Nortje, playing his second match for Delhi this season, bowled the top eight fastest deliveries of IPL 2021, three of which crossed the 150 kmph mark. The 27-year-old South African finished with excellent figures of 2 for 12 in his 4 overs.

Nortje hit 151.71 kmph, 151.37 kmph, 150.21 kmph, 149.97 kmph, 149.29 kmph, 149.15 kmph and 148.76 kmph. The fiery magic prompted former India cricketer and commentator Aakash Chopra to demand a speeding ticket for Nortje. Chopra tweeted, “Challan for over-speeding #SeriousSpace.”
Nortje and Rabada were brilliant with the ball as they pulled out extra bounce and pace from a relatively short and slow wicket to demolish SRH’s top order.
