BIO: Morne Morkel is a cricketer who plays Test and limited overs cricket for South Africa. He is a right-arm fast bowler and a useful lower order left-handed batsman. In 2012, Morne took 25 wickets in 16 matches and collected the Purple Cap for the best wicket-taking bowler. Morkel began his first class career with a match for Easterns against the touring West Indians. He claimed his first top-class wicket by dismissing Ramnaresh Sarwan, caught by Daryll Cullinan for 72, and improved to four no-balls in six overs. In the 2004–05 season, Morkel played three more first class matches. Morkel earned the call up to the first-tier Titans for the final game of the SuperSport Series season, and took three for 90 on the first day, which he improved to five for 122 before their opponents Western Province Boland declared. He made his ODI debut playing for an Africa XI side again their Asian counterparts and took 3 wickets. In the following game he opened the bowling with his brother Albie Morkel and this was the first time in ODI history that two brothers have done so. Morkel was then selected in the South African squad for the inaugural Twenty20 World Championship in South Africa, and went on to become one of the stars of the tournament. In October 2012, alongside Dale Steyn and Vernon Philander, Morne Morkel was part of a South African pace attack bowling coach and former test cricketer Allan Donald called the best the country had ever produced.
