“Because of the injury, Mohsin almost lost his arm. Being a year out of the game and coming back to bowl an over like that has been inspirational,” Morkel said on Friday, the eve of the Super Giants’ clash against Knight Riders. What pleased the former South Africa pacer most about Mohsin is his “calmness and composure”.

“To come back without any cricket at all and with a handful of training sessions, then play the IPL where the margins are so small, and to show that composure and calmness was pleasing. Indian cricket has a real gem of a cricketer and somebody they need to look after,”  Morne Morkel added.
