Yeah he looked really good, didn't he? Showed he was ready to concede a few overs to Asif and Aamer before digging into the second line of attack. It helped that Akmal just wouldn't come up a bit further and that Pakistan were out of referrals because they would've definitely referred the LBW shout off the bowling of Malik-Mirza.

What I liked most about him was he had really good footwork against the spinners. He was at ease coming down the wicket, going right back, or extending fully to reach the pitch of the ball. That one boundary against the turn off Kaneria bowling around the wicket was magnificent.

The Reverse Sweep

Yes, Mahek Morgan looked good. It was a good week for number six batsmen with raina getting a hundred on debut. Although, I'd have fancied making a ton on that pitch!

bernard coughlan

My grandfather and four of his brothers were Irish hurlers, like Morgan (they were the Coughlans who played for the great uncle Udie [Ugene wikipedia] was voted best hurler of all time) I'm London Irish and love both England and cricket... so many of Morgans shots are straight out of hurling ...the low stance, the overhead flips,..moving his head!!! the reverse sweep.. bowl him a full toss and you are fecked!. Makes him good in the field too following a moving target.....
Just glad he doesn't grab the ball and run with it now and again!
