The Delhi Capitals (DC) must be in a massive shock on losing Amit Mishra who has been delivering his leg-spin tricks for the franchise in the ongoing cash-rich T20 league, Indian Premier League (IPL 2020).
According to the reports, the player has already signed replacements with Jason Roy, Chris Woakes, Daniel Sams, and Anrich Nortje respectively. He was initially out of the playing XI of the IPL 2020 but was called back as Ravichandran Ashwin suffered an injury. Even after the off-spinner was able to get featured in the match, Mishra was prioritized over him.
The incident happened in DC’s last game played against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) as Mishra ended up injuring his finger.

An official of the DC conveyed the following written statements after the scans of the tendon injury were examined:
“The reports have come in and it is bad news. He will be unavailable for the rest of the season and we will need to look at a replacement. But the worst part is that he was looking in a great rhythm and was bowling really well.”
“His experience was something that was not just helping him in the middle on these UAE wickets, but also the young spinners in the team.”
