More in­jury con­cerns for SA as Ngidi limps off

Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - SPORTS -

South Africa’s in­jury list grew as Lungi Ngidi, the young pace bowler, limped off the field dur­ing their ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019 game against Bangladesh yes­ter­day at The Oval with ham­string trou­ble.

Ngidi, who went for 34 runs in his four overs, walked back to the dress­ing room at the con­clu­sion of the sev­enth over of the match.

It was later con­firmed that he had been ruled out of the match with a left ham­string in­jury.

It comes as an­other blow for Fran­cois du Plessis’ side, who have made no se­cret of their in­ten­tion to at­tack with pace.

South Africa were al­ready with­out Dale Steyn and Hashim Amla for the Bangladesh game.

Steyn is still re­cov­er­ing from a shoul­der in­jury, and while he is ex­pected to re­turn against In­dia, should Ngidi be forced to sit out of their next clash, against In­dia, the Proteas will be forced to con­tinue with a de­pleted pace at­tack.
