Pace bowlers are often considered aggressive creatures by nature. They are known to express their emotions on the field – whether after getting a hammering from the batters or picking up the wickets. However, some pace bowlers like to stay calm on the field and don’t show much of their expressions. South African pacer Anrich Nortje is one of those pacers.
But, in the game between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Delhi Capitals, Anrich Nortje could not stop himself from expressing his emotions after picking Kane Williamson’s wicket. The South African fast-bowler celebrated wildly after sending the Kiwi skipper back to the dugout.
Earlier, Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper Kane Williamson invited Rishabh Pant & co. to bat first after winning the toss. The Orange Army had a fantastic start to the game courtesy of a wicket-maiden opening over from Bhuvneshwar Kumar. However, David Warner took the onus upon himself against his former side and scored brilliant unbeaten ninety-two runs to take Delhi Capitals to a massive total of 207/3 in 20 overs. He got able support from Rovman Powell, who scored unbeaten sixty-seven runs.
Anrich Nortje ends Kane Williamson’s struggles, does a wild celebration
Chasing such a big total, Kane Williamson and Abhishek Tripathi began the innings cautiously. However, young Sharma failed to stick around for long and got out of Khaleel Ahmed’s bowling.
Kane Williamson tried to stitch a partnership with Rahul Tripathi, but Anrich Nortje ended his knock with a brilliant delivery. It was the 2nd delivery of the 5th over, and Nortje bowled a pacy short of a good length delivery outside off. Kane Williamson tried to dab the delivery towards the third man but edged it to Rishabh Pant’s gloves. It was a painful knock from the skipper as he returned for four runs off eleven deliveries.
The returning Anrich Nortje got the vital wicket for his team, and he was pumped. He celebrated the wicket with a lot of aggression.
