Issue with ionDrag listener

Angular v 8.1.2 & ionic v 5.4.16

I am trying to listen for ion-item-sliding ionDrag event but the event never fires and when I go to check the listeners on my IonItemSliding the ionDrag is not listed. Any ideas?

The following template generates ionDrag events for me. Does it for you as well?

    <ion-item-sliding (ionDrag)="onDrag($event)">
            <ion-label>hello drag</ion-label>
        <ion-item-options slot="end">
            <ion-item-option>see me</ion-item-option>
