A T20I debut also followed in early 2017 although he hasn't played since his maiden game. Ferguson has featured in a few 50-over games for New Zealand and although his numbers are a bit patchy, there is no doubt regarding the impact he can provide on his day. New Zealand think tank does value his enigmatic skills and are planning to handle him with care so that he can become a long term weapon of the limited-overs team.
IPL through the years
Lockie Ferguson's growth as an express fast bowler co-incided with a lucrative contract with the now defunct Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS), who secured him with a base price contact of Rupees fifty lakhs in 2017. Despite having played only a handful of matches, his raw pace and clever variations saw him impress the IPL scouts. Coming to the 2019 auctions, Kolkata Knight Riders warded off a spirited challenge from Kings XI Punjab to land their target at a cost of 1.6 crore rupees.
World Cup 2019 - What to expect
Lockie Ferguson's most lethal weapon is his bouncer and with his ability to bowl consistently over the 150-kph mark, the speedster can prove to be fatal against oppositions who are not used to such speeds. If skipper Williamson uses him wisely during the Round Robin stages, he might prove to be a trump card for the Kiwis. Although his stint in IPL 2019 wasn't a great one, you can expect Ferguson to rise to the occasion during the showpiece event.
Sometimes Ferguson struggles with his lines but with the amount of speed he generates, that's bound to happen. Players who struggle against the short ball need to be wary of Ferguson. He mostly bowls attacking lines, hence the fast bowler's economy rate is on the higher side. On good batting wickets, if Ferguson doesn't hit the right lines and lengths on English wickets, he might concede plenty.
