Morkel pens Surrey deal extension
South African fast bowler Morne Morkel has signed a new deal to stay with Surrey until the end of the 2020 County Championship season.
The 34-year-old right-armer, who took 309 wickets in 86 Tests for the Proteas between 2006 and 2018, was a key player in Surrey's championship-winning year last term as he took 59 wickets at an average of 14.32.
Morkel had penned a one-year deal when moved to The Oval ahead of the 2018 campaign, but this news means he will now stay put for a third year.
Director of Cricket, Alec Stewart, said: "Morne was outstanding for us during his first season, both on and off the field. I am delighted he has extended his contract with the club."
