Played at MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chepauk, Chennai (neutral venue)
20 February 2011 (50-over match)

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   SR Waters 4* (24b)   TG Southee 4-0-6-1

Bennett to Waters, OUT, full and angled in on the stumps, Waters is late on it and plays around it to be struck on the pads, the umpire thinks long before raising the finger, the batsmen get together, and decide not to review it, Waters walks back after a stuttering innings, replays show that would have taken out leg

SR Waters lbw b Bennett 16 (49m 42b 1x4 0x6) SR: 38.09

Kenya 40/2   CO Obuya 14* (12b 2x4)   HK Bennett 2-0-9-1

Bennett to Tikolo, OUT, cleaned him up, what a delivery, full and steaming in on the stumps, Tikolo plays all over it, and it crashes in to the base of middle, and takes out off stump too for good measure, Kenya have lost their most experienced player

SO Tikolo b Bennett 2 (4m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Kenya 42/3   CO Obuya 14* (18b 2x4)   HK Bennett 2.2-0-11-2

Bennett to Obuya, OUT, they continue to fall, another fullish delivery, this one stayed low, and rapped him on the pads, Bennett asked the question and got an affirmative answer from the umpire, Kenya try to delay the inevitable with a decision review, but that is dead, that is hitting middle, he just played outside the line, and now has to walk back, Kenya in tatters

CO Obuya lbw b Bennett 14 (32m 19b 2x4 0x6) SR: 73.68

Kenya 44/4   MA Ouma 0* (2b)   HK Bennett 2.5-0-12-3

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   RR Patel 4* (6b)   HK Bennett 3.3-0-13-4

Oram to Kamande, OUT, gets his man in his first over, he pitched it a shade fuller outside off, Kamande looked to run it down to third man, but the extra bounce that Oram normally gets did him in, and the thick edge flew to the right of Baz who held on comfortably, more worries for Kenya

JK Kamande c †BB McCullum b Oram 2 (19m 16b 0x4 0x6) SR: 12.50

Kenya 59/6   RR Patel 12* (16b 1x4)   JDP Oram 0.5-0-0-1

Oram to Odoyo, OUT, another one stops on the batsman, there have been a few of those, but the problem for Odoyo was, it also produced the Oram extra bounce, Odoyo was taken by surprise and ungainly fended it in the air for Jesse to take the dolliest of dollies at point, dear me, Kenya have gone nowhere in this innings

TM Odoyo c Ryder b Oram 2 (6m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Kenya 63/7   RR Patel 14* (20b 1x4)   JDP Oram 1.3-1-1-2

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

Kenya 68/8   RR Patel 15* (22b 1x4)   TG Southee 5.5-0-13-2

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   RR Patel 15* (22b 1x4)   TG Southee 6-0-13-3

Oram to Otieno, OUT, oops, there will be no hat trick for Southee, another one stopped on the batsman, he was already well forward and pushing hard at it, and the ball flew to one of the two men at short midwicket, it's all over for Kenya, nice gesture from the big man Oram, grins sheepishly and gestures apologetically in the direction of Southee, who has an even broader smile on his face

E Otieno c Styris b Oram 0 (4m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Kenya 69/10   RR Patel 16* (23b 1x4)   JDP Oram 2.5-1-2-3
