Profile

Lockie Ferguson, a genuine fast bowler known for his high speeds and tall frame, has the potential to be a match-winner for New Zealand. Despite being injury-prone like many other fast bowlers, his determination to maintain his pace is commendable. Ferguson made his mark in the 2014-15 first-class season with 21 wickets, followed by 31 wickets in the next season, catching the selectors’ attention. He earned his spot in the New Zealand ODI side in December 2016, replacing Adam Milne due to an injury.

A T20I debut in early 2017 was followed by sporadic appearances for New Zealand. Despite inconsistent numbers, Ferguson’s impact potential is undeniable. The New Zealand team values his skills and plans to manage him carefully for long-term success. Ferguson’s raw speed occasionally leads to line struggles, making him a threat for batsmen weak against short balls. His attacking style can result in a higher economy rate. On good batting tracks, errant lines from Ferguson may lead to conceding runs.

Lockie Ferguson’s development as a fast bowler coincided with a profitable contract with the now-defunct Rising Pune Supergiant in 2017. Despite limited appearances, his impressive speed and skillful variations caught the attention of IPL scouts. In 2019, Kolkata Knight Riders outbid Kings XI Punjab to acquire him for 1.6 crore rupees. Ferguson played for Kolkata Knight Riders from 2019 to 2021 before being signed by the Gujarat Titans for IPL 2022, where he took 12 wickets. Prior to IPL 2023, Ferguson was exchanged by the Gujarat Titans back to his former team, Kolkata Knight Riders.
