Anrich Nortje and Migael Pretorius are signed by Pretoria Capitals.

Anrich Nortje and uncapped Migael Pretorius, two South African pacemen, have been signed by Pretoria Capitals for the 2017 CSA T20 League, the team announced on Saturday. JSW Group, co-owners of the Indian Premier League’s Delhi Capitals, owns the team (IPL).

Before the CSA T20 League auction, each of the six franchises is allowed to sign five players—three from abroad, one South African international cricketer, and one uncapped South African player—to create their 17-man roster.

Up to this point, the Durban franchise, owned by the RPSG Group, which also purchased the Lucknow Super Giants franchise, MI Cape Town, owned by Reliance Industries, which manages the Mumbai Indians, a five-time IPL champion team, and Paarl Royals, managed by the owners of the Rajasthan Royals, have all already made their pre-signed player lists public.

“Anrich Nortje played a crucial role in the development and success of Delhi Capitals. He was therefore a no-brainer for us when we chose to increase our cricketing presence in his nation. I am confident that Anrich will bring to the Pretoria Capitals the same fiery performances and composure off the field that we have seen him exhibit at DC.”

“I’d also want to extend a warm welcome to Migael Pretorius, a member of our Capitals family who has a stellar domestic track record. The fact that Delhi Capitals has expanded beyond Delhi is indeed a great moment for us. Without a sure, South Africa is one of the most sports-loving countries in the world, and we can’t wait to enthrall the fans there with our passionate brand of cricket “Parth Jindal, owner of the Pretoria Capitals and a joint owner of the Delhi Capitals, stated.

Nortje, a member of the South Africa side since 2019, has played 30 games for the Delhi Capitals over the past three seasons, taking 43 wickets at an average of 21.30 and an economy rate of 8.06 runs per over.

Pretorius, 27, plays for Knights in South Africa’s domestic circuit and has 54 T20 wickets to his credit. Even during the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2021 season, he represented Jamaica Tallawahs.

Although he was included in South Africa’s Test squad for a series against Sri Lanka in December 2020 and in the T20I squad for a three-match series against Pakistan in March 2021, the right-arm bowler has yet to make his international debut.

The UAE’s International League T20 (ILT20), which will also take place in January 2023, will directly compete with South Africa’s T20 League throughout those two months. When Bangladesh’s Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) and Australia’s Big Bash League (BBL) are on, both leagues will be in play.
