He missed the 2023 season because of an injury. Nortje came to Delhi’s camp after missing the first game against Punjab. He has not looked clinical since his return. He is struggling to hit that speed that makes him special.

He is also struggling to take wickets and in all four matches he played he leaked many runs. His economy also does not suit his status. Out of all the overs he bowled, he conceded the highest number of runs in the last over of the innings. In all four matches, captain Rishabh Pant gave Nortje the last over to bowl.
