Albie Morkel

Age 42South AfricaSOUTH AFRICA
Left Handed All Rounder

Johannes Albertus Morkel aka “Albie” was initiated into the international fold for South Africa in an ODI in 2004 against New Zealand as a bowling all-rounder. In domestic circuits, Albie was regarded as the next Lance Klusener in the making, helped by having the same right-hand ball, left-hand bat combination as Zulu.

It was three years following his debut, in 2007 that Albie rose in stature with an impressive 97 against Zimbabwe and 4 wicket haul against Pakistan on tour. It also led to a jackpot IPL contract with the Chennai in 2008, where he has been a consistent contributor with the bat, apart from his skilful bowling. In 2009, Albie got his first Test cap against Australia, replacing his brother Morne, where he went on to make a fifty on debut and helped South Africa to an innings victory. His role as a finisher in the game is an added asset to his already existing bowling potential but soon, Albie fell out of contention as a confirmed player in the starting XI and continues to be in and out of the limited-overs format. After spending six successful years in the Chennai outfit, he was taken up by Bangalore in the 2014 auction.
