At MCG, India showed they can blow away any side: Morkel

Out of favour South African all-rounder Albie Morkel says India’s hammering of the Proteas at the MCG demonstrated that the defending champions are capable of blowing any team away in the World Cup and big-ticket ICC events bring out the best in them.

Morkel, holidaying after getting done with the domestic season, was courageous enough to watch every ball of the match where India recorded an unexpected 130-run over South Africa.

“Of course I did (watch the game) and the outcome was unexpected. It surely was not the best day out for the Proteas. India on their day will blow most teams away and that is what happened at the MCG. Having said that, South Africa will bounce back,” Morkel, who has played alongside many Indian players in the IPL, told PTI on Wednesday.

India’s ominous form in the premier event has impressed many, considering the team was winless in the preceding tour of Australia. India had also overcome their limitations to win the 2013 Champions Trophy in England.

The otherwise formidable South Africa on the other hand are prone to ‘choke’ in major ICC events.
