Cricket: Mishra looks forward to big IPL role

Middle-order Kenyan batsman Tanmay Mishra believes it is every
cricketer’s dream to play in the lucrative Indian Premier League which
continues to attract the big-name stars.



The India-born, 25-year-old Mishra will become the
first Kenyan player to feature in the league when he joins the
Hyderabad-based franchise, Deccan Chargers for the 2012 season next
month.



“The IPL gives opportunities for players like me to
believe they can make it. It is one of the most exciting leagues in the
world, and I want to be part of it,” said Mishra, who will one of the
five uncapped cricketers to join the side.



“I look forward to sharing rooms with legends such
as Kumar Sangakkara and Dale Steyn. I hope other young players will get
inspired by what I can do with the Chargers,” he added.



Although he has been signed as an Indian player,
Mishra, who has lived in Kenya since childhood said he will continue to
turn out for his country in international cricket.



“I am happy to be associated with the young Kenyan
team, which is now re-building itself. We have a lot of natural talent
in the team which is capable of reclaiming the top Associate place in
the next two years.”



Mishra has been included in the national squad
preparing for next month’s Twenty20 World Cup qualifying tournament in
the United Arab Emirates.












The winners and runner-up at the 16-team tournament will
qualify for the Twenty20 World Cup in Sri Lanka in September and
October.
