Amit Mishra, who is one of the most successful bowlers in the history of IPL, unfortunately could not find any takers at the recently-concluded two-day auction.

Amit Mishra is a household name among cricket fans in India. The veteran spinner has played over 60 international matches for India and picked up more than 150 wickets. In IPL, too, he has enjoyed success. In 154 games, the leg spinner has 166 wickets. However, the 39-year-old failed to find a suitor at the recently held IPL 2022 Mega Auction, as he was one of the well-known names who were left unsold.

Mishra was of the Delhi Capitals squad last season; however, they did not go for him at this auction. At the end of the auction, Parth Jindal took to social media to thank the veteran spinner for his services to the franchise over the years. Jindal even added that Delhi would love to have Amit Mishra back when the time comes.

Upon getting the message, the 39-year-old thanked his former employer and added that he’d be there for Delhi whenever in need. He even said that he was not finished yet.
