Cape Town - Cricket South Africa has decided to release Albie Morkel from the Standard Bank ODI squad for the remaining two MTN ODIs against India.

He will thus be available to play for the Nashua Titans in this weekend’s round of SuperSport Series matches.

“We originally brought him into the squad to provide additional cover in the batting all-rounder position,” commented coach Corrie van Zyl, “but we have now decided that it is better for him to have regular match practice with the Titans.

“He remains a standby player for the Cricket World Cup squad in the event of injury.”
