Rory Burns thanks Morne Morkel - Kia Oval Skip to main content

Surrey Club Captain Rory Burns has thanked Morne Morkel for all of his efforts during the South African’s three-year stay at The Kia Oval.

Speaking in a recorded message to the legendary fast bowler, Burns highlighted Morkel’s impact on the pitch – particularly during the 2018 County Championship title run.

However, Burns reserved special praise for the influence Morkel has had on the Surrey dressing room citing the years of Test match experience he offered willingly to young and old in the squad.

It was announced earlier this week that Morkel would not return to Surrey in 2021 with a number of players, coaches and fans all expressing their gratitude for the bowler’s efforts in Three Feathers.
