10.1 Richards to Odoyo, FOUR, Flighted and BANG! Odoyo lofted it back down the ground for a boundary.
10.2 Richards to Odoyo, 1 run, Short and cut to the sweeper on the point boundary.
10.3 Richards to Kemp, 0 runs, Fuller and pushed back to Richards.
10.4 Richards to Kemp, FOUR, Down the track and BANG! He took up the challenge and cleared Gough at mid-on, and the ball raced away for 4.
10.5 Richards to Kemp, 1 run, Flighted and driven to long-off.
10.6 Richards to Odoyo, 1 bye, A bit of turn to beat the bat and the 'keeper. They scrambled through for 1.
The batsmen started to size up Richards here. How long will Gough trust his spinners?

At least for another over, it seems. Here's Morris again...
11.1 Morris to Odoyo, OUT, Morris strikes with his first ball again! He's got 2 now! Pitched outside legstump and spinning into the pads, and Odoyo flicked it into the lap of DeSilva at short midwicket. That's a much easier catch than the first one. Rabid Wolves strike again!
TM Odoyo c DeSilva b Morris 6 (8)
Partnership 12 (JM Kemp 5, TM Odoyo 6)
Masters XI 60/7 (11.1 overs)
The vice-captain comes to the crease with his team in desperate trouble. Rabid Wolves are running away with this game so far.
11.2 Morris to Warne, 0 runs, A leading edge that didn't carry to the bowler. No run.
11.3 Morris to Warne, 2 runs, Flicked away. Great chase by DeSilva and he saved 2 runs there.
11.4 Morris to Warne, FOUR, Way too short there. A long hop that Warne dispatched past short fine leg and it was a welcome boundary.
Morris over the wicket...
11.5 Morris to Warne, 1 run, Flat on offstump and driven to long-on.
11.6 Morris to Kemp, 1 run, Late cut to the right of short third man for a quick run.
End of over 12 (8 runs) - Masters XI 68/7

Richards is out of the attack for the return of Sean Bennett. Flight traded for flat spin.

12.2 Bennett to Kemp, 0 runs, He tried the sweep again but it went straight to short fine leg and they didn't risk the run.
12.3 Bennett to Kemp, 0 runs, Hard hit, but he picked out short extra cover.
12.4 Bennett to Kemp, 1 run, A single to short third man.
12.5 Bennett to Warne, 0 runs, Flat and into the toes and Warne had to block it out.
12.6 Bennett to Warne, 0 runs, Even quicker this time - 68mph - and blocked back to Bennett.
A good comeback over by Bennett. Defensive bowling, but it did the trick in keeping it tight.
End of over 13 (3 runs) - Masters XI 71/7
JM Kemp 17* (20b) SA Bennett 2-0-12-0

Masters XI continue to labour. They need to make a move soon, but with 3 wickets left, they seem a bit hesitant just yet.

Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."
