Mumbai, April 17 (IANS) After a demoralising loss against Rajasthan Royals that saw their bowlers hand away the match from a position of strength, Delhi Capitals (DC) are likely to feature South African pace bowler Anrich Nortje in their match against Punjab Kings on Sunday.

Nortje, who has received the all-clear after suffering a Covid-19 positive scare, on Saturday said that Delhi Capitals don’t have much to worry about despite the loss.

“We have got a great bowling line-up as well. It’s just about picking the right team on the right wicket and conditions. We definitely have a lot of options in our bowling line-up, which is really nice to have and hopefully we can make the best of the conditions and the different players that we have got,” Nortje was quoted as saying in a DC press statement.

Nortje had to spend an extended period of time in quarantine due to what DC called ‘a false positive result for Covid-19’. However, the fast bowler rejoined the camp on Friday after testing negative thrice.

“Ten days in the room was quite a lot for me. It was nice to get out, run around and bowl a bit. I really enjoyed it and hopefully I can build it up from here on,” said Nortje.
