Delhi Capitals pacer Anrich Nortje found Covid positive

The Delhi Capitals, who were among the contenders to win the 2021 season of the Indian Premier League (IPL), suffered another major setback.

Delhi capitals leading fast bowler Anrich Nortje has been infected by the pandemic Covid-19. Earlier, the team’s spin all-rounder Axar Patel was hit by the coronavirus, while the team’s regular captain Shreyas Iyer was out of the tournament due to injury.

The South African cricketer had come to India with a negative report and was hit by the Covid-19 when he was tested during the quarantine period. He was in the compulsory quarantine of seven days after his arrival in India.

In the absence of Shreyas Iyer, the team is being captained by Rishabh Pant and defeated Chennai Super Kings in their first match of the tournament. The team had hoped that it would support Nortje in the next match but found it difficult after being found Corona positive.

If the regular captain is not there, it is really a big shock for the franchisees to stay out of the team like this. Let us know that Anrich Nortje joined the team last season as a replacement for Chris Woakes. He played a key role in leading the team to the final, taking 22 wickets in 16 matches. The Delhi fans were eager to see him bowling alongside Kagiso Rabada.

Delhi Capitals played their first match on 10 April against Chennai Super Kings without their leading fast bowler Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje and also won the match for his powerful batting performance and expected that Anrich and Rabada will join the team for next match but unfortunately, Anrich Nortje found Covid positive and he may do not play their next match
