    Ish Sodhi is love, Ish Sodhi is life

    The best spin bowler in NZ (and best wrist spinner in the world after Rashid), a world class #8, and a future NZ captain.

    This is basically a discussion (read: appreciation) thread for all things Sodhi

    I blame Dan.

    And Colin Munro.

    DV once complimented my beard. True story, and no one can take that away from me. Love you DV.

    He seems to be immature (Ish Sodhi) reminds me of Jeetan Patel 7-8 years ago.

    Patel would bowl each delivery and hope with all his heart it would take a wicket by magic and be thoroughly dissapointed when it didn't.

    Patel Mach III or whichever version it was that toured India that final time was less exciteable and didn't wet his pants if he beat the bat or went through the gate but missed the wickets.

    Ish Sodhi needs another 7-8 years of FC cricket and will only be ready for another shot at test cricket as a 30 year old. He has a young head on young shoulders.

    Ooops this is an appreciation thread. My bad.
    1) Ross is Boss.
    2) See point 1.

    Leading the charge against nuances being used in posts.

    Overrated XI M Bracewell, Burns, Rahane, Don Voges, Bairstow, Alecz Day, Donovan Grobelaar, Luke Ronchi, Faulkner, Dan Christian, Permaul

    I don't think Ish could grow a beard if he tried. Vettori taking pity on the youngster who was trying so hard, imo.

    Translated: Ish and I have been mates for a few years and I love him to bits, and he has oodles of talent and a very good cricketing mind, but he is pretty rubbish atm. Needs several years, give him some Grade Cricket in Aus and toughen him up. He is developing and maturing fast though

    I realised you might go for hyperbole, but it was singling Rashid out that I found weird given there are stacks of leggies better than him.

    I Think this is an accurate assessment.

    I think Australian grade cricket would be more helpful to him that County Cricket. The wickets are less conducive to spin and the batsman are good enough that they will force him to develop consistency or he will rapidly find that his Aussie captain won't give him a bowl.

    Jeets takes Div1 CC wickets. And even as a Warwicks man, I openly concede he's no more than 1.5x Mark Craig. The CC ain't the finishing school it once was.

    Agreed. What level of cricket have you played as you appear very knowledgeable.
