Sodhi confident of New Zealand’s readiness ahead of the Mirpur Test

Mirpur, Dec 5 : New Zealand leg-spinner Ish Sodhi expects his side to find their rhythm going into the second Test against Bangladesh.

However, Kiwi spinner Sodhi is optimistic about his side’s chances ahead of the second and final Test in Mirpur. He believes that the team will be able to get over this loss quickly, an ICC report said.

“The great success this team’s had over the past decade has been being able to park these sort of things quickly, whether its success or loss,” Sodhi said. “It is obviously tough to come out on the losing side in that first game in Sylhet, but I think as the Test progressed, we found a bit more rhythm.”

Sodhi had an underwhelming first Test, he took three wickets at an average of 48.33. But he feels that New Zealand can adapt.

“Obviously, I haven’t played Test cricket in a while, so it’s always going to be tough in these conditions,” he said. “It’s always going to be challenging, not playing a lot of Test cricket over a long period of time, but when you (New Zealand) come together, it is about how quickly you can adapt to the format,” Sodhi said.

The Black Caps bowler also thinks that the team can look to Bangladesh’s success in the first game for lessons.
