Delhi Capital beat Rajasthan Royal by 13 runs in the 30th match of 13the edition of IPL 2020.
With the bowl, Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje have been excellent in IPL 2020 so far. While bowling to Jos Buttler in his first over, the African clocked 156.22 kmph and 155.21 kmph off consecutive deliveries.
However, Jos Buttler scooped the first one for four and second one beat the English keeper for pace and cleaned him up.
Anrich Nortje also record the third-fastest ball in IPL history- 154.74.
Anrich Nortje was signed as a replacement by DC for Chris Woakes, who pulled out of IPL 2020 despite having commanded a big price in the auction.
The 26-year-old has formed a lethal partnership with countryman Kagiso Rabada, and has been one of the team’s most consistent performers.
Captain Shreyas Iyer also appeared to injure his shoulder while diving in the field against RR, and didn’t play any further part in the game. The results of his scan will be announced tomorrow.
