Lungi Ngidi ready to be unleashed on Sri Lanka

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.”

AB de Villiers pulls out of New Zealand series

Fuelling talk that he might call it a day in Test cricket, South African star batsman AB de Villiers pulled out of the upcoming series in New Zealand in March, although saying this was not a retirement call.

"Not yet. I'm not there yet," de Villiers was quoted as saying by ESPN on Tuesday. "The reason being that I just need to settle things in my head.
