He also spoke about Morne Morkel’s inclusion in upcoming Test at Cape Town. He said: I think it would be a natural thing for Morne Morkel to come in. For him, close to 300 Test wickets, he s an experienced guy, (playing his) last series. You d want him make a big impact if he does get that opportunity.”
