The veteran Indian leg-spinner, Amit Mishra can be easily termed as a legendary cricketer in the Indian Premier League (IPL) as he has scalped 166 wickets in his career of 154 matches. He has played for almost every team he has played for in the T20 league. A one-time leading wicket-taker in IPL, Mishra is also the only bowler to scalp as many as 3 hat-tricks. He came close to taking his 4th hat-trick in IPL 2019 but missed out.

Despite being one of the league’s highest wicket-takers, Amit Mishra went unsold in IPL 2022 mega auction. Given that he is a leg-spinner and a wicket-taker, Mishra was expected to draw a bid.

The senior leg-spinner has often hogged the limelight for his tweets in the past few months. On Friday, Amit Mishra once again drew the limelight when he came up with a hilarious reaction to a Twitter user’s request to join Chennai Super Kings (CSK). Mishra, who is 39, trolled the Chennai-based franchise and wrote that he is still 2 years younger for it (joining CSK).

CSK have rode on the success of ‘senior players’ since 2018 and they have managed to win 2 IPL titles since their return after being banned for a couple of years. The Yellow Army is often called ‘Daddy’s Army by fans for having too many players above the age of 30. CSK’s strategy hasn’t worked this season and they are reeling at the 8th place in the points table as they have lost all the three matches they have played so far.
