With Amit Mishra turning out to be a match winner for Sunrisers Hyderabad, mentor Krishnamachari Srikkanth did not have any hesitation in declaring Mishra as the best spinner in the country presently.

Srikkanth, the former chairman of national selectors, said Mishra has taken the challenge from the front. “He loves to take challenges. This is his third hat-trick in  IPL and he has already won three Man of the Match  awards so far. That shows the big role he has played for our team,’’ he said.

The former Indian skipper is bowled over by his confidence in tight situations. “What I like about him that he is always confident while bowling in the tight situations,” he said.

Meanwhile, VVS Laxman (mentor, ambassador), said Mishra has shown a lot of character, both in his batting and bowling. “He has always been a  wicket-taking bowler. He has a lot of variation in his armour,” he said.
