‘CSA Needs To Figure This Out Soon’-Morne Morkel Wants Faf du Plessis In The South African Team For The ICC World T20 2022

Morne Morkel, a former South African fast bowler, has asked that Faf du Plessis be considered for the 2022 T20 World Cup in Australia. Morkel said that the former captain is still playing well even though he is 37 years old.

Cricket South Africa does not have a contract with Du Plessis (CSA). But some people want him back on the national team for the T20 World Cup. He had a great IPL 2022 season. He led the Royal Challengers Bangalore and scored 468 runs at a strike rate of 127.52. (RCB).

Morkel said the following at an event in Melbourne to mark 100 days until the start of the T20 World Cup in Australia:

“You want all your big-name players to play, and Faf is still playing well at age 37. He is still playing well and moving well on the field. He has been very good for RCB (in the IPL). I’d like to see those players with a lot of experience on the team. That is something that CSA needs to figure out, but I am a big fan of him.”

Graeme Smith, a former South African captain, also said that Du Plessis should be considered for the ICC tournament in Australia.

“They have an attack that will work well in this situation.” – Morne Morkel talks about how South Africa bowls

The former pacer looked at the Proteas’ chances at the T20 World Cup and thought that South Africa has the team to compete with the best teams. He said:

“I really think they have an attack that will work well in this situation. Kagiso Rabada is one of the best players in the world, Anrich Nortje did well in the IPL, and Shamsi is a good spinner. I do think it’s a well-balanced team, and in T20 cricket, teams are so close these days.”

Morkel then turned his attention to the batsmen and said that the top order should do well in Australia. He said this:

“Quinton De Kock has been in great form with the bat, so you can’t leave him out of the conversation. Aiden Markram is another good player, and (Temba) Bevuma finds a way to score runs and change the strike even though he is not a typical T20 player. He is going to be a big player on these big fields (in Australia) where you can hit pockets and run well.”

Recently, the Proteas tied 2-2 in a T20I series in India. They will play their first T20 World Cup game on October 24 in Hobart against a first-round qualifier.
