Mishra said – leg-spinner needs captain’s confidence
38-year-old Amit Mishra further said that spinning the ball with the wrist is a difficult art which requires a lot of practice along with the captain in the bad moments of the match. In Indian cricket, wrist spinners were preferred over finger spinners, but after four years, the team is looking at finger spinners once again. Mishra believes that good captaincy is needed to develop a good leg spinner. Mishra said,
Any leg spinner needs a good captain. When runs are being scored against the bowler, he needs a captain who can boost his confidence. I mean a captain who can understand the mentality of the leg-spinner.
