Delhi Capitals at the final moment named Nortje as replacement for England allrounder Chris Woakes for IPL 2020. At Capitals, he will be part of a formidable fast-bowling set-up in his maiden season, joining fellow South African Kagiso Rabada, Ishant Sharma, Keemo Paul and Mohit Sharma, among others.

ODI Career


The 25-year-old made his ODI debut against Sri Lanka on 3 March 2019 at The Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg. The hosts won the toss and put the Lankans to bat first. They could manage only 231 as they were all out in 47 overs. Only Kusal Mendis scored a half-century. Debutant Nortje bowled well on the day and returned with figures of 7-1-33-1. South Africa chased down the total comfortably with 8 wickets in hand as Quinton de Kock (81) and Faf du Plessis (112*) shared a 136-run partnership.


In April 2019, he was named in South Africa's squad for the 2019 Cricket World Cup. However, on 7 May 2019, he was ruled out of the tournament with a hand injury and replaced by Chris Morris
