Visitors India had sealed a comprehensive 5-1 win over South Africa last year. <p></p> <p></p>The Proteas were missing some key players in skipper <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/faf-du-plessis/news/">Faf du Plessis</a>, <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/ab-de-villiers/news/">AB de Villiers</a> and <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/quinton-de-kock/news/">Quinton de Kock</a> during that series and Ngidi believes a full-strength team will be able to return the favour when they clash with India on June 5 at Southampton. "I believe we owe them one," the 23-year-old said. <p></p> <p></p>"I'm looking forward to India. When they came here, they had a good series against us. So, in my mind, I believe we owe them one. It would be a very exciting game for me. I'm sure it will be for all the guys as well. <p></p> <p></p>"They're a great team, don't take that away from them. But when they had a good series here, we were missing a few players. With those guys back, we'll see how it evens out a bit," added the 23-year-old. <p></p> <p></p><strong>ALSO READ: <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/south-africa-hopeful-kagiso-rabada-will-be-fit-for-world-cup-2019-842877">South Africa hopeful Kagiso Rabada will be fit for World Cup 2019</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p>South Africa have never won the World Cup and Ngidi said it would be a dream come true if he can help the side to victory. "Since I started this journey in international cricket, it's something that was always brought to my attention: that there's a World cup coming, and am I looking to be within that squad? <p></p> <p></p>"And now I'm here, and there's no turning back. Nothing but excitement going there, and it would be a dream come true to win that World Cup and bring it back to South African soil." <p></p> <p></p>South Africa will open their World Cup campaign against hosts England on May 30 at the Oval and Ngidi said they would want to send a statement to the hot favourites. <p></p> <p></p>"We are well-aware that they are probably under a lot more pressure than we are," said Ngidi, who has picked up 34 ODI wickets at an average of 21.64. <p></p> <p></p>"They are hosts, they're considered to be favourites and that's an advantage for us. We obviously want to win, and if we do, it would send a massive statement."
