21 May 2013 - night match (20-over match)

Morkel to Tare, no run, full-toss on the middle stump and almost surprises the batsman, hits it back to him off the toe of the bat and rolls over to mid-off


Morkel to Tare, no run, fuller on his pads and looks to flick it away, misses the bat and hits his pads, rolls back to the bowler and he still wants a single, sees it early enough and gets back


Morkel to Tare, 2 runs, he was looking to go over the top there, gives himself room by going across to the leg stump, hits it over mid-off alright but gets a little more elevation than he would have liked, Morris gives it a good chase and pulls it back


Morkel to Tare, OUT, and now he's gone, caught at mid-on! was looking to get it over the in-field yet again, it was full enough to smash it but the ball did not smack the middle of the bat and it's lobbed gently for the fielder at mid-on, straight-forward catch pouched there

AP Tare c Vijay b Morkel 7 (8m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00


Morkel to Karthik, no run, fuller from the bowler and that's defended off the front foot to the off side


Morkel to Karthik, no run, shortens his length and that's slow as well, was looking to flick it away but gets it back to the bowler who skips over to his right to field it

Mumbai Indians 12/1   JA Morkel 1-0-2-1

Morkel to Smith, 1 run, fuller on his pads and tucked away to deep mid-wicket for a single


Morkel to Karthik, 1 run, short of length and he pulls it away but does not come off the middle of the ball, rolls over to the leg side for a single


Morkel to Smith, 1 wide, down the leg side and he was looking to pull it away, was short enough to do that too but it angles further down and does not get any bat on it, through to the keeper for a wide


Morkel to Smith, FOUR, that's fuller and it's been given a serious tap through mid-off for a four, was hit straighter too and to the right of the fielder there


Morkel to Smith, 1 leg bye, drifts on to his pads this time, fuller too and wants to flick it away, misses, hits his pads and the batsmen rush across for a leg-bye


Morkel to Karthik, 1 run, short of length and tucked away to the leg side for a single


Morkel to Smith, 1 leg bye, and again, how many of these have been pitched right up to the bat but on his pads and how many has he missed! again hits his pads and rolls over to the off side

Mumbai Indians 27/1   JA Morkel 2-0-10-1

Morkel to Smith, no run, shorter in length and on the off stump line, pushed to mid-off


Morkel to Smith, FOUR, finally, he's been drifting too many down on his pads and Smith's been missing 'em, this time he gets it off the middle of the bat and gets it through backward square-leg for a four


Morkel to Smith, 2 runs, continues to bowl that line and again, Smith gets it off the middle of the bat through to deep square-leg for a couple of runs, Jadeja gets the ball in quick


Morkel to Smith, FOUR, no, he's not changing his line and Smith's got the hang of it, gets it over mid-wicket, and helps himself to an easy boundary


Morkel to Smith, FOUR, spanked, back over the bowler and despite the presence of a long-on fielder, he's beaten him for a four, was a length ball, he gives himself room and smashes him!


Morkel to Smith, 2 runs, missed! that was one of the worst balls he could have bowled, full-toss and on the pads, probably a tad too high for Smith to flick it away and gets bit of a leading edge through to long-on

Mumbai Indians 56/1   JA Morkel 3-0-26-1
