In an era after Steyn and Morkel when Rabada and Ngidi took over, South African bowling reserves looked much more threatening after the entry of Anrich Nortje. He was knocking the door since a while but injuries kept him at bay. 
Tall, and Lanky fast bowler who mostly bowls wicket to wicket has troubled the batsman not only with his steady line and length but also with some furious pace. He constantly bowls at 140 and is very good at bowling Yorkers as well. He first came into notice when he toured India with South Africa A team. He, however, was given a national call up after a great 2018-19 domestic season. He made his ODI debut when Sri Lanka toured India just before the ICC U-19 World Cup.
