Pakistan won by 205 runs

0.1

Odoyo to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, good delivery to start with, pitches it on a length and gets it to shape away from outside off stump, left alone

0.2

Odoyo to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, on target again, getting some away movement, he takes a step out and leaves it alone

0.3

Odoyo to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, this one went straight on after pitching close to off, he was forward and was struck on the pads, but outside the line

0.4

Odoyo to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, straightens this time from around off, good stuff from Thomo, bit of bounce too, defended down the track

0.5

Odoyo to Mohammad Hafeez, 2 runs, bowls it too straight now, around middle and is picked away through midwicket

0.6

Odoyo to Mohammad Hafeez, 2 runs, pleasing stroke, easy on the eyes, he takes a step out, and caresses the full delivery through covers, not much power on the shot though

Pakistan 4/0   TM Odoyo 1-0-4-0

2.1

Odoyo to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, takes it on the pads as he looks to whip it through midwicket, the ball rolls away harmlessly on the leg side

2.2

Odoyo to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, again getting that front foot forward and across, and then brings down the bat in front of pad to flick a length ball to midwicket

2.3

Odoyo to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, Odoyo's turn to bowl the probing line outside off stump, he leaves it alone wisely as two slips wait

2.4

Odoyo to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, goes wider this time outside off, and moving away after pitching around back of a length, easily left alone

2.5

Odoyo to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, gets forward to defend a length ball outside off, Odoyo gets some extra bounce that strikes him high on the bat

2.6

Odoyo to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, ooh, that was close, he had him playing across to a fullish one on the stumps, and he ended up scooping it in the air, but it fell in no man;s land just behind the non-striker's stumps

Pakistan 6/0   TM Odoyo 2-1-4-0

4.1

Odoyo to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, straightening from around off stump again, played out to point

4.2

Odoyo to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, this one died on its way to the keeper, it was left outside off stump

4.3

Odoyo to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, the first boundary of the innings arrives, and it took a different approach to achieve that, Hafeez walked across his stumps and lifted a length delivery over square leg, and it just about made the ropes

4.4

Odoyo to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, good response from the bowler, bit of extra effort, comes back in a long way from outside off, struck him on the pads, but way outside the line as he pushed forward

4.5

Odoyo to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, has him stretching out now, to a delivery pitched fuller, and he pushes to short extra cover

4.6

Odoyo to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, looks to get that big incoming delivery going again, this one does not move in as much, defended cautiously

Pakistan 10/0   TM Odoyo 3-1-8-0

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

6.6

Odoyo to Younis Khan, no run, nicely on top of a length delivery close to off stump, and defends it confidently in to the off side

Pakistan 12/2   TM Odoyo 4-1-8-1

8.1

Odoyo to Younis Khan, 3 runs, they are gifting full tosses now, another one is whipped through midwicket, slows down as it nears the boundary, and that allows the man running in from deep square leg to put in the dive and save a run

8.2

Odoyo to Kamran Akmal, no run, played out in to the off side

8.3

Odoyo to Kamran Akmal, no run, tucked away off the pads towards midwicket, cannot get the single

8.4

Odoyo to Kamran Akmal, 2 runs, one more full toss, where are the Kenyan replacements, the pressure is being released, this one is flicked past square leg

8.5

Odoyo to Kamran Akmal, 1 wide, Odoyo is losing it here, now he bowls a short one that goes way down leg

8.5

Odoyo to Kamran Akmal, no run, short again, but the line is on middle, and he defends off the back foot

8.6

Odoyo to Kamran Akmal, no run, yet another full toss, this time he misses out, and drives it straight to mid on

Pakistan 24/2   TM Odoyo 5-1-14-1

34.1

Odoyo to Misbah-ul-Haq, 5 wides, and with the keeper standing up, he bowls this one two feet down the legside, and the ball runs away fine in to the boundary

34.1

Odoyo to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, as if on cue, Odoyo pitches this one in the corridor outside off stump, and it is left alone

34.2

Odoyo to Misbah-ul-Haq, 5 wides, no, no, he has not taken any cue, another one sprayed wildly down leg, Ouma had no chance even from his position standing back

34.2

Odoyo to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, oops, Odoyo is giving Ouma a torrid time, this one rolls away outside the off stump to him, and he takes it with some discomfort

34.3

Odoyo to Misbah-ul-Haq, 1 run, short of a good length, but leg side again, worked away to fine leg gleefully

34.4

Odoyo to Umar Akmal, no run, gives him the short one, he tries to get on top of it and pull it but hits it to mid on on the end

34.5

Odoyo to Umar Akmal, 2 runs, good running from Umar, he worked this one in front of fine leg and set off, Misbah was hesitant but two was always on Umar's mind

34.6

Odoyo to Umar Akmal, no run, yikes, this one dies under Umar's attempted cut which then turned into a flail as he saw the ball hardly bouncing but it still went under his bat

Pakistan 170/4   TM Odoyo 6-1-27-1

48.1

Odoyo to Umar Akmal, 2 runs, slashes a full delivery wide of sweeper cover

48.2

Odoyo to Umar Akmal, OUT, picks out long on, it was the slower one, he got too much underneath the ball, but still went through with the shot, and managed to find long on in the end, what a knock though

Umar Akmal c Obuya b Odoyo 71 (66m 52b 8x4 1x6) SR: 136.53

48.3

Odoyo to Shahid Afridi, OUT, whoops this one looked very close, it was very full too, and rapped him on the pads as he swung across the line from the crease, Odoyo's confident appeal was turned down initially, Kenya go for the referral, that is hitting middle of middle, and he will have to walk back

Shahid Afridi lbw b Odoyo 7 (12m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 175.00

48.4

Odoyo to Abdur Rehman, 5 wides, if that is the hattrick ball, it certainly wasnt going to get him one, it was sprayed wide down the leg side, and Ouma had no chance standing up to the stumps

48.4

Odoyo to Abdur Rehman, 1 run, full and going across the left-hander, driven hard to extra cover on the edge of the circe

48.5

Odoyo to Abdul Razzaq, 1 run, keeping it very full, Razzaq goes down on a knee and drives it down to sweeper cover

48.6

Odoyo to Abdur Rehman, 4 wides, and with that angle the ball goes down the leg side again, just stopped inside the ropes

48.6

Odoyo to Abdul Razzaq, 1 run, short and wide, the over ends now finally, with a slap to sweeper cover off the back foot

Pakistan 301/7   TM Odoyo 5-1-41-3
