South Africa fast bowler Lungi Ngidi has been ruled out of the ODI series against Sri Lanka.
The newbie, who made a fabulous debut in the T20s has suffered an abdominal injury which was sustained during the 3rd T20 against Sri Lanka.
South Africa team manager Mohammed Moosajee said,
Lungi landed awkwardly on his left hip while fielding during the third T20 international against Sri Lanka. Subsequent scans confirmed an abdominal muscle wall tear which will rule him out for three to four weeks.
This comes as an unfortunate news as he was performing exceptionally in the T20 series.
He won the Man of the Match in the 1st T20 for his figures of 2/12 in 2 overs, followed by figures of 4/19 in his 2nd T20.
