Summary

  • By Niall Anderson at Chester-le-Street He was sorely missed against England, but Lockie Ferguson is set to make a timely return for the Black Caps’ semifinal at the Cricket World Cup.

  • His presence will be crucial for a Black Caps bowling attack which, without him, conceded their largest total of the World Cup against England at Chester-le-Street.
  • Black Caps bowler Lockie Ferguson is set to play in the World Cup semifinal.
