Van der Dussen has played 40 games for Proteas across all formats, he is the only white Proteas cricketer to show his public support to the Black Lives Matter Movement so far.
Van der Dussen responded to being called out on social networks in regards to the Black Lives Matter by political analyst Max du Preez saying ”where do you stand?”
”Max, I support BLM, I’m against all murders… Physical, character, and cultural murder… I do not support violence or Marxism, therefore I refuse to be labelled by people. Viva Africa.”
Former Proteas batsman Hashim Amla also was in support of Ngidi bearing on his Instagram post.
“Many of us including myself have bore the brunt of these delusions and have crazy stories to tell which is why it makes even more admirable to see exceptional youngsters like @lungingidi doing his bit to represent us all, thank you brother and all those who stand up for causes in their own way publicly and privately, ” wrote Amla.
