New Delhi: Indian leg-spinner Amit Mishra thinks that the recently concluded tour of Sri Lanka was a do-or-die series for him, according to a report.
“At this stage of my career, it was a sort of do-or-die series for me. If I wouldn't have performed, it would have been curtains for me.
“However, I had the confidence that I would deliver if given an opportunity. I wasn't overconfident but as I had worked very hard, I knew I would do well,” the diminutive tweaker told Times of India
Mishra, 32, scalped 15 wickets in the three-match Test series and played a pivotal role in helping India win a Test series in the Island after a gap of 22 years.
“The team management and Virat showed a lot of faith in my abilities. Virat wanted all of us to bowl with freedom. Whatever field I asked, whatever plans I had, he supported it. Whenever he felt like giving inputs, he told me. It helps a lot when you have a proper communication with the captain. Virat is very positive captain and has handled the team with great maturity,” stated Mishra.
