Morkel – A Raw Talent Second to None

Morne Morkel – a name that strikes fear into many an international batsmen. I don’t think the television viewer gets a full picture of just how scary a Morkel delivery is. A ball hurtling at you at 145kph+ is scary at the best of times, but when it is hurtling at your chest after bouncing off the pitch in a manner similar to a tennis ball it becomes a different proposition altogether.

Dale Steyn is famous for his brutal attack on Craig Cumming. Morne is yet to have such a moment, but he certainly will. In fact, he will probably have many. It seems a South African pace bowler phenomenon – Allan Donald had a similar experience with Mike Atherton. I hope that when Morkel has his moment of similar aggression- for it is not a question of if – it will rub off on him in a manner similar to how it did on Steyn. That moment changed Steyn – he was no longer just a technically amazing bowler who swung it at pace. He was a fast bowler, and a darn good one.

Morkel has the ability to be a fast bowler, and just as good a one as Steyn. Big call, I know, but I really believe it. He just needs to get his game to click into place – we’ve seen it happen sporadically, but not enough. Morne, the situation is simple: find consistency; find greatness.
