Amit Mishra grabbed 4 wickets against WICB President XI. Mishra ended the 122-run stand for the second wicket by removing opening Rajendra Chandrika. After that, he picked up three wickets. Mishra showed that he can play a vital role in upcoming four-Test series in the Caribbean and later at home.

Mishra spoke about his performance and the track. “I am happy with my performance as bowling on this track was very difficult. To get my bowling rhythm back on a slow batting track is a good sign,” he said.

“We had a good practice game as we had batted well yesterday and also bowled well. I was trying to vary my speed and was looking to ‘confuse’ the batsmen. I didn’t want them to know at what speed I was bowling. I was also mixing up my deliveries; bowling straighter ones in between and turning the rest. I am very happy that on a slow wicket I could dismiss four batsmen,” Mishra added.

Mishra is happy working with Kohli . He finds him a positive aspect across the team. “Kohli is a positive person and he has created a similar positive environment within the team. He always supports me. There are no boundaries. Whenever I want to share something with him, I am free to express my opinion,” he told.

Mishra thinks the present experience is going to help him in upcoming Test series against West Indies. Anil Kumble’s guidance can create the difference, “Yes, the experience is going to help. I have played only one Test, but played more One-Day International (ODI) cricket in the Caribbean. Anil bhai is with us. His experience is going to matter a lot. We will utilize his experience and form a strategy together,” he said.
