Morne Morkel becomes 5th South African to have 300 wickets in his name

Morne Morkel has become the fifth bowler from South Africa to have taken 300 wickets in the test cricket format. Morkel took 3 wickets which include wicket of Usman Khawaja, Steve Smith and Shaun Marsh on the 2nd day of the test series against Australia. He's also the 4th oldest player to have 300 wickets. Morkel, however, may not be able to surpass the world record as he would be retiring after the test series ends.
