The Proteas drew first blood in the three-match Twenty20 series against England as they recorded a one-run victory in a nail-biting finish at Buffalo Park in East London on Wednesday night.

Right arm fast bowler and player-of-the-match Lungi Ngidi’s brilliance handed the Proteas victory in the last over.

Ngidi, who picked up three wickets for 30 in four overs, said that having a brilliance finish has to do with a player’s mental strength.

The 23-year-old Ngidi added that the fact that most England players are left-handed worked in his favour during the match.

Durban-born Ngidi also said that it will take a lot of determination for him to remain in the team as the Proteas are teeming with talented players.Report by Monwabisi Jimlongo
