Amit Mishra has been a common name in the Indian T20 League, with his extraordinary bowling exploits. Notably, he is the third-highest wicket-taker in the history of the tournament after Dwayne Bravo and Lasith Malinga. The leg-spinner went unsold in the mega auction ahead of the Indian T20 League 2022. But this has not hampered the cricketerâ€™s interest in the cash-rich league. He has been active on social media since the beginning of the tournament, commenting on the on-field ongoings.
He has grabbed attention mainly for his witty comments. On the 8th of April, he made a humorous comment on Chennaiâ€™s strategy to go for players on the â€˜wrong side of 30â€™ rather than younger players.
Chennai is often termed the â€˜Dadâ€™s Armyâ€™, and this year also the average age of the squad is over 30 justifying the name. Amit Mishra highlighted this fact when the fans requested him to join the Chennai team. His reply left the netizens in splits and fans appreciated the leg spinnerâ€™s sense of humor. A fan tagged Amit Mishra and wrote on Twitter â€“ â€œSir, pls come to Chennai.â€ To this Mishra hilariously replied – â€œSorry mate, Still two years younger for it.â€
