JO Ochieng lbw b Vanua 22 (31b 2x4 0x6) SR: 70.96

Match State: Drinks

So we have the Kenyian team very much in the same position as when PNG batted. Its going to take a good partnership from here to take them to the target.

36.3

Vanua to Savala, OUT, its all over. Savala played all around a straight ball. It hit him on the pads and all the team goes up. Umpire Smith raises the finger. Savala is out for a golden duck!

RH Savala lbw b Vanua 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

So PNG win this game by 66 runs. Both teams lost lots of early wickets and PNG recovered and Kenya didnt. Allan was the pick of the Kenyian batsmen, once he got out the wickets just kept tumbling. It wasnt because of good bowling either. There was just a number of poor shots to some shoddy bowling. Both Vanua and Kent got three wicket each. The difference between the two teams was the 82 scored by Tom. He came in at number 9 and changed the game. He has just been named man of the match.

So todays result means that both teams have won two and lost three. Tomorrow we have a rest day so the next round of games will be on Friday. Thats just leaves me to thank you for following my coverage today, this is Justin Smyth saying goodbye from Sunny Strabane.
