"My main man - the fastest bowler in the world" -Albie Morkel

Another 'maiq'. Did you notice him on my list?

This is the guy who called the IPL a 'paid holiday'. His favourite cricketer is Allan Donald & he only knows two shots. Shaun Pollock sponsored his shoes (by giving him his hand-me-downs) when he just started playing Test matches.

Dale plays for the Titans & Bangalore's Royal Challengers. Yes that Indian/ South African (with a lost New Zealander) team.

He is the quickest South African who celebrated getting 100 Test wickets. ICC Test Player of the Year 2008, for taking 86 wickets at an average of 18.1 in 14 matches. Usually down, way down the batting card. But he's not such a horrible batsman either. He scored 76 against Australia in Melbourne.
