Vastavam web: Mitchell Santner today said fellow New Zealand spinner Ish Sodhi has reaped the benefits of bowling a “superb” length in the current T20 series against India.While leggie Sodhi has only featured in the T20s, Santer has done a decent job throughout the tour.Sodhi, who returned with figures of two for 25 and one for 25 in the first two games, has made life tough for the Indian batsmen who have found it difficult to put him away.
About his own record against former India captain MS Dhoni, whom he had kept quiet in the last T20 at Rajkot Santner said, “He is a very good player of spin and seam bowling. I guess at the start I try to keep it simple. I try to pull the length up and tuck him up a little bit. Also, I try to read the batsman as much as possible.”On New Zealand coming up short in crucial matches, like the World Cup final against Australia in 2015 and in the recent ODI series, he said, “We like to treat this is like another game. It is better than being two-nil down. We are excited about it.””India have played very good cricket for a long time now in your conditions. They are tough to beat. We have taken it to the decider in the last two series. Both teams will want to win (tomorrow).
“They played well in Kanpur under pressure as well (to win the ODI series). We will turn up tomorrow and put up a good performance and try to take the series.””Yeah I mean it. We pride ourselves on our fielding. In the heat of the battle, we don t want to be dropping catches.
