Possible Reason for Lungi Ngidi exclusion in CSK team
Meanwhile, one of the reasons Lungi Ngidi is not getting a place in the playing XI could be the limit of four overseas players. CSK has backed Shane Watson and Faf du Plessis to come good with the bat while Dwayne Bravo has returned after regaining his fitness.
The emergence of Sam Curran as a brilliant all-rounder playing for the first time for the franchise has even kept Imran Tahir out it seems along with Ngidi. It remains to be seen when do these two players get a chance to play in this season.
