New Delhi
South African pacer Anrich Nortje says during the 2010 Champions League T20 tournament he felt former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni didn’t know how to bat. Nortje currently plays for Delhi Capitals in the IPL and in 2010, when he was 16, he was called to bowl for the Chennai Super Kings nets.

Nortje said, ‘I was not that big, so I was not afraid of anyone. I remember I bowled to Dhoni in the nets. It didn’t look like he was batting honestly, he didn’t use his leg well on many deliveries.

Nortje, who made his ODI debut against Sri Lanka in 2019 and Test debut against India in the same year, said, “I won’t lie, I thought at that time Dhoni didn’t know how to bat.”

Nortje was instrumental in taking Delhi Capitals to the final in IPL 2020. He took 22 wickets in that season. In 2010, under Dhoni’s leadership, Chennai won the Champions League title by defeating the local team Warriors of South Africa by eight wickets.
