the effervescent googly in that tour made him a recognized force in the Indian domestic circuit and he became a regular stay of the Haryana Ranji Trophy team.

Great amount of talent backed by some splendid performances for his state side earned Mishra a place in the Indian squad for the home series against the West Indies in 2002 but he didn't feature in the playing eleven. Another opportunity went begging for this leggie when he was picked for the TVS Cup in 2003 without making his international debut.

The faith of the national selectors eluded Mishra since then, until he managed to once again emerge in their sight in 2007 with a striking run of 46 wickets from 11 first class games. The perseverance paid off and the leggie from Haryana got a Test call-up for the 2008 Border Gavaskar Trophy at home.

Mishra, this time made it to the playing eleven in the Mohali Test as Anil Kumble pulled out due to injury. The youngster grabbed the opportunity with both hands and humbled the Australians with his viciously turning deliveries. He lived the dream of any aspiring cricketer as he became the sixth Indian to claim a fifer in his very first Test innings.

Mishra, rose into the limelight and became a household name even before making his international debut while playing for the Delhi Daredevils team in the inaugural season of the IPL. He became the first bowler to bag a hat-trick in the tournament.

Now, with the old warhorse Anil Kumble having bid goodbye to international cricket, team India lacks the presence of a genuine leg-spinner. This is Mishra's best chance to make himself a certainty in the team by keeping his focus strong and maintaining the consistency at the domestic level.
