Yea I watched Ngidi. Flakeman mentioned he was very average and gets panned all over the place in FC cricket...
ngidi looks the part he has been causing the Indian batsman problems. SA's seam bowling future seems to be in good hands

Ngidi certainly has a lot of promise, tall fast and bouncy. Has had more than his fair share of injury worries over the last 12 months, but there is a lot to like about him when fully fit.

Ngidi was very good wasn’t he, he’s only played 10 first class matches !!!!

I don’t mind when young FAST bowlers get picked without much stats backing them up it’s their potential that makes them special.

As the great Andy Roberts said when asked about fast bowlers “You got to pick them when they’re quick”

Ngidi, Rabada & Oliver will make a good pace attack once Morne, Dale & Vernon are done

HHM is laughing somewhere out there just waiting for his return to ZCF.. Ngidi looks like a real talent. Can't even hate on him.

Looking back at our own game we had absolutely no chance if they are doing this to bigger teams. We should humbly declined their invitation

Kohli might deny it, but even Indian fans aren't buying his constantly shifting lineups. He's been captain a little over 2 years and has dropped every player on his team at least once. That is shocking. You can get away with it on doctored pitches at home, but overseas you need to figure out your best combination and back those players. If he continues in this heedless manner he won't win many games in England and won't win any in Australia. SA has offered up decent pitches, but the English and Aussies might not be as friendly.

He'd be laughing about the Boxing day match because his 'love child' Phelukawayo did really well but doesn't mean shit till he does it against a decent side.

We didn't really discuss Ngidi but I'm sure he would have tried to make out we were against him. As I said in a previous post I supported Nidi's selection because he's young and quick that's when you pick fast bowlers. Just like us picking Mumba, Ngarava & Blessing which him was against for some reason.

He's probably crying about Bavuma getting dropped though, that would have cut deep lol
