The 21-year-old made an unforgettable Test debut at Centurion two weeks ago, when he took figures of 1/51 and 6/39 - giving him a match analysis of 7/90 at his home ground.
Ngidi first starred for the Proteas in early 2017 when he made his T20I debut against Sri Lanka in the three-match T20 series.
The paceman picked up six wickets in his first two matches - with a man-of-the-match debut performance of 2/20 in Centurion and 4/19 in Johannesburg.
