It takes even more experience out of the side but given the form the lanky quick has shown, Ngidi deserves a chance anyway. In pursuit of 303, South Africa folded for 124, of which opener Lizelle Lee made 73 at a strike-rate of almost 100.

After receiving a few customer complaints regarding overheating of the ThinkPad X1 Carbon range, Lenovo has begun a voluntary recall of its fifth iteration of the laptop.

Chinese multinational technology company Lenovo has issued a statement warning users that certain elements of their devices may be faulty.
