Vivo IPL 2021: South African and Delhi Capitals (DC) pacer Anrich Nortje hopes to build it on from here and get into the action straight away after coming out of the extended 10 days quarantine.
Nortje was the victim of a false Covid-positive case and was in isolation for 10 days. However, he rejoined the Delhi Capitals (DC) camp on Friday after testing covid-negative thrice.
“Ten Days in the room was quite a lot for me. It was nice to get out, run around and bowl a bit. I really enjoyed it and hopefully, I can build it up from here on,” said Nortje in a press release issued by his franchise on Saturday.
The speedster wants to bring out his best and do well in the conditions of the Wankhede Stadium.
Rishabh Pant who is leading Delhi Capitals (DC) in absence of Shreyas Iyer did a blunder in the last game against Rajasthan Royals (RR) as he decided not to finish four overs of Ravichandran Ashwin despite bowling with a good economy. Pant went with Tom Curran which cost them some extra runs and the game.
Speaking about the last game, Nortje said:
“There’s no team that’s got a bad team so every side is really competitive, and it can come off for anyone on any day. We are definitely not going to underestimate anyone and hopefully, we can bring our A-game,” Nortje said.
The South African speedster has missed a couple of games due to mandatory isolation but is hoping to come back strongly against Punjab Kings in the next game.
“The side is, unfortunately, missing Shreyas Iyer but we definitely have a good bunch of players in the squad right now and the bowling lineup is great as well.”
“It always about selecting the players for the respective conditions. We have got a good bowling unit and hopefully we can bring out the best in those given conditions.”
