Just-retired South African pacer Morne Morkel, on Wednesday, posted a heartfelt message on Twitter. Morkel ended his 11-year long career with a historic series win over Australia.

Morkel finished the four-match series with 15 wickets including his career-best 9 for 110 in the third Test. He bowled with a side strain in the last game and returned 1/34 and 2/28 as the Proteas beat Australia to win a series in home for the first time since 1970.

Morkel made his Test debut in 2006 after taking 4 for 74 against India in a warm-up game.  Within a couple of years, he became an integral part of South Africa’s Test team. In 2008, he was the joint leading wicket-taker on South Africa’s tour of England.

After Mkhaya Ntini’s retirement, he shared the new ball with Dale Steyn and had great success. He took Test 49 wickets in 2010, his highest in a calendar year. He was part of the South African side that displaced England to claim the Test mace and several other series victories.


He finished his career with 306 wickets from 85 Tests at an average of 27.73. He remained in the top ten of Test bowlers for a long time and had also rose to number one spot in ODI rankings in 2011.

His illustrious career has now come to an end and Morkel is surely missing the game. In his latest tweet, he made it clear before thanking one and all for the support and messages.

“So the sun came up and life is moving on but I’m still holding on to one of the highlights of my life.. thanks for all the support and messages..,” he tweeted.

But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan.
You will never walk alone.
