Vastavam web: New Zealand leg-spinner Ish Sodhi feels the key to make a comeback into the T20 series against India is to slow down the home team’s momentum.The Black Caps lost the series opener at New Delhi by 53 runs and face a must-win ituation tomorrow in the second Twenty20 game here at the SCA Stadium to keep the three-match series alive.”T20 cricket is all about momentum and I think they (India) put on a good partnership at the start (a record 158 runs between openers Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma) that set up the momentum for the rest of the game. I think that’s just about recognising those key moments and how we can slow their momentum down,” he said.
“Every game we play, we try to put on our best performance and try to win for our country and we’re going to approach the same way. We’ll come to the ground tomorrow, have a look at the wicket, distinguish how we’re going to play and hopefully combat the conditions well enough to come out on top. Being 0-1 down in a series is always tough, but it’s two games to come and we’ll have to give our best shot,” said the Indian-origin cricketer.”I’d like to think that I’ve improved a lot since the last time I came here. Generally, the driving force is trying to improve and I got 2 for 25 the other day. It’s been nice to spend extra time here with the A team, so the acclimatisation has been a lot easier since the last time I was here,” he said.
