2.1

5.1

5.5

NL McCullum to Obanda, no run, fired in on leg stump, too much for the batsman who pushes it back to the bowler

Kenya 12/0   AA Obanda 5* (14b)
6.1

Southee to Obanda, no run, Kenya are not attempting anything but survival right now, another fullish ball on the stumps is dug out down the track, Southee leaps and fields

6.2

Southee to Obanda, 1 run, alright there is an attempt to break free, but he was late on the pull to the short ball, and hit it towards mid on

6.4

Southee to Obanda, no run, takes another one on the pads, this time pretty high, leg sidish from Southee but he could do nothing about it

6.5

Southee to Obanda, no run, this one is dug in, and takes off, just past the batsman's head who attempts a weak pull, and goes nowhere with it

6.6

Southee to Obanda, OUT, finally Southee gets some reward for some tight bowling, this one was pitched on a length, and went on with the angle to hit Obanda on the pads, New Zealand went up, so too did umpire Erasmus' finger, looked to be heading towards leg stump, but replays show it bouncing just over the top of the stumps, Kenya haven't gone for the review

AA Obanda lbw b Southee 6 (27m 19b 0x4 0x6) SR: 31.57

Kenya 14/1   AA Obanda 6 (19b)
