Mishra Getting ready for IPL 16
The Lucknow Super Giants are preparing for the upcoming season, and it appears that one of their key players, Amit Mishra, is going above and above in his training. The team recently shared a training video of him on Twitter, and it’s evident that the leg-spinner is working hard to be in form.
Mishra is seen in the story running through a grueling gym program, testing his limitations and sweating it out. The squad praised his tenacity and endurance, and it’s evident that he’s not going down without a fight. It’s easy to understand why the team titled the video #SuperWorkout. Mishra’s fitness routine is incredible, and it’s inspirational to see how committed he is to his profession.
The Skipper ties the knot with stunning Athiya.
The skipper, KL Rahul, tied the knot with Athiya Shetty on 23 January 2023. She is the daughter of Bollywood star Sunil Shetty. The ceremony was small and private. It happened in the sight of their closest friends and relatives. The married couple posted photos to Instagram.
The pair released a joint statement expressing their appreciation to the people. Suniel Shetty said that the wedding was over and that he had become a father-in-law. He and his son Aahaan handed sweets to members of the media. The actor said the reception would follow this year’s Indian Premier League.
According to a media agency from India, the pair will not enjoy a honeymoon due to work obligations. The stars never discussed their romance in the media. Still, they revealed it last year and have frequently been sighted together at gatherings and on their respective partners’ social media accounts.
The home ground is in a tough spot.
Veteran Indian batsman Gautam Gambhir criticised the Ekana pitch for being a challenging track for a T20 match. There were no sixers in a T20 match when the powerhouses of Indian batting were playing on it. Can you believe it?
Even the players in the team had similar views. After the match, Hardik Pandya came up to the media spokesperson and told him that he doesn’t mind challenging wickets. But, you have to see that T20 matches don’t work like that. He said that they have to discuss this with the ground staff and the pitch curator. The curator has to keep in mind that the crowds come for sixers, not for the batsmen to get puzzled at each ball. Pandya said that the curators have to prepare the pitch beforehand and not let anyone play at that specific track.
Gambhir is LSG’s mentor, and his concerns are valid. He wants the games played at the LSG’s home ground to be entertaining. And that is why, he didn’t held anything back when he was talking about the pitch.
Hopefully, the authorities will hear these concerns and a better pitch will be prepared in Ekana.
It’s not only about the athletic part of the game; players must also prepare mentally. Mishra’s ethic and drive to improve his skills demonstrate his devotion to the game. The squad is lucky to have him as a player constantly searching for ways to grow and get stronger.
The squad is guaranteed to significantly impact the competition with guys like him who are willing to give their all. Fans can expect a thrilling year as the Super Giants give it their best on the field.
