Articles about Ish Sodhi

A leg spinner born in India's Ludhiana but has become a regular in New Zealand's limited-overs cricket team, Ish Sodhi is an example of what perseverance and hard work can reap. Starting his career in Auckland, where the pitches are unfriendly toward spinners, Sodhi started receiving attention only after moving to the Northern Districts. Sodhi made his first-class debut for Northern Districts in 2012. His talent was clearly visible from the beginning, and the New Zealand selectors saw the potential he had. His first call-up to the national team came with not even a full first-class season under his belt. Sodhi made his international debut in a Test match against Bangladesh in 2013. His experience in red ball cricket hasn't always been a success. On the other hand, with the amount of control he has over his deliveries, Sodhi has made a name for himself in the T20 format. He is a talented bowler who can generate a lot of turn and fool the batsman with his flight. Sodhi's talents were at display in the 2016 World T20, and since then, he has been an essential part of the New Zealand T20I team.
