Hendricks angles in a full ball on middle, Morgan tries to smoke his slog sweep over wide long on but fails to get enough meat behind the shot. Bavuma makes no mistake in the deep. The umpire goes upstairs to check for the front foot no ball. Beuran is JUST fine.

  • 12:55 AM IST

    Morgan holes out! But the umpire wants to check the front foot. The replays show that it’s touch and go. Too close to say. The third umpire also checks the back leg but it never cut the side crease.

  • 12:53 AM IST

    18.5 Beuran Hendricks to Eoin Morgan, SIX, SIX! This is absolutely incredible from Eoin Morgan! 14 off the last three balls and the equation is now 7 off 7! Hendricks delivers it full and outside off, Morgan makes room and pumps it all the way over covers for a maximum.
