Morkel to Jaffer, no run, 137 km on a good length around off stump, Kallis can't do much with that but defend on the off side

1.4

Morkel to Jaffer, FOUR, dropped!, that's poor judgment from Amit on the fine-leg boundary, Jaffer flicked the half-volley on the pads in the air towards fine leg, Amit ran in two far and then had to jump as the ball sailed over his head, it pitched once before going over the boundary

3.2

Morkel to Uthappa, 1 run, short of a length angling into the batsman, Uthappa stays in his crease and defends towards point, Jadeja fields and unleashes a throw at the bowler's end, he scores a direct hit but concedes an overthrow off the rebound, that was quite needless

13.1

Morkel to van der Merwe, FOUR, Roelof stands in his crease and cuts a short and wide ball over point for four, Bangalore desperately need momentum

Morkel to van der Merwe, 1 run, Roelof waits on the back foot and glances the ball towards third man

13.5

Morkel to Kohli, no run, super ball, Morkel finds the length that makes Virat unsure of whether to play on the front or back foot, he fends and gets beaten outside off

13.6

Royal Challengers Bangalore 72/5   M Morkel 3-0-19-0
17.1

Morkel to Kumar, no run, Praveen backs away to make room (or maybe he was getting out of the line of the ball!) and slashes, he gets beaten by the pace and bounce

17.2

Morkel to Kumar, OUT, he's run him out! Morkel bowled a full and straight delivery, Praveen hit it straight back to the bowler and incredibly set off for the run, what was he thinking, Morkel took a moment, perhaps in disbelief, and then threw down the stumps at the striker's end, Praveen actually didn't know where the ball had gone after the yorker hit him on the boot

P Kumar run out 7 (4b 0x4 1x6) SR: 175.00
