Cape Town - Cricket South Africa (CSA) has congratulated Morne Morkel on his achievement of becoming the fifth Proteas bowler to reach the milestone of 300 Test match wickets.

He reached the mark when he dismissed Australia’s Shaun Marsh on the second afternoon of the third Test match at Newlands on Friday.

He follows in the footsteps of Shaun Pollock (421 wickets), Dale Steyn (currently 419), Makhaya Ntini (390) and Allan Donald (330).

“Congratulations to Morne on joining the 300 club,” commented CSA Acting Chief Executive Thabang Moroe.

“He has been one of the stalwarts of our world-class pace attack for more than a decade and played a major role in some of the Proteas outstanding performances in recent times including away series wins in England and Australia.

“It is wonderful that he is able to finish his career on such a high note against opponents against whom he has produced some of his most memorable performances.”
