Expert Answer:

dsp2 type of hybridization is seen specially in case of transition metal ions.
The orbitals involved in this type of Hybridization are dx2- y2, s and two p.
 The four dsp2 hybrid orbitals adopt square planar geometry
The complex ion [Ni(CN)4]2- involves dsp2 Hybridization
If the compound undergoes reaction with strong ligand than dsp2, dsp3,d2sp3 hybridization occurs.

If the compound undergoes reaction with weak ligand than sp3, sp3d, sp3d2 hybridization occurs
