Morkel was approved by the BBL Technical Committee to re-join the Heat squad after his spot was taken by a local replacement player while the fast bowler was completing his recovery from ankle surgery.
He has been training strongly over the past 10 days and will come into contention for the final squad of 13 tomorrow night.
With Mujeeb Ur Rahman departing for International duties, Morkel’s inclusion is the only change to the Heat squad.
