Morne Morkel Profile

(written on Oct 18, 2015)

Morne Morkel is a gentle giant at a height of 6 ft 5 inch. Younger brother of South Africa all-rounder Albie Morkel, Morne can bowl at red hot speeds in the excess of 145 kmph. And he does so while extracting steep bounce to make life miserable for batsmen who love hitting the ball through the line.

Morne Morkel made his Test debut in 2006 aged 21 against India at Durban. With everything in his favour – pace, bounce and accuracy, Morne Morkel has become a vital player in the South African team. Along with Dale Steyn, he has forged a formidable opening attack for the Proteas.

Lower down the order, Morne Morkel who bats left-handed can contribute valuable runs either through his lusty hitting or can even build an innings using his tight looking technique.
