Series against India can set the ‘ball rolling’ in right direction for SA cricket: Lungi Ngidi.

Fast bowler Lungi Ngidi reckons the upcoming home series against India can set the “ball rolling” in the right direction for South African cricket, which has gone through a transition phase over the past few years while enduring upheavals.

Ngidi is a part of the South Africa Test squad announced for the three-match series against Virat Kohli’s men, starting December 26.

This will be South Africa’s first series in the 2021-23 World Test Championship (WTC) cycle and the fast bowler wants his team to start on a perfect note.

“A tour like this can really get the ball rolling in the right direction,” Ngidi told ESPN Cricinfo.

“The processes we are following now are putting us in a good position to compete in this Test Championship (cycle]). We’ve been speaking about a rebuilding phase, but I think it’s coming together.”
