4.2

Southee to Waters, no run, for the first time, Southee offers a lot of width outside off stump, but he fails to capitalise, a hint of away shape, just a hint, bit of bounce too, the attempted cut remains only an attempt

4.3

Southee to Waters, no run, another one goes past the edge of the bat, this one was fuller, closer to off, and whats more, it straightened to whizz past the forward poke

Kenya 15/1   SR Waters 5* (25b)
8.1

Southee to Waters, 1 run, taps a back of a length one in front of cover, and looks towards Obuya, who is already half way down the pitch, and the single is easily taken

8.4

Southee to Waters, FOUR, the good old Chinese cut, too close for the conventional form of the shot, Waters goes for it anyways, and gets a healthy inside edge that beats the keeper

8.5

Southee to Waters, no run, takes a half step forward to a fullish ball and pushes it out to point

8.6

Kenya 29/1   SR Waters 10* (29b 1x4)
9.2

Bennett to Waters, 1 run, short of a good length, again in to the body, he rides the bounce, and tucks it to short fine leg, if there was a direct hit at the non-striker's, he was gone

9.4

Bennett to Waters, no run, goes very full now, on the stumps too, he was caught on the back foot just for an instant, and adjusted to squeeze it out to mid on

10.3

Vettori to Waters, no run, gets bat to ball this time and defends one to cover

10.4

Vettori to Waters, no run, caught in two minds, had no clue about this one, just managed to somehow keep it out, off an inside edge on to pad

10.5

Vettori to Waters, 1 run, driven to long off for a single

Kenya 34/1   SR Waters 13* (38b 1x4)
11.2

Bennett to Waters, no run, he is remaining in the crease for a trifle too long, and that's why when he belatedly gets forward there is no power on the drive, this one rolls away to backward point

11.3

Bennett to Waters, 1 run, lets a length ball come on to him outside off and steers it to third man

11.5
