In fact, the ball was also the fastest delivery of the match up until that point.

In dewy conditions, Nortje cam from around off as De Kock looked to sway away from the line of the ball. He though was a bit late as the ball took a thick outside edge and flew over the third man fence for a maximum.

The umpire had no option but to signal a no ball for height and gave a free hit.

In the 16th over, on the second ball, he bowled another over the hip full toss as the third umpire checked and gave another no ball and free hit, as he was forced to end his night with the ball.
