93.2

Swann to Morkel, no run, It's review again. massive lbw appeal from England given not out, Morkel popped forward and it rapped him on the pads, replay shows it clipping, not hitting, leg stump so the not out decision stands.

95.4

Swann to Morkel, no run, forward more confidently this time, and smothered

95.5

Swann to Morkel, no run, loose and precarious. A flat-footed swish and Morkel is living dangerously

95.6

Swann to Morkel, OUT, well, that you have to say was coming. Morkel was bamboozled for five deliveries, and this one finally pins him in front of off. He calls for the review, but it's a futile gesture. That struck him on the shin, and that is curtains
