Ish Sodhi: A New Zealand Cricketer of India Origin

Ish Sodhi also called Inderbir Singh Sodhi is a New Zealand Cricketer representing the National Team of New Zealand. The cricketer is a tall leg spinner who bowls with the right arm leg-spin and bats with the right hand.

Ishi on Sunday evening has snuffed out India's challenge with his tight bowling admitting 17 runs in 4 overs.

Moreover, Sodhi took the prized wickets of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma to restrict the 2007 World T20 champions to a paltry 110 that was chased down by Blackcaps in 14.3 overs for the loss of two wickets.

Ishi Sodhi is 29 years old and he was born on October 31, 1992, in Ludhiana, Punjab of India. Ishi moved to New Zealand from India at the age of four with his parents and learned bowling under the instruction of Dipak Patel, Black Cap all-rounder at the time of his study hours while watching YouTube. He had sharpened his skills by watching videos of Anil Kumble and Shane Warne on their YouTube channel. Sodhi has learned a lot of lessons from those YouTube videos which appear to be much helpful for him.

Sodhi is also a part-time Rapper apart from being a cricketer. In his last match of T20 World Cup 2021 held in Dubai with India Sodhi proved himself as the critical and major cog in the New Zealand team. The Indian team will remember facing him in the match of India vs. New Zealand for his devastating bowling in the match.

The 19 wickets by Sodhi against India could be enough for any bowler to play against them in the same format. On his 29 Birthday, on Sunday 31 October his statistics of 2/17 were part of a stifling bowling display.
