Ish Sodhi will leave Northern Districts after ten seasons playing for his home side. He is set to join Canterbury for the 2022/23 domestic season. Sodhi’s relocation to Canterbury comes with his young family’s best interests in mind, having moved to Christchurch with them.

The leg-spinner made his Plunket Shield debut in 2012–13 and has since represented Northern Districts in 59 first-class matches, 39 list-A matches, and 65 T20s.

Sodhi was instrumental in Northern Brave Super Smash win last season, carving his place in cricket history with the most economical stats in domestic T20 history of 2-5 from four overs against the Auckland Aces.

Ish Sodhi led Northern District in his farewell game for the club, leading a team of seven debutants in the Plunket Shield after Covid-19 and availability ravaged the roster.

Sodhi departs with the full support of Northern Districts, who recognise the efforts he and his family have made in order to commute from Christchurch to train and play.

As he bids farewell, he expressed gratitude for his team, “It’s been a really difficult decision, I’ve spent ten years of my life with ND, but the last couple of years have been tough with Covid and with a young family and the time required to travel to play it is the right decision for right now.”

“I’ve made some incredible friendships at Northern Districts and leave with some great memories.”

Despite his sadness at saying goodbye to the Northern Districts family, Sodhi is grateful for the opportunity offered and the basis it provides for the next stage of his career.

“When I first moved to ND I was 19-years-old, and I probably struggled in social situations but ND gave me the environment to be a great cricketer and I learnt to be more comfortable off the field as well.”

“So, while I leave with a heavy heart, I think the fact I can make such a bold choice now speaks volumes to what I have learnt during my time at ND,” Sodhi further added.

Graeme Aldridge, Head Coach of Northern Districts’ Men’s Programme, also praised Sohdi’s dedicated throughout his tenure.

“Ish has been a massive part of our association for a number of years, the enthusiasm he brings when he turns out for ND is infectious and it spreads through the group.”
