Unclear commentary

Trocard to Morgan : [runout] Played past point and the batsmen decide to take on the fielder. Sadly they are both watching the ball and collide. A wild throw comes in and is taken by DaCosta mid-pitch, who has the presence of mind to select the correct end and throw down the stumps.
K. Morgan run out (E. Lloyd) 2 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR:200.00

Maybe I'm being stupid but I can't really quite figure out what's going on here - I can buy the batsmen colliding running for a 3rd, but the guy who actually gets the run out isn't mentioned in the line at all (E.Lloyd), and it's only the keeper DaCosta who is, which might mislead people into thinking he's the one who gets the run out (and it's mentioned the keeper throws down the stumps so it's debateable as to whether DaCosta should be credited with the run out anyway?).

It's a bit messy is what I'm trying to say.

I'm counting the days until I inevitably get the two mixed up and buy an expensive transfer target for the wrong team.

I agree with your first statement :lol:

That line is one of the original ones and no-one ever brought it up before
I have changed it to run out by keeper which does make more sense
