Ricky Ponting, the head coach of the Delhi Capitals (Delhi Capitals), is hopeful that South African fast bowler Enrique Norkia Anrich Nortje will be fit to play in the Indian Premier League (IPL) soon and will be available for selection in the team’s match against the Lucknow Super Giants on April 7. Due to back and hip injuries, Norkia has been out of competitive cricket since the T20 World Cup in November last year.
“Norkia bowled to her full potential during practise this (Saturday) morning,” Ponting said in a virtual press conference after their 14-run loss to Gujarat Titans on Saturday night. I believe he will be allowed to play from Cricket South Africa after completing four or five more spells to his full potential.
“We only have a few days until our next match,” he said, “so hopefully he will be available for selection.”
“Warner has arrived in Mumbai,” Ponting said when asked about the availability of Australia’s David Warner and Mitchell Marsh. Michelle Marsh has been in Mumbai for a few days and has been placed under quarantine. His segregation will be finished the next day.
“We’re hoping he (Marsh) will be available for the match (against Kolkata Knight Riders) on April 10,” said the team. After recovering from a hip injury sustained in Pakistan, he will be ready for selection after a few practise sessions.
