They have actually explained that insident quite well. The ball is dead once it has been caught and controlled AND the batsmen have settled in their creases. In that case Morne was still busy finding has balance and has not stopped moving. It was actually Morne's own "moving and instability" after he played the shot, that opened the door for Prior.
To me the "unsporting" play by the Pomms were there constant intimidating bowling at Steyn and Morkel. To me it was almost as if they were out to injure Steyn at one stage. All within the rules but IMO there is a fine line between intimidated bowling and malicious bowling. Granted, Steyn and Morkel did dish it out as well, but that was more in retaliation in my view.
