And the bowling pair also proved it again against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). Kagiso Rabada and Nortje mixed back-of-the length, cross-seam and yorker deliveries well and dismantled SunRisers Hyderabad with five wickets between them.

Performace of Rabada and Nortje in UAE – No one has a answer to DC pace merchants?

It’s no secret that Kagiso Rabada and Nortje enjoy the conditions in UAE, something which was key to Delhi Capital’s run to the final of IPL 2020. Together, in the UAE, they have picked up 55 wickets in 17 matches at a strike-rate of 14.3.

Notably, Nortje had not played a single match in the first half of the tournament as Shreyas Iyer’s injury forced them to strengthen their batting through their foreign quota. However, his return allowed DC to get their deadly duo back in the mix.

Experience of playing IPL game after long duration.

Nortje : It was good. Really, enjoyed it. It was good to be out with boys again. It’s been a long time since I played a game and to be out in Dubai where we started a year ago. It was nice

Rabada on his bowling mindset in death overs

Rabada : I had the same plan as you. To bowl hard lengths , may be change it with yorkers. It depends on what’s working and it also helped that they were few wickets down and we could just keep going on. It’s nice to be bowling again in IPL.

On picking wicktes regulary

Rabada : Generally, I don’t think about wickets. I try thinking what’s going to work and wickets are just by-product.
