Leg spinner Ish Sodhi has been called into train with the New Zealand team ahead of tomorrow's opening ODI against Australia at Eden Park.

Sodhi is a reasonable chance to play tomorrow, given the amount of turn Pakistan's part time leg spinner Azhar Ali got from the pitch in last Sunday's match.

At this stage Sodhi is only training with New Zealand for the opening match. However, if he plays and does well there is every chance he may stay with the group for the second and third games in the series at Wellington and Hamilton in the next week.

The New Zealand eleven is unlikely to be named until shortly before the match tomorrow.
