Delhi Capitals have signed fast bowler Anrich Nortje as replacement for Chris Woakes ahead of IPL 2020.

Nortje had been signed up Kolkata Knight Riders for the 2019 edition before a shoulder injury ruled him out of a maiden appearance in IPL. He subsequently suffered a freak thumb injury and missed the 2019 World Cup as well.

The 26-year-old has played six Tests for South Africa since making his debut in Pune last September. He becomes the second South African player in the Delhi Capitals set-up, after Kagiso Rabada, and is set to travel along with him in the first week of September on a chartered flight.
