<a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/south-africa/">South Africa</a> allrounder <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/chris-morris/news/">Chris Morris</a> has credited head coach <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/ottis-gibson/">Ottis Gibson</a> for making him a better bowler. <p></p> <p></p>The Proteas finally banked their first victory of the ongoing <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/series/icc-cricket-world-cup-2019-200898/">ICC World Cup</a> with a nine-wicket win over <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/afghanistan/">Afghanistan</a> here on Saturday. And Morris played his role, with 3/13 his best figures of the tournament. <p></p> <p></p>The 32-year old allrounder was a late addition to Faf du Plessis' team, replacing Anrich Nortje, who was ruled out with a hand injury. <p></p> <p></p>And Gibson, a former pacer himself, has worked hard to establish his place in a squad that have been hit with injuries to their frontline bowling attack, Dale Steyn flying home with a shoulder injury and Lungi Ngidi still on the sidelines with a hamstring problem. <p></p> <p></p>"There are a lot less worms in my head on the cricket field these days. The job I was given by Ottis was quite a clear-cut one. If I stick to that, it's a job I think I can do," said Morris. <p></p> <p></p>"I have worked quite nicely with Ottis in the last two weeks. We have found something in the run-up that we've changed. That's given me a lot more rhythm and more balance at the crease. It's coming on nicely for now. I try not to bowl as fast as I can because that's when I tend to break. It's just about finding rhythm, hitting the wicket and not trying to do too many things." <p></p> <p></p>Though Morris opened the bowling against India, he usually comes in at first or second change where has the dual task of containing the opposition's run-rate and taking wickets. <p></p> <p></p>In the past, Morris focussed more on bowling fast but now he is working on subtle skills to ensure he stays injury-free. A new approach has brought him consistency, something that South Africa's attack as a whole have been striving for and may have found in their win over Afghanistan. <p></p> <p></p>After Afghanistan scored 33 runs in the first 5.5 overs before the first rain delay in Cardiff, Gibson scolded his bowlers for being a little too wayward. They returned with more focus. "At the first rain break, the bowlers got a bit of a slap on the wrist. We were told we need to be more consistent in what we are doing and that we don't need to try too much," added Morris. <p></p> <p></p>"After that rain break, we came on and we were a lot more consistent, a lot more at the batters and everything in the field just clicked for us. We needed a little bit of a pep talk from the coach and that was quite good." <p></p> <p></p>South Africa then took two Afghan wickets before another rain delay, after which they forced a collapse of five wickets for eight runs in 29 balls, taking advantage of Afghanistan's penchant for playing their shots.
