Lockie Ferguson to Play for T20I Series Against England

The thumb of the fast bowler has healed and he is ready to play for the team

Right-arm fast bowler Lockie Ferguson is set to return to New Zealand’s playing XI to participate in the home series against England. The team is set to play warm-up matches ahead of the T20I series. Ferguson suffered a thumb injury during the team’s tour of Sri Lanka in August. He was dropped from the team for treatment and recovery.

‘The thumb has healed well and I'm looking forward to having a hit-out at Lincoln’, Ferguson said. ‘While it's obviously frustrating to be side-lined, it's actually been good to take some time to freshen up and be able to return with plenty of motivation and energy. It's the beginning of a really big summer of cricket and it's exciting to be starting it against a quality England side’.

The practice matches will begin on October 27 in Lincoln. It will be followed by the T20I series that will commence on November 1 in Christchurch. 

Lockie Ferguson is one of the best players during the ICC Cricket World Cup. He is the team’s leading wicket-taker who claimed 21 wickets at 19.47.
