SA fast bowler Morne Morkel to quit internationals after Australia series

SA fast bowler Morne Morkel to quit internationals after Australia series

Australia will look to continue their strong Test form when they take on South Africa in a four-match series beginning in Durban on March 1st.

Meanwhile, it can be recalled here that pitches produced during India's tour was widely criticized and drew the ire of the International Cricket Council (ICC).

Of interest to both will be the surfaces that they are given to play, especially after the fiery pitches that greeted India's visit. "We've not asked for anything specific", Du Plessis told the media. Bancroft had a stunning Ashes debut in which he scored an unbeaten 82 to partner Warner who scored 87 not out for a 187 run opening stand and a 10 wicket win. That's the nature of the square.

Elgar remembered Kingsmead as being "quite slow and low" in the Test against England in December 2016.

An injury to his right index finger has kept De Villiers out for the last fortnight, along with captain Faf du Plessis who has a finger injury of his own to add to recent back ailments. But the last Test at The Wanderers, which starts on March 30, is expected to significantly favour the quick bowlers, enhanced by being played at altitude, 1,750m above sea level.

The match officials cited concerns over the players' safety after numerous batsmen were struck on the body during the Test.

Morkel's worldwide career has spanned 12 years in which he formed a deadly new-ball partnership with Dale Steyn, who is now sidelined with injury.

'Certainly it's a big series for us. "He is also a great bloke, and has always been friendly when we met", Khawaja reflected.

Australia takes on South Africa in a four-match series starting tonight.

Johnson has now retired from global cricket, of course, but Warner will open the batting for Australia at Kingsmead with the tourists poised to name the same XI that beat England in Sydney in January to seal a 4-0 Ashes victory.

"The conditions are similar but it's still an away tour for us".

"So if we win that series I think we can say we're travelling pretty well". Morkel has dismissed the former Australian batsman eight times, with no other bowler having more success against the Australian.

He was not named in the 2016 World T20 squad, did not play in the 2017 Indian Premier League as he sought to find form ahead of a demanding global season, and was unsold in this year's auction. "We wish him everything of the best in his future endeavours", he said.

"I've had five days out of the six bowling, so it's been good for the body, good to get a couple of wickets", Starc said. The year was 1970 and even to the present day, Lawry still remains the last Australian skipper to lose a series in the Rainbow nation.
