Morkel said South Africa have a great record all over the world and added that if South Africa can bring reverse swing into the game the Indian batsmen might find it difficult to cope with the proteas’ bowling attack.
Morkel was almost ruled out for this Test match after twisting his ankle on day three of the first match at Johannesburg.
“I had an MRI scan done and they said it was a grade three injury. Then we did a sonar scan and we found out it was only grade one. So I went into rehab and worked hard with our medical team. They did some magic and the swelling went away and we worked on fitness. I am really happy to be playing this match, especially since this is Jacques Kallis‘s last Test,” he said in a PTI report.
Kallis had led the team onto the field in the morning. In fact, he was allowed to venture out 10 seconds before his mates joined him. The crowd gave him a rousing and standing ovation and he responded with raised hands and a bow with his hat.
