9,10,11 November 2011 (5-day match)
  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100

Morkel to Haddin, no run, short and pacy outside off, climbing away steeply outside off, Haddin lets it go.


Morkel to Haddin, FOUR, what a hoick to get going. Short and wide outside off, Haddin smashes it away with cartoonish impetuosity. He stands tall, lifts one foot in the air and launches this towards third man.


Morkel to Haddin, 1 run, gets a single to end the over, which means he faces Steyn now.

Australia 163/5   BJ Haddin 5* (3b 1x4)

Steyn to Haddin, no run, 144 kph, short of a length, buzzing away from wide of off stump. Haddin stays rooted at the crease and swishes wildly at it, but it is through him.


Steyn to Haddin, no run, Haddin is absolutely #pwned by this one, and he knows he just wasn't good enough to nick it. Pacy, on the perfect length around middle and off and then zipping away like an inebriated college student. Haddin wasn't forward, and tried driving down the line, but the ball was in a different zip code.


Steyn to Haddin, no run, tries the dream ball that zips away from leg stump, but sprays it down the leg side.


Steyn to Haddin, no run, he's caught on the crease again, gets across but not forward as he tries to cover the line. Too good, this, from Steyn.


Steyn to Haddin, OUT, ah well, Aus are in big trouble now. Haddin's gone, not learning the lesson from the previous two balls. Stays on the crease again as Steyn gets fuller and closer to off stump to ensure Haddin doesn't play and miss this time. Haddin obliges, gets across and thrusts the bat well in front of the body to get a big outside edge on a rather ambitious drive, into gully's hands. 300? 200 is looking miles away now.

BJ Haddin c Prince b Steyn 5 (8m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 62.50
