Pretoria Capitals sign Nortje and Pretorius for CSA T20 League

"I believe Anrich will bring to Pretoria Capitals the same kind of fiery performances and off-field calmness we've seen him display at DC."

Pretoria Capitals have signed South African pace duo of Anrich Nortje and Migael Pretorius for the inaugural edition of Cricket South Africa's T20 League, the franchise announced on Saturday (August 13).

Parth Jindal, the owner of Pretoria Capitals, said: "Anrich Nortje has been an integral part of the growth and success of Delhi Capitals. So when we decided to expand our cricketing footprint to his country, he was always going to be an automatic choice for us. 

"I believe Anrich will bring to Pretoria Capitals the same kind of fiery performances and off-field calmness we've seen him display at DC. I'd also like to welcome Migael Pretorius, who boasts of an impressive domestic track record, to our Capitals family.

"It is indeed a proud moment for us, as Delhi Capitals is now beyond Delhi. South Africa is no doubt one of the world's biggest sports loving nations, and we can't wait to enthrall the fans there with our passionate brand of cricket."

Nortje, who has donned the South African colours since 2019, has played 30 games for DC over three seasons, with 43 wickets to his name. The 27-year-old Pretorius, on the other hand, has taken over 50 domestic T20 wickets, and is yet to make his international debut.

The inaugural edition of the T20 league in South Africa will comprise six franchises, and a world-class line up of domestic and international cricketers. The tournament will be played in January-February next year.
