New Zealand’s Lockie Ferguson will be fit to play against the Men in Blue and will play a key role for the Black Caps in the semi-finals. Ahead of their match against India, Lockie admitted that his strength is short ball and would use it against the Indian stalwarts. “Throughout this whole competition, the short ball has been a weapon for every bowler. Having big square boundaries in England obviously helps,” said Ferguson.

Lockie also mentioned that he is fortunate to play against these Indian batsmen for a few years now and also admitted that they are on top of their game. However, he added that it is exciting for them as a team and sometimes you have to pinch yourself, playing the best in the World on a big stage. “As a little kid, you think of playing on the big stage against the big teams. It’s going to be good fun on Tuesday,” Lockie added.

Lockie Ferguson also praised the Indian opener, Rohit Sharma who has smashed five centuries in the tournament and has been exceptionally consistent throughout the World Cup. He said that Rohit is exceptional and has played on a lot of different wickets and scored some big runs. He also revealed that the team will make sure they have a plan to take him down as he’s the top run scorer and an important wicket to get early on.
