West Indies 2/0   M Morkel 1-1-0-0
3.1

Morkel to Gayle, FOUR, short, looking for the ribs, bowls a bit too much down the leg side, nicely glanced away, Steyn makes a diving save at fine leg, but the replays show he touched the rope while fielding the ball. Good effort, though

3.2

Morkel to Gayle, no run, short again, around the ribs again, defended back to him

3.3

Morkel to Gayle, 1 run, fuller this time, gets the outside half of his bat, past cover

3.4

Morkel to Richards, no run, short outside off, nice bounce, left alone

3.5

Morkel to Richards, OUT, Morkel has struck! Richards has missed the review trick here, or has he? This is fuller, perhaps the first length ball Morkel has bowled to Richards, and he plays across the line, and is hit on the back leg. Everthing looks right with the appeal, except that it has hit him over the knee roll, which is pretty close to the stumps, so not much distance to travel. Richards has a word with Gayle, and decides against challenging that call. The replays show it would have hit the top of the stumps, so a good call from Taufel and from Richards

DM Richards lbw b Morkel 0 (10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

3.6

Morkel to Deonarine, no run, full outside off, left alone

West Indies 12/1   M Morkel 2-1-5-1
5.1

Morkel to Deonarine, no run, nicely behind the length delivery to defend it

5.2

Morkel to Deonarine, no run, short outside leg, left alone

5.3

Morkel to Deonarine, no run, keeps it short, tucking him up, Deonarine defends it back to Morkel

5.4

Morkel to Deonarine, no run, fuller, Deonarine is on the back foot, but defends it well towards mid-on

5.5

Morkel to Deonarine, no run, shorter again, Deonarine right behind it and defends

5.6

Morkel to Deonarine, no run, short of a length again, patted back by Deonarine who is on his toes

West Indies 21/2   M Morkel 3-2-5-1
10.1

Morkel to Deonarine, no run, short, but down the leg side, Boucher has to produce a dive to collect that

10.2

Morkel to Deonarine, no run, short into the body, tucked back to the bowler

10.3

Morkel to Deonarine, 2 runs, too full, and he plays the push-off-drive, keeping bat and pad close together, not worrying about the power into the shot

10.4

Morkel to Deonarine, no run, angled across him, and he leaves this one alone, quite an extravagant leave he has, lunges almost Ponting-style before shouldering arms and sort of squaring up

10.5

Morkel to Deonarine, no run, lets this fullish delivery be, outside off

10.6

Morkel to Deonarine, FOUR, overpitched outside off, gets close to it and drives it with an open face, past cover, this time gets four for it

West Indies 38/2   M Morkel 4-2-11-1
12.1

Morkel to Chanderpaul, no run, Chanders covers the off-stump line before leaving this one alone

12.2

Morkel to Chanderpaul, no run, and again, nicely covers the off stump and then shoulders arms

12.3

Morkel to Chanderpaul, 2 runs, plays at this one, short outside off, shuffles across, thinks he is close enough, and then opens the face, and keeps it along the ground and in the gap between third slip and gully

12.4

Morkel to Chanderpaul, SIX, Harris at fine leg perhaps didn't pick it as early as he would have liked. Chanders went for the pull, there was extra bounce in it, and the top edge flew fine of fine leg, Harris struggled to pick the line of it, and his lunge in the end couldn't get him to the ball

12.5

Morkel to Chanderpaul, 3 runs, a much more controlled pull, gets back and across and pulls it along the ground, rolling his wrists on it, and in front of square

12.6

Morkel to Deonarine, no run, left alone outside off, and time for drinks

West Indies 50/2   M Morkel 5-2-22-1
14.1

Morkel to Deonarine, no run, well directed short one from round the stumps, going for the throat-face area, Deonarine has to act swiftly to get out of its way. Morkel has already found Deonarine's helmet twice in this series

14.2

Morkel to Deonarine, no run, slightly fuller, defends this one well

14.3

Morkel to Deonarine, no run, even fuller, around off, played back to the bowler

14.4

Morkel to Deonarine, no run, gets the width, cuts, but finds backward point

14.5

Morkel to Deonarine, FOUR, very nice delivery, not short, not full, around off, making him play, but Deonarine's soft hands mean the edge doesn't fly, and it also finds the gap between slips and gully

14.6

Morkel to Deonarine, no run, gets on his toes to defend this one

West Indies 56/2   M Morkel 6-2-26-1
30.1

Morkel to Deonarine, FOUR, Deonarine has lost his partner in the first over after lunch, and has flashed at the first delivery he faces after the break. Luckily for him, it flies wide of point for four

30.2

Morkel to Deonarine, no run, tucks him up with this one, defended back to the bowler

30.3

Morkel to Deonarine, no run, better this time, leaves this alone, although for a brief moment he shaped up for the cut

30.4

Morkel to Deonarine, FOUR, flashes again, and this one flies over slips, strange mindset after nearly one full session of hard work

30.5

Morkel to Deonarine, FOUR, this one was a loose delivery, half-volley outside off, and he sends it smashing to the cover boundary

30.6

Morkel to Deonarine, no run, left alone outside off this time - except for that ball, Deonarine's attitude after lunch is similar to how he played in St Kitts, and it cost him his wicket there

West Indies 90/3   M Morkel 7-2-38-1
32.1

Morkel to Deonarine, 2 runs, nicely tucked away off the ribs, square of fine leg for two

32.2

Morkel to Deonarine, no run, back of a length, around off, defended

32.3

Morkel to Deonarine, no run, nice lifter, gets big outside off, he stays inside the line

32.4

Morkel to Deonarine, 1 run, well this should answer some questions, goes after this widish delivery, hits it powerfully just to wide of mid-off

32.5

Morkel to Bravo, no run, back of a length, good bounce around off, Bravo is on his toes while defending this

32.6

Morkel to Bravo, no run, down the leg side, no need to play at that

West Indies 93/4   M Morkel 8-2-41-1
34.1

Morkel to Bravo, no run, oooh, movement away as it passes the bat, but there is no edge. Was dug in back of a length, got Bravo to hop, and then left him

34.2

Morkel to Bravo, no run, this is closer to the stumps, into his body, just a short, Bravo keeps it down

34.3

Morkel to Bravo, no run, tries the surprise fuller delivery, but angles it down the leg side

34.4

Morkel to Bravo, no run, back of a length again, just outside off, Bravo defends, keeps it down, could have left that alone actually

34.5

Morkel to Bravo, FOUR, again the fuller ball is strayed down the leg side, and is also a half-volley, and Bravo clips it away for four

34.6

Morkel to Bravo, no run, short outside off, this time Bravo is not interested in doing anything with it

West Indies 99/4   M Morkel 9-2-45-1
36.1

Morkel to Bravo, no run, back of a length, defended to cover

36.2

Morkel to Bravo, 2 runs, slightly fuller, outside off, push-drives it, there is no mid-off, they come back for two

36.3

Morkel to Bravo, no run, short, into the body, he evades this one

36.4

Morkel to Bravo, no run, fuller, just outside off, pushed, but can't get past it the straightish extra cover

36.5

Morkel to Bravo, 1 run, shorter, pushed wide of point for one

36.6

Morkel to Deonarine, no run, full, just outside off, doesn't make a good connection, and ends up playing it back to Morkel
