Amit Mishra will be back in the Indian Premier League at age 40 after the Lucknow Super Giants secured his services for his base price of Rs 50 lakhs (Rs 5 million).
The veteran spinner last played in the IPL in 2021 for the Delhi Capitals. He has bagged 166 wickets in 154 IPL games.

LSG shared the first pictures of Mishra’s training session and captioned it, ‘Age is just a-myth for our Mishraji.’
