“When In Need”- Chennai Super Kings Post A Special Tweet To Wish Albie Morkel On His Birthday

Chennai Super Kings is one of the most popular franchises in the Indian Premier League. The Chennai-based franchise has won four championships and qualified for the playoffs in 11 out of the 13 seasons that they have played. One of the main reasons behind the team’s success is that they back the players and realize their full potential. Albie Morkel was one of such players.

Morkel was not so well-known before he became a match-winner for the Chennai Super Kings. He was an underrated all-rounder who could bowl tight overs in the powerplay and smash big hits in the slog overs whenever needed.

Talking about his numbers for the Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League, Morkel played 78 games for the franchise, scoring 827 runs at a strike rate of 144.83 in 59 innings. He smashed two fifties while donning the yellow jersey in the league.
