West Indies star batter Shimron Hetmyer thanked Delhi Capitals for giving him the opportunity to represent the side in the IPL 2021.
Delhi Capitals registered yet another victory this season after defeating Rajasthan Royals by 33 runs at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Saturday, Sept 25.
Last year, Delhi Capitals’ run to the IPL final was largely down to their brilliant pace attack comprising Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje leading from the front.
Anrich Nortje has returned to the Delhi Capitals side in the second phase of the Covid-struck IPL season, after missing the first phase due to an injury.
Anrich Nortje, who picked 22 wickets in 16 matches in his first-ever IPL season in 2020, played an instrumental role in helping Delhi Capitals reach their maiden IPL final.
Pollard's innings and an unbroken seventh-wicket partnership of 66 with Fabien Allen (19 not out) were critical in giving the Caribbean side a fighting chance after they were put in to bat.
At stumps South Africa was 128-4, a lead of 31 runs, and was able to celebrate a strong start to its first tour of the Caribbean in 11 years.
Delhi Capitals pacer Anrich Nortje said that tackling the dew will be one of the challenges at the Wankhede pitch in Mumbai.
Nortje has joined the team bubble on Friday after three Covid-19 negative test results.
Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada had arrived in Mumbai on April 6 and started their quarantine with a negative report.
In what comes as a huge blow for Delhi Capitals, pacer Anrich Nortje has tested positive for coronavirus.
