Cricket Shocking Update: Morne Morkel Quits as Pakistan Bowling Coach Post World Cup Woes

In an unexpected move, the Pakistan cricket fraternity faces another setback as Morne Morkel resigns from his role as the team’s bowling coach. Morkel, who commenced his six-month contract in June, aimed to fortify the team’s pace attack but departed amidst speculation about internal dynamics within the coaching staff.

The decision follows Pakistan’s lackluster performance in the 2023 ODI World Cup, where they failed to advance to the knockout stage. While Morkel didn’t delve into specifics regarding his resignation, questions arise about the overall strategy and individual player performances.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) swiftly responded to Morkel’s departure, assuring a prompt announcement of his replacement “in due course.” This development, just before the crucial three-match Test series against Australia, adds complexity to the team’s preparations.

Throughout his tenure, Morkel’s influence on Pakistan’s bowling lineup was a mix of successes and challenges. The fast bowlers exhibited promise in series against Afghanistan and the early stages of the Asia Cup, showcasing their potential. However, vulnerabilities surfaced in the World Cup, particularly in the fast bowling department, a concern echoed by cricket legends like Wasim Akram.
