Morkel to re­tire

Marlborough Express - - SPORT -

South Africa fast bowler Morne Morkel says he will re­tire from all forms of in­ter­na­tional cricket af­ter the up­com­ing test se­ries against Aus­tralia. Morkel yes­ter­day said the ‘‘cur­rent de­mand­ing in­ter­na­tional sched­ule’’ had put a strain on his fam­ily life. The 33-year-old pace­man has played 83 tests and is the fifth-high­est wicket-taker for South Africa in the five-day for­mat with 294. He also played in 117 one-day in­ter­na­tion­als and 44 Twenty20 in­ter­na­tion­als. He has 529 wickets across the three for­mats in a 12-year in­ter­na­tional ca­reer.
