CSK speedster Lungi Ngidi ruled out the tournament due to a side-strain injury.

The 25-year-old, who has 19 wickets in 12 T20s, was snapped up by KKR at the IPL 2019 auction for his base price of INR 20 lakh. KKR has already lost the young pace duo of Kamlesh Nagarkoti and Shivam Mavi to injury, and have called up Sandeep Warrier and KC Cariappa as their replacements.

Alongside Nortje, Lungi Ngidi will also miss the IPL having suffered a side strain in South Africa’s ODI series against Sri Lanka. Moosajee said: “Lungi felt discomfort while bowling during the last ODI against Sri Lanka at Newlands and immediately stopped bowling. Further scans revealed a Grade II muscle strain which will need up to four weeks of rest followed by a rehab programme leading up to the World Cup.”
