ICC Cricket World Cup - 6th match, Group A

Kenya v Pakistan

Pakistan won by 205 runs

1.1

Otieno to Ahmed Shehzad, no run, bowls a fullish delivery angled on around off stump, he takes a half step out and drives back down the pitch, the bowler gets a hand to it

1.2

Otieno to Ahmed Shehzad, 1 leg bye, plants the front foot across the stumps, and works this one on off to square leg

1.4

Otieno to Ahmed Shehzad, no run, no movement for Otieno so far, pitching it full on the stumps and is driven past the non-striker to mid on

1.5

Otieno to Ahmed Shehzad, no run, left alone outside the off stump

1.6

Otieno to Ahmed Shehzad, no run, good probing delivery, not full enough for the drive, not short enough for the cut, close to off stump, he was in two minds initially but let it go finally

Pakistan 6/0   Ahmed Shehzad 0* (5b)

3.1

Otieno to Ahmed Shehzad, no run, Otieno continues with the channel outside off stump, this time he got it to come in a bit from a length, left alone

3.2

Otieno to Ahmed Shehzad, no run, more steady stuff from Otieno, he gets some extra bounce now, but its outside off and he lets it go

3.3

Otieno to Ahmed Shehzad, no run, he is getting just a tad touchy here, yet to get off the mark, takes a step forward and across, and plays a length ball to midwicket

3.4

Otieno to Ahmed Shehzad, no run, stayed on the back foot looking to thump him through covers, but he got a lot of bounce and he had to play it out to short extra cover, there is bounce in this track, the Pakistani seamers will love it

3.5

Otieno to Ahmed Shehzad, no run, good tidy stuff from the Kenyans, left alone outside off

3.6

Otieno to Ahmed Shehzad, no run, that nagging length which is not there for any shot but the forcing one, he tries to play one but short extra cover is there in the way

Pakistan 6/0   Ahmed Shehzad 0* (11b)

5.1

Otieno to Ahmed Shehzad, no run, he was standing outside off stump ages before the ball was delivered, Otieno stuck to the line outside off, and he pushed it back to the bowler in the end

5.2

Otieno to Ahmed Shehzad, 1 run, he is finally off the mark off the 13th ball, getting a thick edge as he pushed at one dug in back of a length outside off

Pakistan 11/0   Ahmed Shehzad 1* (13b)

6.1

Odoyo to Ahmed Shehzad, no run, back of a length outside off, played down the track

6.2

Odoyo to Ahmed Shehzad, no run, he is standing outside off as the ball is delivered and plays out a length ball towards mid on, this is tight stuff from Kenya

6.3

Odoyo to Ahmed Shehzad, no run, there for the cut, short and wide, but he misses out, it was gentle delivery but he could not connect

6.4

Odoyo to Ahmed Shehzad, no run, defended off the back foot towards mid off

6.5

Odoyo to Ahmed Shehzad, OUT, Shehzad's stuttering stay in the middle is over, it was a length ball on off, nothing special about it, but he wanted to go midwicket, ended up going in the air straight to mid off as he got the leading edge, he had been going across the stumps, and trying to play across the line for some time now, and has paid the price ultimately

Ahmed Shehzad c Kamande b Odoyo 1 (32m 18b 0x4 0x6) SR: 5.55

Pakistan 12/2   Ahmed Shehzad 1 (18b)
