South African cricketer and RCBian Albie Morkel tore ligaments in his ankle in August. And the timing of this mishap couldn’t have been worse. He injured himself during a tour that just proceeds South Africa’s domestic season. Sadly, this will leave him out for a minimum of a third of this season.
The damaged ankle will also mean that Morkel will have to sit out of the November tour of Australia which also includes three T20Is. He might also perhaps have ruled himself out of a chance to play for his country in the World Cup that’s right around the corner.
