South African star player Anrich Nortje joined the squad of Delhi Capitals (DC) from the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Monday. Nortje joined the squad after Delhi played their first match of the tournament against the Punjab Kings (PBKS) where they suffered a four-wicket loss. The official X (formerly Twitter) handle of the Delhi-based franchise shared a small glimpse of the 30-year-old joining the team. β€œEverything moved a little Nortje today,” DC wrote on X.

PBKS summed up Delhi’s first match against Punjab and asked DC to bat after winning the toss. Fiery knocks at the top by David Warner (29 in 21 balls, with three fours and two sixes) and Mitchell Marsh (20 in 12 balls, with two fours and two sixes) helped DC get off to a good start, but they lost their way. Rishabh Pant made 18 off 13 balls in his comeback game. DC were struggling at 147/8, but an explosive cameo from Abhishek Porel (32 in 10 balls, with four boundaries and two sixes) took DC to 174/9 in 20 overs.

Arshdeep Singh (2/28) and Harshal Patel (2/43) were the best bowlers for PBKS.

Chasing 175, skipper Shikhar Dhawan (22 in 16 balls, with four boundaries) started well. Prabhsimran Singh also contributed a useful 26 in 17 balls with five fours. But it was the 67-run partnership for the fifth wicket between Sam Curran (63 in 47 balls, with six fours and a six) and Liam Livingstone (38* in 23 balls, with two fours and three sixes) that secured a four-four -and-six sealed. wicket win for PBKS.

Kuldeep Yadav (2/20) and Khaleel Ahmed (2/43) were the best bowlers for DC. Curran was named ‘Player of the Match’ for his knockout.
