31.1 overs (0 Run) A bit of comedy! Morgan looks to go after Naib. He skips down the track but does not get the desired length. He looks to jam it out but gets an inside edge onto the pads and then the ball rolls towards the off side. Morgan wants a run but then is sent back. The bowler initially goes for it but the fielder from point gets to it before the bowler. He scores a direct hit but Morgan is well in despite dropping his bat. Replays later on show that the bowler almost pulled Morgan back, it was playfully but would have been interesting if Morgan would have been short due to that.
