Proteas bowler, Lungi Ngidi is a big talking topic on social media right now. Not only because of his efforts at the ongoing Cricket World Cup but because tweeps think he’s got a new girlfriend.

The 27-year-old cricket star is one of the best bowlers on the planet and is a key part of the Proteas squad. Ngidi has already collected 15 wickets at the Cricket World Cup in India and is set to be in action again on Friday when the team faces up against Afghanistan. However, many South Africans have their eye on him for completely different reasons. Not only have a number of admirers popped up on the timeline, but social media detectives think he might have a new lady in his life.


Lungi Ngidi has been rumoured to be single for the past few years. The Proteas star has kept his love life under wraps but that looks as if it might have changed. A mystery lady has been spotted in the Proteas “WAG Box” (i.e. the VIP section reserved for the Wives and Girlfriends of the Proteas team) in the last few matches and she’s gotten plenty of attention. Not only from social media users who are mesmerised by her beauty but by the camera person too. Seriously, the timeline was flooded with people wondering why the camera kept panning to the same lady!

It didn’t take long for people to start piecing two and two together. One follower noticed that the mystery lady was sporting the number “22” on her nails. Just in case you’re not aware, that’s the same number Ngidi wears on the back of his Proteas shirt. It didn’t take long for more and more followers to start confirming that she is indeed Ngidi’s girlfriend, and judging from the comments, it looks as if he has great taste!

Despite a few sightings at Proteas matches, nobody has been able to pinpoint the identity of Lungi Ngidi’s girlfriend. Although many people have expressed their delight at seeing more African women in the WAG’s box, it does not seem as if the bowler’s new bae is a recognised public figure. The lead we have is this screenshot taken from the Proteas match against India where Ngidi was forced off through injury.

With the Proteas facing Afghanistan on Friday in their final group game, all eyes will be on Lungi Ngidi’s mystery lady to try and obtain even more clues as to who she could be!
