37-year-old Amit Mishra played his first match of the season on Saturday against Kolkata Knight Riders. The leg-spinner was instrumental in Delhi’s victory in this match played in Sharjah. He was seen in colour, he was scanned on Sunday only after being injured in this match.

His experience in the UAE’s slow pitches would have been very effective, but he injured his finger while catching the catch of Nitish Rana.
