Nortje, taking part in his second match for Delhi this season, bowled the highest eight quickest balls of IPL 2021 out of which three crossed the 150kmph mark. The 27-year-old South African completed with excellent figures of two for 12 from his four overs.

Nortje clocked 151.71kmph, 151.37kmph, 150.21kmph, 149.97kmph, 149.29kmph, 149.15kmph and 148.76kmph. The fiery spell prompted former India cricketer and commentator Aakash Chopra to demand for a dashing ticket for Nortje. “Over-speeding ka challan kato #SeriousPace,” Chopra tweeted.
Nortje and Rabada have been terrific with the ball as they extracted additional bounce and tempo from the comparatively low and sluggish wicket to dismantle SRH top-order.
