Chris Morris IPL : Height can be a pace bowler’s greatest asset. Chris Morris, a tall pacer with the ability of using the long handle to great effect, proves that point pretty effectively. Born in Pretoria, Chris Morris grew up getting trained under his father, Willie Morris, a pacer who played in South Africa’s domestic circuit for quite a long time. Morris has quickly become one of South Africa’s best match finishers, but has still failed to consistently maintain his position in the lineup due to the endless list of talented all-rounders in South Africa. He will be plying his trade for Delhi Capitals this season and he will look to make the most of it to help himself stay on the right track for the big World Cup months later.

Lesser Known Facts

  • Chris Morris’ father, Willie Morris, too was a quick bowler, and both father and son have a hat-trick to their name in South Africa’s domestic circuit.
  • The crazy $650,000 bid on him by Chennai Super Kings made Chris Morris say, he has never that much money. He, however, lived up to the billing and delivered emphatically for the franchise.
