View dismissal SR Watson c †Ouma b Odhiambo 21 32 17 3 1 123.52
7.2 84.6 mph, caught! And such a late celebratory reaction from the keeper! That was short and wide from Odhiambo, but he got the ball to bounce a touch more. Watson went for the cut and got a thick edge through to the keeper, who had to take it over his head 38/1
View dismissal BJ Haddin c Patel b Kamande 65 109 79 9 1 82.27
24.4 54.9 mph, caught at deep midwicket! Haddin moves forward, picks up the ball from outside off and swings it high and straight to the man on the deep midwicket boundary 127/2
View dismissal RT Ponting* lbw b CO Obuya 36 83 54 5 0 66.66
25.4 49.9 mph, loud appeal for lbw as Ponting attempts to work the ball on the leg side but misses and gets hit on the pad. The umpire says not out and Kenya want a review. That one didn't turn, was going straight through. A terrific review it is for that was hitting middle and leg. 131/3
View dismissal MJ Clarke c Patel b Odhiambo 93 109 80 7 1 116.25
48.1 68.6 mph, whoops, he's holed out to long-on. Clarke tried to launch a full ball over the man on the long-on boundary. He didn't get enough elevation or distance and Patel took a fine catch at shin height. That was travelling to him quickly and Clarke's World Cup average comes down a notch or two ... 304/6
View dismissal CL White b Kamande 2 6 6 0 0 33.33
26.6 oh wow! Did Kamande become Murali? White is shocked and with good reason. That ball pitched a long way outside off and spun viciously into the right-hander. White pushed forward in defence and the ball spun past his bat and hit off and middle. More middle than off. Was there an inside edge on to the stumps? I'm not yet sure ... There was no inside edge, simply spun massively between bat and pad. 143/4
View dismissal MEK Hussey c DO Obuya b Odhiambo 54 72 43 4 0 125.58
43.1 caught at long-on! The length was a touch full, the line was outside off and the pace might have been a touch slower. Hussey drags the ball from outside off towards David Obuya who ran in a bit and took the catch. Hussey was aiming to hit it straighter ... 257/5
SPD Smith not out 17 32 15 2 0 113.33

View dismissal MA Ouma c †Haddin b Lee 4 14 13 0 0 30.76
2.5 88.4 mph, edged ... and taken! Lee follows the bouncer with a full ball that begins to swing away from the batsman from around off stump. Ouma chases after it with the drive and edges to Haddin who takes a simple catch. Excellent ball after that bouncer. Full and swinging at pace. 12/1
View dismissal AA Obanda b Tait 14 20 10 0 2 140.00
3.6 85.3 mph, bowled him! Tait bowls a fast full toss. That was there to be hit and Obanda wanted to send it over the leg-side boundary. He missed it though and the ball crashed into middle stump 21/2
CO Obuya not out 98 199 129 9 3 75.96
View dismissal DO Obuya run out (Hussey/†Haddin) 12 27 16 2 0 75.00
9.4 from Johnson, there's a mix-up between the brothers and David Obuya is run out. David pushed the ball off his hips towards midwicket and sprinted for the run. Collins, perhaps seeing that Hussey was sprinting towards the ball from square leg with no signs of hamstring trouble, did not want the run. David kept coming and by the time he stopped and turned, Hussey had reached the ball. his throw to Haddin was good and David had to go. 46/3
View dismissal T Mishra run out (Clarke) 72 92 89 8 1 80.89
35.3 Watson to CO Obuya, tragic way to go, Mishra is run out. It was perhaps the only way Australia were going to strike. Obuya dabbed the ball towards backward point and the batsmen decided to take on Clarke. Bad move. He swooped on the ball and hit the stumps direct at the striker's end. Well played Mishra, an innings ended by a bad decision to run. He's made his highest ODI score today. 161/4
View dismissal TM Odoyo b Tait 35 59 38 4 1 92.10
47.3 92.0 mph, bowled him, middle stump lies flat. Odoyo backs away to swing, Tait bowls a full and straight ball. It beat Odoyo for pace and uprooted middle stump 247/5
View dismissal RR Patel run out (Krejza/Tait) 6 10 7 1 0 85.71
49.4 Tait to CO Obuya, hit straight back down to long-on and Obuya runs back for the second. But the throw from the deep is good and Tait, even though he took an age to remove the bails, does it in the nick of time to run out Patel. Only one for Obuya, who has the strike though 263/6
