T20 World Cup 2021

by Wisden Staff 2 minute read

Watch: Speedster Anrich Nortje clean bowled big-hitter Andre Russell with a 92mph thunderbolt yorker during South Africa’s match with West Indies in the T20 World Cup.

Facing his first ball of the innings in the 18th over, Russell arrived with the intention of smashing some big hits to lift the West Indies total.

Despite a boundary off Dwaine Pretorius from his first delivery faced, Russell was dismissed for 5 by a special delivery from Nortje: the 92mph delivery moved in to the right hander to crash into the stumps as West Indies  lost their fifth wicket of the day.


Batting first, Windies managed 143-8 in their 20 overs, with Evin Lewis leading the charge with a 35-ball 56.
