Kenya v New Zealand

New Zealand won by 10 wickets (with 252 balls remaining)

13.3

Bennett to Ouma, 1 wide, looks for the magic full delivery again, but sprays it down the leg side

13.3

Bennett to Ouma, no run, Ouma plays with a high backlift, like many West Indies batsmen, and pushes out a length ball towards point

13.4

Bennett to Ouma, 1 leg bye, gets one to land on a length and go on to strike him on the pads as he shuffles across too much, the umpire thought the ball was also doing too much, and they some runs as the ball goes wide of fine leg

Kenya 44/3   MA Ouma 0* (2b)

14.1

Vettori to Ouma, no run, gets forward to the pitch of a full delivery and drives to extra cover

14.2

Vettori to Ouma, 1 run, very full from Dan, he squeezes it out to mid off, and they take the tight single, even as the throw is wide of the keeper

Kenya 45/4   MA Ouma 1* (4b)

15.2

Bennett to Ouma, no run, gets it off the toe end of the bat as he looks to leave one in the channel outside off stump, slip tidies up

15.3

Bennett to Ouma, OUT, Bennett is on fire, and Kenya are wilting under the heat, it was very full and quick, Ouma was late on the attempted flick, and the bat was late in coming in front of pad, up went the finger, but hello, replays show he was struck comfortably outside the line of off stump, but Kenya decided not to review it, well if they reviewed the plumb leg before of Obuya, they could have done this one too, but alas, they don't, and are five down one short of 50

MA Ouma lbw b Bennett 1 (12m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

Kenya 49/5   MA Ouma 1 (6b)
