IPL 2019: One veteran who can be the impact player for each team
With just a little more than 2 months to go for the 12th edition of the IPL, there is a lot of excitement in the air, especially after the announcement that the entire tournament will happen in India despite the general elections during that time.
However, to avoid the clash and also to keep players fresh before the World Cup, BCCI has decided to prepone the IPL. This year's edition will now start on March 23, just days after India's home series against Australia.
IPL has always usually been a launching pad for a lot of cricketers around the globe and this season will no different. This year will again see many of first-timers plying their trade.
But the league, as we all know, is not just about the youngsters, as we saw last season with Chennai Super Kings winning the title with a relatively old squad which drew mixed opinions in the aftermath of the 2018 IPL auctions.
Here in this article, we will see one veteran from each team who can have a massive impact in this IPL.
#8 Delhi Capitals - Amit Mishra
Amit Mishra has to be one of the underrated players to have ever played the Indian Premier League. The 36-year-old has played in every IPL till date and is the second highest wicket-taker behind Lasith Malinga, but has never been given due credit that he should have been.
With the Delhi Capitals top order comprising of youngsters, he is the senior-most member of the squad and looks set to play a massive role in the team's bid to clinch their maiden IPL title. He has played in 136 matches playing for 3 different teams, taking 146 wickets in the process.
Amit Mishra has gone off the radar in the past couple of seasons and is surely not in the scheme of things for a national call-up anymore, but is still a dangerous spinner - one to watch out for.
