Cape Town: South Africa recalled hard-hitting all-rounder Albie Morkel on Monday in their 15-member squad for the World Twenty20 in Bangladesh, starting next month. The 32-year-old last played in the 20-over format for the Proteas at the previous World Twenty20, held in Sri Lanka, in 2012.
South Africa have also included uncapped left-arm seamer Beuran Hendricks in their squad.
The Cape Cobras player set a record for the most wickets during the domestic Twenty20 competition concluded earlier this month with 28 from 11 matches at an economy rate of just over seven. It is this form that also recently earned him a contract with King’s XI Punjab in the IPL.
