South African speedster Lungi Ngidi couldn’t hide his frustration when he was asked about his side’s result in the Zimbabwe match as well as his thoughts on the similar weather forecast against Bangladesh today.
South Africa’s opening game against Zimbabwe ended in a stalemate after the match had to be cancelled due to rain despite being on top of that game.
“To be honest, you control what you can, and the weather is one thing we don’t have a say in. We were eager to get out on the park in Hobart, and I think everyone who was there did their bit in trying to get a game to get going,” Ngidi said in the press conference in Sydney on Wednesday.
“Appreciative in that sense, but at the end of the day, we couldn’t control what happens with the rain.
“It does put us under a bit of pressure. It would have been nice to get a win.
“Yeah, tomorrow another forecast of rain. I think we’ve just got a bit of bad luck, to be honest, following us. But yeah, we’ve got no say in how the weather plays out. The only thing we can do is we’ll get here and we’ll be prepared to play,” he added.
Ngidi, meanwhile, was diplomatic when he was asked about using more spinners in the Bangladesh game.
“Well, I don’t know. The team hasn’t been selected yet. I guess we'll find out tomorrow,” he concluded.
