Albie Morkel gets an International Call up
After bring picked up by Royal Challengers Bangalore for upcoming season of IPL, Albie Morkel’s luck seems to have been at his side as he got an international call up soon after as well.
Albie Morkel had been playing only as a free lancer in IPL and other T-20 tournaments. He had not even thought himself that we will be back in the national side after such a long gap. He has been picked up by Royal Challengers Bangalore for the upcoming season and he has also got a call up back for the South African team.
Ten months ago, Morkel did not think he would ever put a South African shirt on again. Despite not playing for South Africa for 18 months, Morkel is vastly
experienced and he hopes he can draw on that for this tournament. He has
played professional cricket for over a decade and in T20 leagues the
world over and understands the pressures that come with the format.
His ability as a finisher has always been spoken of as his biggest asset
and as something South Africa need in major tournaments. Big runs are
not always the most important consideration. Sometimes quick runs at the
right time are more important and that is what Morkel has shown he can
He is one of the best finishers in World Cricket along with many others.
