READ: Morkel joins the '300 club'

Called up as a replacement for the injured Lungi Ngidi, Morkel claimed the three wickets he so desperately craved, and deserved for that matter, to become a member of Test cricket's '300 club'.  

The lanky Proteas fast bowler was swamped by his team-mates when he snapped up the wicket of Shaun Marsh for his 300th scalp to join Shaun Pollock (421), Dale Steyn (419), Makhaya Ntini (390) and Allan Donald (330) in South Africa’s ‘300 club’.

Morkel ended the day with 4/87 from his 20 overs.
