It goes high up in the air towards deep mid-wicket. Zadran initially runs in, then realizes that the ball is going over his head. He tracks back and looks to take it with one hand but fails to do so. To add salt to the wound, it trickles over the fence. This could prove very costly as we all know how dangerous Morgan can be.
35.1 overs (2 Runs) Once again Rashid is too short and width is offered. Morgan goes back and slaps it through cover for two. 200 up for England.
