17.2

Morkel to Uthappa, FOUR, no reward for the bowler here, the batsman was skipping away from leg stump, Morkel follows him and pings in a yorker, an inside-edge from the batsman is enpouh to send it past fine leg for four

17.3

Morkel to Uthappa, FOUR, four more, and more credit to the batsman this time, powered down the ground, the fielder at long-on, Yogesh Nagar, made a valiant attempt to stop that one, diving to get a hand on it but he can only deflect it on to the rope

19.1

Morkel to Pandey, 4 byes, a yorker for Morkel, brilliant delivery from him, heading down the leg side, bounces between the batsman's legs and slides down, keeper can't get to it though and that's four byes, Morkel is frustrated

19.2

Morkel to Pandey, 1 run, an inch-perfect yorker from Morkel, squeezed towards third man for a single, this is the highest partnership of the season

19.3

Morkel to Uthappa, 2 runs, bottom hand comes off as he looks to swing that one, doesn't get enough on it but it lands well short of mid-on, batsmen are quick to take two

19.4

Morkel to Uthappa, 1 run, superb take from the keeper, full and just outside off, a thick inside-edge as the batsman looks to power it through the off side, bounces after the edge on the way through to the keeper, Naman Ojha flings himself to his left to collect that, there's an appeal for caught-behind, but the replays clearly show it bounced soon after taking the edge
