22.3

Pollard to Morgan, no run, back of a length and Morgan stands tall to block

22.4

Pollard to Morgan, no run, ooh, bit of a nothing fiddle sort of shot attempted and it beats the outside edge

22.5

Pollard to Morgan, 1 run, this just sticks in the pitch a touch which made Morgan's wristy flip around the corner rather risky

England 123/3   EJG Morgan 1* (3b)
23.1

Bishoo to Morgan, 1 run, Morgan eases a single down the ground. Sammy has set the field deep so it's a help-yourself shot

23.3

Bishoo to Morgan, 1 run, another single for Morgan knocked around the corner

23.5

Bishoo to Morgan, no run, ooh, Morgan on the reverse-whack very early, the extra spin defeated him though and it spun into his pad

23.6

Bishoo to Morgan, 1 run, wow, this really does turn, from a shortish length admittedly but always good to see a legspinner. Rashid, oh Rashid. Anyway, Morgan helps it on its way to fine leg

England 128/3   EJG Morgan 4* (7b)
24.1

Pollard to Morgan, 1 run, Pollard has barely bowled a full ball this innings, Morgan sits on the back foot here and chops some width to deep cover

24.3

Pollard to Morgan, 1 run, Morgan exchanges singles with Bell by dabbing to third man

England 131/3   EJG Morgan 6* (9b)
25.1

Bishoo to Morgan, 1 run, touch short to Morgan, the sort of Steve Smith-like delivery Morgan was pulling to midwicket in Australia. No alarms this time though as he picks off a single

25.6

Bishoo to Morgan, no run, Morgan gets forward and defence with textbook conventionality

England 134/3   EJG Morgan 7* (11b)
27.1

Bishoo to Morgan, no run, looks like a slider or something here, definitely not a legspinner and Morgan defends

27.2

Bishoo to Morgan, OUT, oh no, that could be it! Bishoo has the key wicket! Tame end too, Morgan aiming a delicate reverse sweep, misses and brushes a glove through to Thomas who makes no mistake

EJG Morgan c †Thomas b Bishoo 7 (22m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 53.84

England 134/5   EJG Morgan 7 (13b)
