Bravo to Morgan, no run, Morgan gets his front foot out of the way and swings, but picks out deep mid off and they turn down the single

Bravo to Morgan, 1 leg bye, Morgan can't connect with the heave, but Wright charges through and Fletcher behind the stumps can't get round to collect the ball in time and they pick up a leg bye

16.5

Bravo to Morgan, 2 runs, Morgan shuffles across and flicks the ball out to long leg, but Benn gets around to cut it off before the rope

16.6

Bravo to Morgan, SIX, another six for Morgan! He stayed deep in the crease, shuffling across and sending the ball in an arc way, way over square leg. Very powerful, wristy pull off the front foot gets him a maximum!

England 145/4   EJG Morgan 35* (26b 1x4 2x6)

17.3

Rampaul to Morgan, SIX, six more! Morgan takes full toll of the free hit to send the ball straight back over Rampaul's head!

17.4

Rampaul to Morgan, FOUR, Unbelievable! Extraordinary! What kind of a shot is that? He's just stood at the crease and reverse-lapped a half volley on off stump over short third man and away to the ropes. Morgan is enjoying himself here

17.5

Rampaul to Morgan, 2 runs, hammered away square this time

17.6

Rampaul to Morgan, 1 run, more length from Rampaul, and Morgan runs the ball down to third man in a surprisingly orthodox manner

18.3

Benn to Morgan, 2 runs, edged away, and first slip would have lapped that up, but Morgan collects two and that's his fifty. A superbly-paced knock, just what England needed from him

18.5

19.2

Bravo to Morgan, OUT, and he's out this time! Bravo dished the ball up on off stump and Morgan threw everything at it. It's six or sticks at this stage, but he couldn't quite get the elevation or distance, and Pollard took a good tumbling catch running in from the boundary
