Hyderabad: Having become IPL's most hat-trick and wicket-taker, Sunrisers Hyderabad leg spinner Amit Mishra now wants to learn some more tricks of his trade from Pakistan leg-spin great and current Delhi Daredevils bowling mentor Mushtaq Ahmed.
Mishra said he spoke to Mushtaq briefly in New Delhi on April 12 during his side's IPL match against Delhi Daredevils but he wants to talk to him at length when the two sides meet again on May 4 here.
"I spoke to him (Mushtaq) for a bit when we played against the Daredevils in Delhi. I am looking forward to talking to him at length about my bowling and leg-spin bowling in general when DD come to play in Hyderabad. I just want to ask him about my flaws and how I can improve as a bowler," said Mishra who now have three hat-tricks in the IPL.
Mishra is the current IPL season's Purple Cap wearer as he is the highest wicket-taker (11 scalps) and he also has equalled Lasith Malinga of Mumbai Indians in taking most number of wickets in IPL overall (85 scalps).
Asked what was the secret behind his success in the IPL, considering that T20 is a difficult format for leg-spinners, Mishra said, "My only secret is that I always bowl to my strength. I know and everyone tells me that I am a wicket-taking bowler.
"So, I work more on my wicket-taking skills. I believe getting wickets is the best way to put the pressure on the batting side in the T20 format," he said.
