South Africa's new fast bowling T20 cap, Lungi Ngidi, hopes to add another milestone to his fast-moving cricket career in the upcoming KFC T20 International series against Sri Lanka starting at SuperSport Park in Centurion on Friday. The 20-year-old has had a dream run over the last couple of months after making his debut for the Multiply Titans in the CSA T20 Challenge this season- he was named as the bowler of the match in the six-run victory in the final - and hopes to take his performances onto the international stage.
“I wouldn’t say that I expected it sooner, but the journey has been amazing for me, everything has unfolded quickly,” he said ahead of the squad’s first training session on Tuesday. “I have put in a few performances here and there but the coaches were always reminding me that consistency is the best thing. That is what I tried to do, one step at a time, I tried to be as consistent as possible, and the performances came naturally with playing well.”
