Profile

The IPL's biggest South African beneficiary must be Chris Morris, who sold for US$625,000 at the 2013 auction and US$1 million three years later. Morris is a bowling allrounder, who often sends the speedgun beyond 140kph and bats fearlessly in the lower-order. He is also a handy slip-fielder, and in that regard, he takes after his father, former Northern Transvaal first-class cricketer Willie.
