Sharing a funny anecdote, South African fast bowler Anrik Nortje said in 2010 that Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni was mistaken as a novice batsman. This happened in the 2010 Champions League T20 tournament, in which Nortje was called to bowl for CSK. He was only 16 at the time. Earlier that season, under the captaincy of Dhoni, Chennai won the title by defeating the South African team by eight wickets in the final.

“I wasn’t old at the time, so I wasn’t afraid of anyone,” NorthJay said on The Grade Cricketer Podcast. I still remember Dhoni bowling on the net. He honestly didn’t seem to be batting. He didn’t use his foot well in many balls. But after meeting him, he talks very politely, knowing that he is such a good person.

Nortje is currently in the West Indies, where the team will play a five-match series against the hosts. Let’s just say that Nortje has been instrumental in bringing the Delhi Capitals to the final in IPL 2020. In that season he took 22 wickets. However, Delhi were unlucky and lost by five wickets in the final against Mumbai Indians. With this, the team’s dream of winning the IPL title for the first time remains a dream once again. The team’s performance under new captain Rishabh Pant has been outstanding this year and the team topped the point table before the league adjourned.
