South African fast bowlers Enrich Nortje He is one of the fastest bowlers in the world because he is capable of hitting a constant speed of 150 km per hour. The fast bowler has taken three wickets so far in the ongoing five-match T20I series against India and is one of the key bowlers in the South African attack. The visitors are currently taking a 2-1 lead in the five-match series and a day before the fourth T20I in Rajkot, Nortje talked about the comparison with the Indian speedster. Imran Malik And how his focus is on winning the fastest ball-throwing competition for the team.
“Yeah, at this point, I don’t care who the fastest (bowler) is. When I’m training, when I’m not playing, you definitely think about how you can be faster than the way you’re training, whatever you’re doing. Behind my mind, this will be something I will keep striving for, but it is not something I think about. When I go on the field, “Nortje said during a press conference on Thursday.
“Imran Malik is a very good bowler, a very fast bowler. He has shown what he can do. If he is fast then very good for him, if I am fast then very good for me. I don’t think so. We are at the stage where we are competing. The fastest ball is about winning the game and trying to do your part, “he added.
The 28-year-old also said that he is not 100% yet but is slowly getting there. He also described how his recovery period would help him move forward and stay in good shape.
“No. Not yet. Still working on it, trying to figure out one or two things. And physically, just get there. It’s about growing slowly and slowly building it. Not 100% where I want to be. I’m probably rating myself from where I was last year, at the end of the IPL, the start of the World Cup so I’m still trying to get there. Nortje said.
“It’s difficult because some things are limited, some bowling is limited. You can’t always go out and do 8-9 overs a day, so it’s very limited. But so far, it’s a good challenge. This is something that will help me in the future. If there is any friction or injury ahead, there are some important things to get out of it, “he added.
When asked about the strength of the Proteas bench, Nortje said: “I think everyone is in good form, everyone is either playing in the IPL or training hard at home. It’s nice to have people who are part of the team. Benches are really doing better than the boys on the pitch at some point. It’ll be great to see when they get a chance, and how they go. In mind لنگی نگیڈی Haven’t played in a long time, I’m excited to see if they get a chance and how they go whenever they get a chance. “
