Delhi Capitals, below Shreyas Iyer, have made it to their first-ever closing within the Indian Premier League (IPL). On Sunday night, Delhi defeated SunRisers Hyderabad in Qualifier 2 of the continuing IPL on the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. Batting first, they posted 189/three after which restricted SRH on 172/eight of their stipulated 20 overs, thus successful the match by 17 runs.
One of many predominant causes behind Delhi’s stellar efficiency this season has been the deadly quick bowling duo of Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje who’ve rattled the opposition batters with their sheer tempo. Collectively, the Proteas duo shares 45 wickets between them.
Whereas Rabada sits on the high of the chart of main wicket-takers with 29 scalps from 16 matches, Nortje is seventh on the record with 20 wickets to his title in 15 matches.
Nortje, who now holds the document for bowling the quickest supply in IPL historical past, has constructed an enormous fan base in India courtesy his brilliance with the ball this season. Not too long ago, a Delhi Capitals fan wrote a letter to him, saying the South African pacer has made Delhi’s bowling “deadly” and that they will defend totals of 150.
“Hey Anrich, that is Kranti from DC Toli. Hope you might be doing good. You will have been superb this yr. The form of tempo you might be delivering is superb,” the fan wrote in his letter which was tweeted by the official deal with of Delhi Capitals.
“I have been supporting Delhi Capitals from previous 13 years and I by no means really feel safe by way of bowling however you made me imagine that DC’s bowling will be deadly and now even when we have to defend 150 I sit again and calm down as a result of my internal voice says ‘Nortje will deal with’,” he added.
“Nortje will deal with.” 😇
