Anrich Nortje says “Bowling just four overs with all-out raw pace is exciting” in IPL 2021. Delhi Capitals fast bowler Nortje holds Test cricket. Despite his success match in the shortest format of the game. Anrich Nortje has been one of the most consistent performers in the IPL. It was helped him lock down a spot in the national team as well.
Nortje’s smoldering pace and accuracy make him. Also, a tough proposition across every format. While he has figured out the code to succeed in T20 Cricket. Nortje is yet to completely find his stride in the longest format of the game. Nortje endured a tough Test debut for South Africa in 2019. Also, it’s going wicketless after bowling 25 overs in the Pune heat. Against a belligerent Indian gear for IPL. Recognizing the thrills and spills in abundance that the most limited format of the game brings. Nortje still accepts Test cricket is the leading pinnacle of the sport.
“T20 format has given opportunities to so many pacers. Bowling just four overs with all-out raw pace is exciting, but for me, the main format is still Test cricket. Red-ball cricket takes more and is the most difficult format as you have to be so consistent,” Anrich Nortje said.3

Anrich has taken 47 wickets across 12 Test matches since his debut. He fits well in a pace attack spearheaded by Kagiso Rabada. Also, with Lungi Ngidi by his side as well.
Lastly, Nortje noted how there was not much change in the approach adopted by bowlers. While contesting matches in different formats of the game. Nortje believes there is a slight change in line. When bowling with the white ball and the red ball. Also, the added factor of variable conditions in Test cricket.
