4.1

JA Morkel to Ervine, FOUR, too wide and cracked for four past point, good stroke from the crease

4.2

JA Morkel to Ervine, 1 run, much straighter now, worked down to long leg

4.3

JA Morkel to Masakadza, no run, step to leg but Morkel followed him well and beats the stroke, hitting Masakadza on the body

4.4

JA Morkel to Masakadza, OUT, and now tries to go down the ground and puts it straight to mid on. Tried to lift a length ball over the top but got too much air on it and nowhere near enough length, chipping it to mid on for a simple catch

H Masakadza c Levi b JA Morkel 6 (23m 17b 1x4 0x6) SR: 35.29

4.5

JA Morkel to Ervine, 1 run, length ball around leg stump, worked to long leg

9.1

JA Morkel to Ervine, no run, length ball around off stump, forward block to cover

9.2

JA Morkel to Ervine, 1 run, well-timed back foot drive but straight out to deep cover

9.3

JA Morkel to Matsikenyeri, 1 run, length ball around off, worked in front of square on the leg side

9.4

JA Morkel to Ervine, 1 wide, short ball on the line of leg stump, ducked

9.4

JA Morkel to Ervine, 1 wide, another short ball but this time further to leg and a wide, was pulled and missed but no touch

9.4

JA Morkel to Ervine, 2 runs, leg stumpish and worked down towards long leg, they charge back for the second and the return throw is horrendous, could have been an overthrow but Ervine overran

9.5

JA Morkel to Ervine, 1 run, leg stump again, worked out to deep midwicket

9.6

JA Morkel to Matsikenyeri, 1 run, a rush down the wicket and a tennis shot to mid off, direct hit but the batsman safely home

Zimbabwe 51/3   JA Morkel 2-0-14-1
11.1

JA Morkel to Ervine, 1 run, leg stump and clipped down to long leg

11.2

JA Morkel to Cremer, 2 runs, taken from off stump, a little across the line past mid on for a couple

11.3

JA Morkel to Cremer, no run, length ball, played across it again and nicks it onto his pad otherwise it was another good lbw shout, might have been a touch high

11.4

JA Morkel to Cremer, 1 run, back foot push wide of mid off for a sharp single

11.5

JA Morkel to Ervine, no run, step to leg, dabbed towards point, they turn down the single

11.6

JA Morkel to Ervine, 2 runs, slower ball, shorter and turned to long leg, again they run hard for two, the throw was good, de Villiers gets the bails off quickly, did the dive save Ervine? Yes it did, full length dive gets him home

Zimbabwe 57/5   JA Morkel 3-0-20-1
18.1

JA Morkel to Jarvis, no run, back of a length, punched to mid on off the inner half of the bat

18.2

JA Morkel to Jarvis, 1 wide, beats the batsman outside off with a ball that lifted slightly

18.2

JA Morkel to Jarvis, no run, length ball around middle stump, angled to point

18.3

JA Morkel to Jarvis, 2 runs, step down the wicket, they attempt a single to mid off, a direct hit could bring a run out here, the batsman looked to get his bat down late but he did get it down in time, a slide in and he was well home, almost a very silly piece of cricket

18.4

JA Morkel to Jarvis, 1 run, step to leg and cracked to point

18.5

JA Morkel to Price, 2 runs, heaved into the leg side, comes high off the bat and over midwicket but short of the deep fielders, very lucky but a couple more avoids the low total

18.6

JA Morkel to Price, no run, misses with a pull

Zimbabwe 86/8   JA Morkel 4-0-26-1
