The bowling abilities of South African pacer Anrich Nortje have rarely been in doubt. Nortje’s supreme bowling with lethal pace and impeccable line and length has always been a major concern for the opposition batting unit. The lanky fast bowler has managed to live up to the expectations in the inaugural edition of the SA20. Nortje is not only the highest wicket-taker of the competition, but the 29-year-old has been able to trouble the opposition batsmen with his blistering pace. It is now learned that Nortje has the most number of deliveries (96) over 145 kmph in the SA20.

A fan compared Enrich Nortje to former Australian fast bowler Brett Lee. “The Brett Lee of our generation. Never reduce the speed,” read the comment.

Some fans also pointed towards India’s Umran Malik and claimed that he will surpass Nortje in the Indian Premier League (IPL). “Umran Malik will beat him in IPL,” read the tweet.

One user said that Nortje is one of the great fast bowlers. The comment read, “For me Nortje is up there with some of the finest fast bowlers world cricket has ever seen in terms of skill.”

Was very impressed with Nortje’s bowling in SA20. The fan wrote, “A double wicket maiden from Nortje to end the semi-final.” Boss’s behavior. Pretoria Capital in the final.

Anrich Nortje has been in scintillating form in the SA20 league. With 18 wickets to his name, Nortje is the highest wicket-taker in the tournament. Nortje scripted sensational figures of 2/29 to guide his team Pretoria Capitals into the final of the SA20 on Wednesday. Nortje took a double wicket in the final over to seal a 29-run win over Paarl Royals.

Batting first, Pretoria Capitals posted a mammoth total of 153/8. Riley Rossouw emerged as his side’s top scorer with 56.

Paarl Royals suffered an early blow during the run chase after their opening batsman Jason Roy went back to the dressing room on the second ball of the innings. The David Miller-led side was eventually bowled out for only 124 runs.
