Morne Morkel Becomes A Local Resident Of Australia
South African born former fast bowler Morne Morkel has now become a local resident of Australia.
This news comes after the fast bowler announced his retirement from his three-year county stint at Surrey stating that it was no longer feasible to spend long periods of time away from his family in Sydney.
Earlier today, Brisbane Heat confirmed the link-up of Morkel as a "local" player for the upcoming Big Bash League starting in December.
"I am still enjoying my cricket enormously and the chance to be part of the Heat squad is something I am keen to experience,'' Morkel, who retired from international cricket in 2018, said.
"I admit it will be a bit unusual to call myself a local, but we are enjoying living and working here and this is another aspect of our lives that I am looking forward to being a part of," he further added.
