On a shocking note, South African Pacer Morne Morkel has announced that he will retire from International Cricket after the home series against Australia which begins on March 1st. The 33-year-old confirmed his decision at a media conference in Durban as the team is gearing up to play for the test match against Australia.
Morne is expected to play in all the four test matches and currently, he has 294 Test scalps. Regarding the surprise decision, Morne said, "I have a young family and a foreign wife so I believe this is the best time to do this. Out of respect to Cricket South Africa, it was important for us to make this announcement now."
“Morne has been a remarkable servant to SA cricket. He has been a role model and has risen up the ranks to become one of the best fast bowlers in the world,” Doc Moosajee.— Myron Naicker (@myronnaicker) February 26, 2018
“I will miss the close family at the Proteas and the culture. I know that I am leaving this team in a happy place. I have no doubt that the Proteas will grow and win a trophy in the near future.” Morkel— Myron Naicker (@myronnaicker) February 26, 2018
