Morne Morkel, 6'5": Albie's younger brother uses his height to generate huge amounts of pace and bounce. Along with Dale Steyn, Morkel, a gangly right-arm fast bowler, forms one of the best new-ball pairs in the contemporary cricket, especially in the longest format. Morkel has also turned in superlative performances with the ball for Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Daredevils in the IPL, a tournament he has said helped sharpen his bowling skills. The 27-year-old also plays for Yorkshire in English county cricket and for the Titans back home.
