Anrich Nortje Proteas Pacer Joins Delhi Capitals Squad

On Monday, Star South African pacer Anrich Nortje joined the Indian Premier League side Delhi Capitals' squad. Nortje joined the squad after Delhi played their first match of the tournament against the Punjab Kings (PBKS), where they faced a 4-wicket loss. The official X handle of the Delhi-based franchise shared a small glimpse of the 30-year-old joining the team. "Everything moved a little today," DC wrote on X.

Recapping Delhi's first game against Punjab, PBKS asked DC to bat after winning the toss. Fiery knocks on top by David Warner (29 in 21 balls, with three fours and two sixes) and Mitchell Marsh (20 in 12 balls, with two fours and two sixes) helped DC start well, but they lost their way. Rishabh Pant made 18 off 13 balls in his comeback game. DC was struggling at 147/8, but an explosive cameo from Abhishek Porel (32 in 10 balls, with four boundaries and two sixes) took DC to 174/9 in 20 overs.
