Well after the retirement of Anil Kumble, Amith Mishra has been included as a full time spinner in the test side and I think he was quite impressive in the test match series against Australians. Unlike Anil Kumble (who is also a leg spinner), Amith Mishra can turn the ball to a mile which is a good sign for a leg spin bowler and I think he have a immense talent and a lot to prove in the test match cricket. I will not be surprised even if he is chosen to play in the One day International matches. What you think?

Amit Mishra is a decent bowler witha good line & length, flight & deviation.He does have all the qualities of becoming a very effective bowler. Wether he will be a success or not will depend on how he develops himself. He will certainly be a success in the upcoming series against England as English cricketers have been traditionally weak against leg spin bowling.

Well after the departure of Kumble from Internation cricket, its now Harbhajan who is considered the strike bowler for India. But there are part timer bowlers who handle the pressure well and rise to the occasion. There are the like of Yuvraj and Sehwag to are lethal with even their bowling on their day. But it can very curely backfire if they are out of sorts. So India very badly needs a specialist spinner. Well, its true that Amit Mishra has not played many games for India. But this is true even for Sachin Tendulkar. As long as a player doesn't get the needed exposure, how can we come to know about his caliber? So, I don't think it will be any wrong to give him another chance.

Well.....he is taken into Anil Kumble's shoes very well. But its too early to judge him. One thing is certain that he has got tremendous potential. Now the question is how consistent can he be? Replacing Anil Kumble is a small task. Jumbo has taken wickets all over the world and he is someone who does not spin the ball a lot while Mishra is totally different from him and he relies on spin on the ball to get the batsman out. So it will be interesting to see how well he can perform on the tracks that dont offer a great deal for the spinners. And I dont think he will be drafted to ODI squad anytime soon. Mishra relies on the flight and it can be costly in ODI's. But I'm not saying that he will never make the ODI team , the point is he will be given a chance there also but that will take some time.

yes he was impressive against the aussies. but it was his debut match so i guess aussies cldnt figure him out in that match he ill be effective in first few ODI's that he plays . but once he is figured out by the opponents it will be hard for him. i thnk he really needs to bring in more variation in his bowling and shld play loads of 20-20 matches .
