'Spinners need to act fast'

A vital cog in Deccan Chargers’ wheels, leg-spinner Amit Mishra on Wednesay said spinners need to be more skillful and act fast to compete in the Twenty20 cricket.

Gearing up for the fifth edition of the Indian Premier League, Mishra, who emerged as the top wicket-taker for his side in the last edition, said: “Spinners have to do more hard work than speedsters in T20.

“Spinners need to have lot of skills and have to think fast and work on identifying the weaknesses of opponents. If you have skills you can prove yourself even on batsmen friendly wickets,” he said. “Spin bowlers always need to work on positive things and regulary need to improve their bowling skills.”

“For a spin bowler to prove himself, it is very important to be skillful. One needs to believe in himself and need to always try and improve,” Mishra said.

Asked about his (chances) on returning to the Indian Team, Mishra said he was trying to perform by playing well in the coming season.
