Ngidi Fit to Play in New Zealand Match

Ngidi is announced to be fit ahead of upcoming New Zealand match

South Africa fast bowler Lungi Ngidi was declared completely fit to play in their upcoming match against New Zealand. This comes after he suffered a hamstring injury in their previous match against Bangladesh on June 2 where the Tigers won by 21 runs.

“It’s been tough. Injuries are never nice, but with the support staff that I’ve had around me, it’s been pretty good, and I’ve been alright,” stated Ngidi in the official website of the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup. “It’s just been frustrating not being able to play.”

“I’ve just finished a fitness test today and passed that, so I’m match-fit ready. It’s 100 percent. That’s how the fitness test goes and if you’re not bowling at 100 percent then you’re not ready to play,” continued Ngidi.

Ngidi added that he thinks there are weaknesses in New Zealand’s team that South Africa could take advantage of to win the game.

“I don’t think their middle and lower order have been tested enough,” said Ngidi. “They have got most of their runs at the top of the order, so if we can get one or two maybe we can test them. I think then you could be looking at a different situation with their batting.”

South Africa will be playing against New Zealand today at Edgbaston Cricket Ground. The Proteas currently have +110 odds to win the match while the Black Caps have -128 odds.
