Australia won by 8 wickets (with 14 balls remaining)

1.1

Morkel to Watson, no run, goodish length this time, defended with ease from the crease towards cover

1.2

Morkel to Watson, no run, shortish on the off, waits for it to come on and defends it towards point

1.3

Morkel to Watson, 1 run, in the channel outside off but slightly short, that's been guided down to third man for a single

1.4

Morkel to Warner, no run, beats Warner as well, lands slightly short on the off and gets it to nip away, Warner pushes from the crease but it just escapes the outside edge

1.5

Morkel to Warner, no run, short of a good length on middle, rocks back and presents the full face as he defends

1.6

Morkel to Warner, 2 runs, short of a good length, opens the face and crunches it towards point where the fielder dives but can't prevent them from taking two

Australia 5/0   M Morkel 1-0-3-0

3.1

Morkel to Warner, OUT, Gets him! Warner goes, Warner, keen to attack after a quiet first three overs, made some room to go over the top, landed slightly short of a good length on leg and middle, he was aiming to go over extra cover, appeared to get a thin edge but straight onto the stumps, South Africa have struck early

DA Warner b Morkel 5 (15m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 55.55

3.2

Morkel to Hussey, no run, drops that short on middle and off, rocks back and knocks that one down into the off side

3.3

Morkel to Hussey, 1 wide, down the leg side this time and he appeals in vain, Hussey tried to glance that down but made no contact, the umpire calls it a wide

3.3

Morkel to Hussey, 1 run, on leg and middle, off the mark with a knock in front of mid-off, quick single, fuller than usual from Morkel

3.4

Morkel to Watson, 1 run, calmly guided down to third man for a single, just a bit of width from Morkel and was a little short as well

3.5

Morkel to Hussey, 1 run, fullish again but on leg stump and Hussey has no trouble just dropping it in front of mid-on and stealing another single

3.6

Morkel to Watson, 1 run, shortish on middle, gets on the back foot and pushes it to mid-on for a single, nicely done

Australia 15/1   M Morkel 2-0-8-1

5.1

Morkel to Watson, FOUR, and he errs in length this time, short and wide, much like Kallis in the previous over and Watson makes it two in two, there's plenty of width for him to blaze that through point

5.2

Morkel to Watson, FOUR, shot, pitched up on the off, he's forward, to the pitch and stylishly drives that past a diving extra cover, wide of mid-off, for a boundary

5.3

Morkel to Watson, 1 run, width again, this time it's cut down towards third man for a single

5.4

Morkel to Hussey, 1 run, straying on leg and Hussey was looking to clip it into the leg side, gets a leg-bye in front of square leg

5.5

Morkel to Watson, FOUR, bad ball from Morkel, a full toss, and worse, it's on the pads, flicked away with ease past short fine leg, easy pickings

5.6

Morkel to Watson, 1 run, another one on the pads, full on middle and leg and that was flicked too, but towards a deep square leg this time, so just the single

Australia 38/1   M Morkel 3-0-23-1
