Profile

Birth Date 06 October 1984
IPL debut 2009

A tall frame, high arm action, high release point, good pace and the ability to generate discerning bounce off the pitch makes Morne Morkel the quintessential fast bowler. Long before Morkel had played for South Africa, pace legend Allan Donald had identified him as someone who would go on to play international cricket with distinction. He has troubled batsman all over with his disconcerting pace. The younger of the Morkel brothers, he was with the Rajasthan Royals in the first three seasons of the IPL, but was signed by the Delhi Daredevils at the IPL Player Auction 2011. He was the Delhi Daredevils’ leading wicket-taker in IPL 2011, and followed it up by winning a Purple cap in the IPL 2012 with 25 wickets. After playing for the Delhi franchise for one more year, Morkel was snapped up by KKR at the 2014 IPL Player Auction.
