Lungi Ngidi will miss the Pakistan test tour to South Africa. The Protea’s fast bowler has been sidelined for three months after sustaining a knee injury during the T20 International against Australia last Sunday.

Team doctor Mohammed Moosajee says further investigations at home have revealed a significant ligament injury to his right knee after he fell while fielding.

The injury also means he won’t be able to play for the Tshwane Spartans in the Mzansi Super League. They will name his replacement later on Friday.
