1.2

Morkel to Charles, 1 run, defended towards midwicket for a quick single

1.3

Morkel to Powell, FOUR, Powell looking in good touch here, a touch short from Morkel and on the pads, whipped through midwicket for four more, his third boundary

Morkel to Powell, 1 run, just outside off, this was pitched up, defended towards point

Antigua Hawksbills 19/0   JA Morkel 1-0-10-0
3.1

Morkel to Charles, no run, no footwork at all from Charles as he tries to swish that back of a length ball outside off through the covers, he's now 3 off 9

3.2

Morkel to Charles, 1 run, again moves well away from the stumps as he tries to muscle the ball down the ground, badly timed and the ball rolls towards mid-off

3.3

Morkel to Powell, FOUR, angled in towards the body from round the wicket, that isn't enough to cramp up Powell who back away from the leg stump and pulls that away to the midwicket boundary

3.4

Morkel to Powell, FOUR, Powell in superb touch here, another boundary for him, skipping down the track and launches this one over mid-off for four more

3.5

Morkel to Powell, no run, slaps this one towards extra cover, can't get it through though

3.6

Morkel to Powell, no run, on the pads once more, not the best line from Morkel, but he gets away with it this time as Powell defends down the track

10.1

Morkel to Ponting, 1 run, length ball as Morkel begins a new over, punched towards mid-off

10.2

Morkel to Charles, no run, short of length and well outside off, guided towards short third man, well stopped there

10.3

Morkel to Charles, 1 run, keeper has been standing up to Morkel, this was off the pads to point and they scramble through for one

10.4

Morkel to Ponting, 1 run, angles in from outside off, tucked towards square leg

10.5

Morkel to Charles, OUT, Morkel strikes with a straight delivery, pitched up and heading towards middle stumps, Charles looks to drive and misses, the ball crashes into middle, Charles rarely looked at his best today

J Charles b Morkel 36 (30b 5x4 0x6) SR: 120.00

10.6

Morkel to Samuels, 1 run, drama here in St Lucia, did the bowler deliberately get in the way of the batsman? it was a length ball outside off, Samuels looks to push it to the off side, an inside edge sends the ball towards the leg side, Morkel gets across looking to field that, collides with Ponting, who was going for the single, Morkel has his hand on Ponting's shoulder, which gives impression that Morkel hindered the batsman, Ponting had to recover after that and had little chance of beating the throw from the fielder, will he be given out? third umpire takes a while and decides to rule Ponting not out, deciding that Morkel did impede the batsman

Antigua Hawksbills 87/2   JA Morkel 3-0-23-1
12.1

Morkel to Ponting, 1 run, full ball just outside off, a single to long-off

12.2

Morkel to Samuels, 1 run, slapped in front of point for one more

12.3

Morkel to Ponting, OUT, Ponting doesn't survive this time, bends his knee a bit as he looks to swipe this over deep midwicket, it was the typical slower one from Albie Morkel, Ponting connects well enough to send the ball straight to the man at deep midwicket, not the most fluent of innings from the great batsman

RT Ponting c Smith b Morkel 20 (24b 2x4 0x6) SR: 83.33
