Can Amit Mishra bat his way to the World Cup?
Barely a month after Murali Kartik opened the batting for Railways, Amit Mishra batted at 7 for North Zone. Mishra's made 50 batting at 3 for India so not much of a surprise. Here, Mishra made 48, batted over 2 ½ hours, and partnered Uday Kaul for 36 overs, 124 runs. Seeing as he is captain, next time, he should promote himself to 3, if not open. With Gambhir, Tendu, Viru's love for injuries, and India’s with spinners who bat, Mishra could beat Rohit Sharma and Murali Vijay as the emergency opener replacement. And they can follow that up with Piyush Chawla as a pinch hitter.
