Ish Sodhi is one of the very few bowlers keeping conventional leg-spin alive in today’s world of power hitting cricket. Sodhi has stuck to the basics despite the change in mindset, and prefers to give the ball some air and drift.
After shining in his school days, he was tipped as New Zealand’s next Daniel Vettori. However, with competition from the likes of Mitchell Santner and Todd Astle, the journey was never going to be easy. However, after series of impressive performances, Sodhi did manage to rise through the ranks to become New Zealand’s first choice spinner. Despite being one of the top picks in Big Bash League, Sodhi was sidelined at the IPL auctions in 2018, and was not a part of it in 2019 as well. He will now be having his eyes fixed on the 2019 World Cup.
