ICC World Twenty20 - 15th match, Group E

South Africa v England

South Africa won by 19 runs

7.1

7.2

M Morkel to Shah, no run, pushed to extra cover and a quick run

7.3

M Morkel to Shah, 1 run, pulled to deep midwicket

7.4

7.5

M Morkel to Prior, FOUR, he leans back and cuts in the air for a one-bounce four behind square

England 42/3   M Morkel 1-0-5-0

9.1

M Morkel to Shah, 2 runs, punched through the covers to the man in the deep

9.2

M Morkel to Shah, no run, the ugly heave syndrome has now spread to Shah ... the ball goes nowhere

9.3

M Morkel to Shah, 2 leg byes, Shah steps so far to the off that when it hits him he is well outside the line, the ball spears off his pads into the on side

9.4

M Morkel to Shah, 1 run, textbook yorker, Shah digs it out and a quick run as the ball trundles into the leg side

9.5

M Morkel to Prior, no run, Prior heads to leg, so much so that he almost overbalances, a yorker-length ball just outside off leaves him looking very clumsy

9.6

M Morkel to Prior, 1 run, angled to third man ... and he keeps the strike

England 59/3   M Morkel 2-0-9-0

17.1

M Morkel to Flintoff, 1 leg bye, short and Flintoff comes across from outside off and swivels round in trying to pull the ball square

17.3

M Morkel to Snape, no run, down leg, misses it, and the ball veers just wide of leg

17.4

M Morkel to Snape, OUT, that's it for Snape; the pressure told after all, with a drive straight to cover
