Welsh Fire extend Jimmy Neesham’s contract in their absence
Ngidi, who joined up with the squad ahead of their win against Southern Brave in Cardiff last week following South Africa’s tours of the Caribbean and Ireland, was due to replace Neesham ahead of Monday night’s fixture against Oval Invincibles, but will now return home instead. Neesham was due to play for Essex for the remainder of the Royal London Cup, but has agreed an extension and is available for the Invincibles fixture.
Both players are available for the fixture against the Invincibles. The Fire won their first two games of the competition, beating the Superchargers and the Brave, but were beaten in their first game without Bairstow, at home to Manchester Originals on Saturday.
