New Delhi: South Africa started the third day of the fourth Test in a perfect manner as Morne Morkelhighlighted the beauty of fast bowling by being lethal and variable.

Morkel's nerves of consistency, variety and accuracy was a treat to watch after he wrecked the Indian batting order with three wickets. Morkel derived bounce, pace and swing in a chilly third day here at the Feroz Shah Kotla.

All three Morkel's dismissals proved his potency of bowling unplayable deliveries as the Indian batsmen fell to his magic.

Morkel's liking for Murali Vijay continued as the pacer got the opener once again in a beautiful manner. Morkel bowled a superb short ball to expose Vijay's discomfort as the batsman tried to dodge the ball. Dane Vilas took an excellent catch behind as an unhappy Vijay signalled the ball had brushed his arm-guard. Replays confirmed the same but Morne had his victim by then.

Next up he bowled a beautiful inswinger to an out of form Rohit Sharma who was no where with his footwork and lost his stumps.

Morkel made the day brighter for South Africa and himself after sending birthday boy Shikhar Dhawan to the pavilion with a toe crushing yorker. Dhawan was bowled and Morkel's demolition looked fiery.

Morkel's variation was the treat for many just as it was in Nagpur Test match. The bowler has stood out for South Africa in the absence of Dale Steyn and though India went on to impose a healthy score of 190/4 to take a big lead of 403 runs, Morkel had done his work to show his extraction from the pitch.

Morkel will hope to get into the act on the fourth day with the new ball and get some quick wickets in the morning session. He was the only bowler who shined for the visitors and looks dangerous on this Kotla wicket which shows us that batsmen can get runs provided they are patient and positive.

AB DEVILLIERS RETIREMENT FROM TEST RUBBISHED BY MORNE

"I think it is a story. He is still very keen to play for South Africa and to break records," Morkel was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo.

Earlier, Rapport, an Afrikaans newspaper reported that several of de Villiers' current and former team-mates revealed to them that "events in recent years have led him to seriously reconsider his Test future."

South Africa are hosting England in a four-Test, five-ODI and two-T20I series. And de Vilier is expected to lead the Proteas in the limited overs format.

Earlier this week, he won the ODI Cricketer of the Year 2015 award.

South Africa vs England: Proteas bowlers glad to be back on friendly wickets

After humiliation against India, Morne Morkel is looking forward to Test series against England.

Durban: A change from spin-friendly wickets in India to ones favouring seamers means South Africa’s pace attack are keenly looking forward to the test series against England, which starts on Saturday.

The pacemen toiled in India last month when South Africa were thrashed 3-0 by their hosts but they will find tailor-made wickets for the four-test series against the English.

“It’s always fun for a fast bowler starting off in the nets to see a bit of bounce but the whole bowling unit is excited," said Morne Morkel, who shouldered much of the responsibility in India after injuries to Vernon Philander and Dale Steyn and enhanced his reputation with his reverse-swing bowling.

"Training has gone well in the last two days, it was important for us to get the cobwebs out and to build on (it) for Boxing Day,” Morkel told reporters on Wednesday.

“I sat down with (bowling coach) Charl (Langeveldt) and worked on a couple ideas, setting batsmen up with the reversing ball, it was pleasing for me to get that skill going. It’s going to be a crucial part, especially here in Durban where the ball can scuff up.

“I enjoyed leading the attack in India, it was a great challenge for me,” he added.

“When you get the number one-ranked fast bowler back you will gladly take the backseat again. Dale has some sideline fever at the moment, he is ready to go. He has worked hard on his game over the last couple of weeks and you can see with the energy and venom he has been bowling with in the nets today, it’s quite exciting,” Morkel said.

“We are playing at home and although things didn’t go according to plan in India, it’s time for us to front up, we need to lead from the front.

"It’s important for us not to look too far ahead and to just take it session by session and to try and play the best quality cricket that we know we can play. We know the wheel will turn in our favour again and it’s just a matter of sticking it out and fronting up.”

India vs SA 2015: Morne Morkel's perfect outing defines variety
Zee Media Bureau

New Delhi: Morne Morkel stood out for South Africa on the first day of the third Test match against at Nagpur on Wednesday.


The fast-bowler showed nerves of consistency, variety and accuracy after sending back India's premier batsmen back to the hut. In the end although Morkel ended up bowling only 16.1 overs, he had already handed the visitors crucial grip in the Test match.

Morkel had figures of 16.1-35-7-3 as he hurt India by bowling fuller in the middle-off channel. Murali Vijay, Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane fell victims to Morkel's magic. Morkel's ability to reverse swing the ball showed his class on Nagpur wicket that aided to his liking.

Morkel who bowled more shorter to Vijay in the rain-washed Test match in Bengaluru, changed his approach in Nagpur. Vijay almost lost his wicket in the 2nd Test after trying to pull a Morkel short ball only for Imran Tahir to miss a sitter. This time Morkel tied up Vijay and got him LBW after a full-length delivery swung to trap Vijay who missed it.

Kohli was his next victim and the latter looked unsure over his footwork against Morkel who teased him to fish outside the off-stump. Virat who scored just 22 runs fell to Morkel after getting teased outside the off-stump and edging a ball to the wicket-keeper.

Rahane meanwhile looked a bit over-ambitious when he attempted a drive off an in-swinging delivery that brushed his pads to hit the stumps. Morkel had kept bowling out-swingers to Rahane and that set up the Indian batsman perfectly who misread the in-swinging ball.

Morkel's variation was the treat for many as spinners on the other end did most damage. Morkel who shoulders more responsibility in the absence of Dale Steyn, was seen going off the field after feeling something in his leg. He didn't come out to bowl any further.

Most likely it could be a precautionary measure as the Proteas will hope he is ready to bowl fresh when they get out against India in the 2nd innings.
