View dismissal MA Ouma lbw b Kulasekara 1 7 7 0 0 14.28
1.2 Kula strikes with his second delivery! that inward movement from a length, he was pushing forward outside the line, was struck on the knee roll in front of the stumps, umpire gave him out right away, Ouma goes for the review, but that is hitting middle of middle, and Kenya's troubles continue 4/1
View dismissal SR Waters lbw b Malinga 3 12 4 0 0 75.00
2.1 Waters is gone! Malinga gets one of those lethal indipping yorkers bang on target, right on the toes, Waters is hurled in the air with the impact, and goes down on all fours, no one has any doubts about where that was heading, not even Waters, who gets up and starts walking back, no review from Kenya 8/2
View dismissal CO Obuya b Malinga 52 121 100 4 0 52.00
31.4 that's almost the perfect yorker. Collins is on his way. The sling is in. Malinga's catapult side-arm action means it marginally tails away as it comes out of his hand before the laws of fluid dynamics take over. Around halfway down it begins to move in. Collins knows he's in trouble, he tries to cover the line. The ball tails in some more. The bat comes down. Too late, and not playing down the right line. The base of off stump takes a hammering. 102/3
View dismissal DO Obuya c Samaraweera b Muralitharan 51 158 106 3 0 48.11
40.1 46.2 mph, Murali jogs in, and bowls a flighted one from round the stumps, he goes down for the slog sweep, and picks out the man at deep midwicket with precision, looped away high in the air and came down in his hands nicely, Obuya is gone 127/5
View dismissal SO Tikolo c Dilshan b Mathews 7 20 17 1 0 41.17
36.2 Dilshan plucks a rocket out of the air, and is mighty pleased with it, it was short and wide, Angelo is lucky to get that one, it was bashed off the back foot hard and scorched its way to Dilshan at point. who took it cleanly around chest height, Angelo smiles, Tikolo walks back 120/4
View dismissal T Mishra lbw b Malinga 0 28 13 0 0 0.00
41.6 Malinga was trying this when he was firing in those full tosses, gets it right this time, the yorker crashes into the boot, too bad he could not get it out of the way, the umpire gave him the finger, but Kenya go for the review, Malinga is too tight there with the front foot, was it a no-ball, was there some part of the foot behind the landing crease, the ball then moved in late, and would have gone on to just strike leg stump, graze it as it were, the on-field call stands, it's not a no-ball, it is hitting leg, and Mishra's misery is over 137/7
View dismissal JK Kamande* run out (Silva) 1 4 3 0 0 33.33
41.1 from Malinga, what's that? is it a plane? is it a bird? is it Rhodes? no it's Chamara Silva, a steaming yorker from Malinga, just about dug out by the batsman, but they make the mistake of attempting the single, Silva runs in from midwicket, picks up the ball, and goes flying in to stumps horizontally at the striker's end, catching the batsman way out of his ground, as the replays confirm 128/6
NN Odhiambo not out 8 15 10 2 0 80.00
View dismissal PJ Ongondo b Malinga 0 3 1 0 0 0.00
43.1 89.5 mph, 144 kph yorker, make way, that is headed only one way, the middle stump is shaken out of its stupor, no chance for the batsman, this is Malinga at his lethal best, want yorker, get yorker, on demand, any time 137/8
View dismissal SO Ngoche b Malinga 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
43.2 89.1 mph, take a bow, Lasith Malinga, it's a hat-trick, he had got one on the last ball of his previous over, homes in on middle stump, nothing can stop it, least of all poor Shem Ngoche, who was just about expecting this, but could not do anything to stop it, it scorches its way past the gap between bat and pad, the shatterer of stumps has five 137/9
View dismissal E Otieno b Malinga 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
43.4 89.2 mph, it's all over for Kenya, they have been blown away by the marauder, another one sears in on the stumps, nothing can be done about it, it's destined to knock the leg stump out of its position, and does so, the batsman is only a sideshow, everything else is a sideshow, it is only Malinga, the ball, and the stumps, six wickets for the champion, the crowd roar their lungs out, got to feel for Kenya, their only mistake was to come in the way of Malinga and his targets 142/10

8.2 Dilshan's perished to his uncontrollable aggression. He was setting himself up to hit a four or a six, irrespective of where the ball was. It was a pretty good short ball, directed at his body. Dilshan's arrested his huge backlift, and tried late to fend it to the off side, but the best thing to do with that ball would have been to defend or leave. He ended up squeezing it to the keeper. 72/1
