Veteran leg-spinner Amit Mishra of Delhi Capitals was ruled out of the current season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) due to a fracture in the right toe. Mishra suffered this injury during the match against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in Sharjah.
In this match played on October 3, this 37-year-old player was injured while trying to catch the catch of Nitish Rana. He completed his bowling despite pain and took the dangerous Shubman Gill wicket during this period.
"Mishra Anamika has been ruled out of the IPL tournament due to a finger fracture," said a source in the team who oversees Mishra's management work. Obviously, this is very disappointing news. He was an integral part of Delhi Capitals' plans. "Mishra played three matches this season. He took two for 25 against Sunrisers Hyderabad, one for 14 against KKR, while he did not have success against Chennai Superkings. He, however, spent just 23 runs in four overs in this match. Mishra is second in the list of highest wicket-takers in IPL. He has taken 16 wickets which is 10 less than the record of 17 wickets of Lasith Maliga.
