Cricket South Africa has recalled Multiply Titans fast bowler Lungi Ngidi to the Standard Bank Proteas squad for the first three Momentum One-Day Internationals against Sri Lanka and has also named fellow fast bowler, Anrich Nortje of the Warriors, as a new cap. All-rounder Wiaan Mulder of the bizhub Highveld Lions, who was added to the squad for the final ODI against Pakistan, has been retained.

“It is great to have Lungi back in the squad after a lengthy period on the sidelines caused by the injury he suffered in the white ball series in Australia last year,” commented CSA National Selection Panel (NSP) convener Linda Zondi. “His recent form for the Titans in the Momentum One-Day Cup has been most impressive and he is clearly match fit for international cricket again.
