Morkel to Goswami, FOUR, shot of the day from Goswami. 144 kph, back of a length and not there to be driven. Goswami gets the half step forward, meets the ball and thumps it on the rise over a quickly ducking Kallis' head, and it pistols away to long off.


Morkel to Goswami, 1 run, this one is a touch wider of the stumps, Goswami rides the bounce and plays it into the off side

Morkel to Kallis, FOUR, 154.6 kph, short and just a touch wide outside off. Kallis trots out again and murders it over point. It was short and rising as he met it with a vicious cross-batted slam. Up and over, six runs on this mickey-mouse outfield. Top shot.

Morkel to Tiwary, SIX, Tiwary has got stuck into a length ball from Morne Morkel here. He's hitting some brutal blows over the short leg side boundary. Morne' natural angle brings it in, and the leg side swipe is on, but Tiwary's timing there was immense.


Morkel to Tiwary, 1 run, wisely lands this outside off, Tiwary dabs a single to point.

Morkel to Pathan, 1 run, back of a length on off stump, Yusuf dabs a single backward of point for a single. The throw from point thuds into him as he looks to complete the run. Ouch.

Morkel to ten Doeschate, SIX, oh boy, I don't think I've seen a ball ever go so high. RTD jumps half forward, swings the bat in a wild circle and jabs the length ball into orbit. The Kotla crowd crinks its collective neck looking into the skies before the satellite begins its descent and lands just a couple of metres over the straight boundary. That got a lot of height, and enough distrance.


Morkel to ten Doeschate, FOUR, top shot. Morne keeps this full on off stump, inches away from a yorker than ball, and RTD spanks it back down the ground. He stood back in the crease to work the lengths there, and reaped the reward.


Morkel to ten Doeschate, OUT, Irfan has held another catch! And this one was pretty good too. RTD looks to hoist Morne over the covers this time, and ends up hitting it high into the night. Irfan runs in from deep point and holds on as he tumbles forward.
