Anrich Nortje COVID-19 Positive: Big shock to Delhi Capitals- The Delhi Capitals, who were among the contenders to win the 2021 season of the Indian Premier League (IPL), suffered another major setback. His leading fast bowler Enrich Nortje has been hit by the pandemic Kovid-19. Earlier, the team’s spin all-rounder Akshar Patel was hit by the corona virus, while the team’s regular captain Shreyas Iyer was forced out of the tournament due to injury.
According to ANI, the cricketer had come to India with a negative report and was hit by the Kovid-19 when he was tested during the quarantine period. He was in the compulsory quarantine of seven days after his arrival in India.
In the absence of Shreyas Iyer, the team is being captained by Rishabh Pant and defeated Chennai Super Kings in their first match of the tournament. The team had hoped that it would support Enrique in the next match, but found it difficult after being found Corona positive.
