Anrich Nortje, the 26-year-old South African pacer is making waves with his pace bowling in this year’s IPL 2020. Although he has been bowling consistently well, picking up 10 wickets with an amazing strike rate of 19, It was his performance against Rajasthan Royals that caught the eye. In an epic match-up against England’s Jos Buttler, Nortje didn’t let up on his pace constantly clocking speeds above 150kmph. He ultimately bowled Buttler and had the last laugh.Such was his performance that former cricketers praised the youngster on social media. Former West Indies bowler Ian Bishop tweeted.
Anrich Nortje just knocked Butler over with a 155kph rocket of a ball🔥🔥🔥🔥

However, former Pakistan cricketer Rashid Latif wasn’t amused with Bishop’s views. He said this is not the first time someone has clocked 150.

South African Anrich Nortje clocked three of the fastest deliveries in IPL history, the fastest being 156.2 kmph, against Rajasthan Royals (RR) at the Dubai International Stadium on Wednesday.
"The word floating around our team is freedom. You give people the freedom to go out there and be confident about it," former India wicket-keeper Vijay Dahiya said.
"From day one, Ponting has been emphasising with everyone that we give batsmen and bowlers that freedom to express themselves. By nature, Nortje is someone who goes out and bowls fast. There are no instructions to bowl fast. You cannot ask everyone to bowl fast. If you have genuine pace, then obviously you'd like to give that," said the former Delhi captain.
