The Legends League Cricket produced some extremely incredible stuff for cricket lovers across the globe. The retired players certainly produced an extravaganza as they mesmerized everyone with their brilliant skills on the field. Despite hanging up their boots, the players have proved why it is often said that class remains permanent.
In one such instance, the grand finale on Saturday witnessed something outrageous. As World Giants were looking for a wicket, they brought on Morne Morkel into the attack and the former South African pacer gave it everything.
The 37-year-old, against all odds, rolled back the years and bowled so quick as if he was still a teenager. Everyone was left in shock when Morkel clocked speed of around 138 kph in one of the deliveries he bowled to Tillakaratne Dilshan, with the batsman also getting stunned with the pace and bounce.
Morkel put so much effort in that delivery that he fell down in a scary manner, in his follow through, but fortunately he did not injure himself in the process.

The pacer was eventually successful in taking the wicket of Dilshan, with a slower delivery later on. Meanwhile, his brother Albie Morkel took 3 wickets on the day to almost seal the win for World Giants, taking them towards the title in inaugural edition of Legends League Cricket.
