Cape Town - Former Proteas fast bowler Morne Morkel has extended his stay at English county club Surrey until the end of the 2020 season.
According to the club's website, Morkel had originally signed a two-year deal, but has now extended his stay in London until at least the end of the 2020 summer.
Morkel, who retired from international cricket in April last year, made a huge impact in first full season of domestic cricket, taking 59 wickets with an average of 14.32 in the 10 matches he played.
