DC vs LSG: Rishabh Pant Provides Update On Anrich Nortje’s Fitness



Anrich Nortje

Delhi Capitals (DC) captain Rishabh Pant provided an update on the much-awaited injury issue of South African pacer, Anrich Nortje, ahead of their game against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) on Sunday.

Nortje played just one match this season after coming off an injury but he bowled just 2.3 overs and had to be taken off after bowling two waist-high dangerous full-tosses.

He was subsequently dropped and the team management had decided to wait until he regains full fitness and can come back into the playing XI seamlessly. As per Pant, Nortje is recovering well and it won’t be far away before the Proteas pacer hops back onto the field.

He (Nortje) is coming off nicely after the practice, he didn’t play enough cricket before coming into the tournament but he’s getting there,” Pant said at the toss.

We don’t mind because we were in two minds. The wicket is looking on the slower side but this is a new wicket and no team has played on this wicket. We are always trying to improve the way we play. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, but you got to take the positives and move forward. We are playing with the same team,” he further added.
