A gentle giant off the field, ferocious fast bowler on it, Morné Morkel has been a key member of South Africa’s cricket team for nearly a decade. Capable of producing completely unplayable spells of aggressive quick bowling, Morné regularly terrifies opposition batsmen away from the field. He is quiet, friendly, and vested with a great sense of humour – and likes nothing better than escaping to the bush.

Morné made his ODI debut playing for an Africa XI side. In the following game he opened the bowling with his brother Albie, making ODI history. He was then selected for 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.
