Mishra returned match figures of 3 for 152 in the first Test in Rajkot and admitted he was not upto the mark in the series opener against England. <p></p> <p></p>"I wouldn't say I bowled very well. It did take time for me to get my rhythm, especially since I was playing a Test after a long time. I was on the bench for two Tests in the West Indies and then sat out for the New Zealand Test series. Also, I was coming off from the ODI series so the transition from ODIs to Tests did take some time. But, I believe there was improvement in my bowling in the second innings and I bowled better," added the veteran Mishra. <p></p> <p></p>The Indian team management have already released <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/Gautam-Gambhir" target="_blank">Gautam Gambhir</a> and he will also be playing for Delhi against Assam in Waynad. The Delhi squad also consists of <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/Shikhar-Dhawan" target="_blank">Shikhar Dhawan</a>, who will look to prove his fitness and return to the Test squad as the third opener. The third test in Mohali begins November 26.
