Punjab Kings’ leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi has named three players whose qualities he would like to inherit. Bishnoi is a youthful spinner and is willing to bowl against huge stars. He has evolved as Punjab’s most outstanding bowler, taking 11 wickets in just seven games.
He stated that he would want to emulate the traits of Samuel Badree, Imran Tahir, and Amit Mishra in order to become a great spinner. Badree’s precision, Tahir’s zeal, and Mishra’s deception are all qualities Bishnoi wishes for. He also has some intriguing things to say about the trio.
“Badree’s consistency with the new ball was incredible, and as a leg-spin bowler, you want to mirror that. Similarly, one desires Tahir’s zeal to bowl at any moment, and Mishra bhai is evergreen,” said Ravi Bishnoi in a conversation with Cricket.com.
“Tahir is a wicket-taker, while Mishra is a conventional leg spinner with a conventional flight who deludes batsmen in the air. The trio has been progressing and performing for a prolonged period, and they have done exceptionally well while maintaining their class,” Bishnoi continued.
Containing the batters is my prime focus, believes Ravi Bishnoi
Bishnoi’s exploits in the IPL have been impressive. He has made a name for himself in just two seasons and has become PBKS’ prime go-to bowler. The leg-spinner has 23 wickets to his name in 21 IPL matches. Also, he has been excellent while containing the flow of runs as he has managed to concede at an economy of just 6.8.
He came to the limelight after his brilliant run in the U19 Cricket World Cup. Bishnoi emerged as a rising star as he finished the tournament with 17 wickets to his name in just six matches.
He believes that picking up wickets is not always possible, but containing the batters sounds more realistic. Bishnoi has an economy of just 6.00 in the IPL 2021 and opines that he loves to build pressure with dot balls. He claims that it will benefit the bowler from the other end to grab wickets and thus helping the team win the game.

He deserves a call into the New Zealand T20 series in November.
Obviously, you definitely want to get a wicket on each and every ball, but you also know that isn’t going to happen. However, keeping the batters in control by delivering a lot of dot balls and denying them the liberty to strike is a better option. Dot balls put a lot of pressure on batters, and your teammate on the other end may profit from your efforts, which is important to us since we want our side to win. I aim to bowl as many dot balls as possible to generate pressure,” Bishnoi explained.
