They’re great assets to have: Rishabh Pant on Rabada and Nortje
The win for DC was set up in the first innings by Anrich Nortje’s 2/12, Kagiso Rabada’s three-wicket haul. The South African pair made breakthroughs throughout the game and didn’t let the SRH batsmen settle and halting them for a below-par total; Axar Patel bagged a couple of wickets as well.
