47.3

Malinga to JA Morkel, FOUR, short of length ball from Malinga, Albie gets a big stride in and slams that wide of long-on for four, not been the best of days for Malinga this

47.4

Malinga to JA Morkel, 1 run, better from Malinga, a yorker outside off, squeezed towards backward point, Thirimanne fires it in at the bowler's end, he misses what could have been a run-out, possibility of an over throw as the ball goes towards long-on, but the batsmen had run too far beyond the crease
