Cricketers go through a lot to reach where they are now. It isn't as easy as it looks. The struggle is real and it gets more transparent to fans when the players themselves share their inspiring stories.
Chennai Super Kings (CSK) pacer Lungi Ngidi, who rose to fame in recent India and South Africa Test series, revealed that he used to sell peanuts on the side of the road.
"Fun fact: There was a stage my brothers and I used to sit and sell peanuts on the side of the road ????????," he wrote.
The pacer was signed by Chennai franchise for the IPL. They got the quality pacer for Rs 50 lakh.
The 21-year-old Proteas seamer left the CSK camp to travel home after the death of his father. His father, Jerome Ngidi passed away on Friday morning in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal with reports suggesting he had suffered complications from a recent back operation.
Luckily, his father had watched him taking 6/39 against India earlier this summer.
