From a young age, Ferguson exhibited a passion for cricket, and his natural athletic abilities were evident. He quickly rose through the ranks of junior cricket in New Zealand and caught the attention of selectors with his raw pace and aggressive style of bowling. Talking about numbers, Lockie has 147 wickets in his 131 T20 games at an economy of 7.84, which is commendable looking at the tough overs he bowls.

Lockie’s defining characteristic as a bowler is his ability to consistently bowl at speeds exceeding 140-145 kmh. His raw pace combined with his aggressive mindset make him a formidable opponent for any batsman. He possesses a smooth and fluid bowling action, allowing him to generate considerable bounce and movement off the pitch. His ability to swing the ball late and consistently hit the yorker length make him a lethal bowler in the death overs.

After being around the Kolkata Knight Riders’ setup for a couple of years, Lockie now looks forward to expanding his horizon at Major League Cricket this year with the Los Angeles Knight Riders and would be eager to go out and bowl his thunderbolts and knock over the opposition batters.
