The leg-spinner has been a part of the One-Day International (ODI) squad and got his opportunity on the tour to Zimbabwe — where he <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/cricket-articles/Amit-Mishra-rsquo-s-consistency-deserves-serious-consideration-from-the-national-selectors/29625" target="_blank">was very successful with 18 wickets in the five match series</a>.<br /> <br /> Speaking to <em>Times of India</em>, Mishra said, "I worked hard on my googlies and that's paying rich dividends. As a leg-spinner, it's important that I work on my body as well, which I have done rigorously during my stay at the NCA last year,"<br /> <br /> When asked about his plans for a return to Test cricket, Mishra said, "That will be a big challenge. But I have to keep performing all the time and stay in the selectors' radar if I have to make the Test team."<br /> <br /> As of now, Mishra is eyeing the<a href="/tags/Sunrisers-Hyderabad/post" target="_blank"> Sunrisers Hyderabad</a>’s Champions League T20 (CLT20) campaign even as his domestic side, Haryana is playing the <a href="/tags/Buchi-Babu-tournament/post" target="_blank">Buchi Babu tournament</a>. "I might play Buchi Babu if <a href="/tags/Haryana/post" target="_blank">Haryana</a> make the semifinals. If not, I will start preparing for the Champions League," Mishra said.
