9.1

JA Morkel to Tamim Iqbal, no run, gets a half stride forward and taps it to mid-off

9.2

JA Morkel to Tamim Iqbal, OUT, Tamim's in disbelief but he has to walk... Pitches on a good length a shade outside the offstump, Tamim pokes his bat out and there's a sound before the ball reaches the keeper. De Villiers the rest appeal and umpire Nadir Shah is convinced. Replays show the ball clipping the pad on the way through.

JA Morkel to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT, Dust to Ash es . Death by aggression. Full in length, on the middle stump and he goes for a ugly heave and can only manage to send it to mid-on. Ashraful is livid with himself. But the deed has been done. Just 17 runs in this series. What a waste of a talent.

JA Morkel to Nazimuddin, OUT, OMG! What happened there? They are in a suicide mode here. He walked right across the stumps and tried to slog a length delivery across the line but only skied it for Smith to get under it at midwicket. Horrible shot. What was he thinking? Was he thinking?
