South Africa’s fast Lungi Ngidi said that Marco Yansen is a great bowler for the team and can create trouble for the batsmen of the other team. Ngidi said ahead of the T20 World Cup Super 12 match against Bangladesh at the SCG on Thursday that his team had faced India’s left-arm pacer Arshdeep Singh during the recently concluded white-ball series. The Proteas were given the confidence to go with a left-arm pacer in India, and their team is ready to take on a left-arm pacer from an opponent, such as Mustafizur Rahman from Bangladesh.
Ngidi responded with the following when asked about the advantages of having a left-arm fast bowler like Yansen: “I believe that Arshdeep Singh can surely pick up a lot of useful information from the way he bowled against us in India. I believe it is a stroke of good fortune that we also have a left-arm fast bowler (Yansen), since this provides us with an advantage in terms of preparing for the future.”
He said, “We are aware that Mustafizur Rahman, who plays for Bangladesh, bowls with his left arm, and I believe that the abilities that Marco Yansen possesses would be incredibly beneficial for us. You are aware that He offers a choice in the bowling section of our establishment. It is a significant boon for us.”
Ngidi mentioned that having Yansen on the team makes the work of the captain easier since it provides the team with more alternatives for the pace options.
