Southee to Obanda, 1 no ball, and he oversteps first ball, it was a length ball on target, but a free hit coming up


Southee to Obanda, 1 leg bye, gives him a short free hit, Obanda had set himself up for a huge swing, but missed it completely, they sneak a leg bye as the ball rolls away in to the on side


Southee to Waters, no run, fuller on the pads, he solidly plays it out to midwicket


Southee to Waters, no run, good line from Southee, around off stump, Waters goes back and defends it towards cover


Southee to Waters, no run, loud shout for leg before, nippy length delivery that struck him on the pads as he flicked across the line, but the umpire thought that was going down leg, i think he thought rightly too


Southee to Waters, no run, tucks him up for room nicely, bang on middle stump on a length, Waters plays it back to Southee


Southee to Waters, no run, touch fuller, still no room at all to work with, dug out towards mid on, good over from Southee

Kenya 2/0   TG Southee 1-0-1-0

Southee to Obanda, 1 run, tucked away off the pads backward of square leg


Southee to Waters, no run, this is pretty neat stuff from the bowler, full length on middle stump, he is circumspect in his defence back down the track


Southee to Waters, 1 run, gets some width outside off and opens the bat face to take a single down to third man


Southee to Obanda, no run, another straight delivery, there is no seam, no swing, but there is no width either, and he pushes it towards mid on


Southee to Obanda, no run, shortens the length around off stump, he taps it to cover and thinks of a single but the fielder is quick to get to the ball


Southee to Obanda, no run, looks to swing him straight down the ground but is hit on the pads off the inside edge

Kenya 6/0   TG Southee 2-0-3-0

Southee to Waters, no run, dug in short of a good length, he gets in to some sort of a tangle as he decides to work it square but is hit on the thigh pad


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


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


Southee to Waters, no run, confident looking drive from Waters, got to the pitch of a wide and full ball outside off, but his shot went straight to point


Southee to Waters, 1 run, this time he stays back to a shorter one, and guides it just behind point, enough for a quick run


Southee to Obanda, 1 run, another single, that's what Kenya seem to be interested in right now, this time to the left of midwicket off a fuller ball

Kenya 9/0   TG Southee 3-0-5-0

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


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


Southee to Waters, 1 leg bye, this one nips in with the angle from over the stumps, stays a bit low, he had no clue about it, and was rapped on the pads, the ball rolled away wide of slip


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


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


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   TG Southee 4-0-6-1

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


Southee to Obuya, no run, gets a bouncer just outside off stump, and calmly lets it go past him


Southee to Obuya, 1 run, caught on the back foot, just a bit of inward movement off the seam, cramped him up totally, they take a tight single as the ball rolls away off the inside edge


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


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


Southee to Waters, no run, clipped away emphatically off the pads, but there is midwicket, and he moves across to field

Kenya 29/1   TG Southee 5-0-12-1

Southee to Patel, no run, tucks him up with a back of a length ball, he defends it off the back foot


Southee to Patel, 1 run, fuller delivery on the pads, flicked away to fine leg


Southee to Odhiambo, no run, Southee gets ambitious with the leg before appeal, the batsman was struck high on the pads, but it was slipping down leg


Southee to Odhiambo, no run, goes for an extravagant drive to a full delivery, but gets an inside edge on to pad and the ball rolls away towards point, there have been so many of them today, inside edges, and wickets too


Southee to Odhiambo, OUT, and another one goes, nothing shot really, swinging wildly to a full delivery that was of the you-miss-I-hit types, well Odhiambo missed, and the ball uprooted off stump, ho hum

NN Odhiambo b Southee 0 (6m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00


Southee to Ngoche, OUT, two in two for Tim, pinpoint yorker on the stumps, and before the bat could come down, the ball had crashed on to boot, not much to decide for the umpire, Southee is on a hat trick with one wicket to go

SO Ngoche lbw b Southee 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Kenya 68/9   TG Southee 6-0-13-3
