I am half-Pakistani, says Ish Sodhi

Ish Sodhi

After the conclusion of England tour of Pakistan 2022, the New Zealand tour of Pakistan 2022-23 is on the cards, with the Black Caps already arriving in the cricket-loving nation. The two teams will engage in two tests, being part of the World Test Championship 2023, followed by the three-match ODI series, with all matches being part of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has been taking all measures to make it another successful venture after hosting Australia and England, respectively. Ahead of the first test, which is due to begin on December 26th, the guests are seen marking statements worth making headlines. Spinner Ish Sodhi is one of them who opened up about his experience being in Pakistan.

Opening up about his close connection with Pakistan while talking to Geo Super, the Kiwi bowler said,

“My grandmother was born in the Punjab side of Pakistan, same as my mom’s father; he was as well. So pretty much half Pakistani, like so,”

Heaping praises on Pakistani culture, the bowler said,

“It’s really cool to be able to come back and connect with the culture here, the people as well have been really friendly and warm, and I’m trying to keep on developing my Punjabi.

He further said that he is trying to let his daughter learn India-Pakistan mutual language, Punjabi.

I’ve got a two-and-a-half-year-old daughter. I want her to learn some Punjabi, so I’ve got to keep on developing those skills. So, it’s good to be here.

The Ludhiana-born was asked to say something in Punjabi, to which he answered hilariously saying,

“Look, I’m trying hard, you know, I don’t want to make my mum upset by saying something’s wrong, but I’m like, I’m just going to keep on developing,” he concluded.
