Pakistan won by 205 runs
23 February 2011 - day/night match (50-over match)

Abdul Razzaq to Waters, OUT, Waters is run out. Fine work from Umar Akmal. It was pushed towards short mid-on region. Waters set off but so did Umar Akmal from midwicket. He rushed across, swooped on the ball and flicked a direct hit at the non-striker's end

SR Waters run out 17 (38m 31b 2x4 0x6) SR: 54.83

Kenya 37/1   MA Ouma 15* (24b 1x4)   Abdul Razzaq 4.1-0-23-0

Umar Gul to Ouma, OUT, Out this time! It was a good length delivery outside off and Ouma goes for a strange shot. He got on the front foot and went for a cut. Not the length for it. Unless you have a Shane Watson like chop-cut off the front foot. Edge and gone here!

MA Ouma c †Kamran Akmal b Umar Gul 16 (55m 37b 1x4 0x6) SR: 43.24

Kenya 43/2   CO Obuya 3* (6b)   Umar Gul 1.2-0-2-1

Shahid Afridi to Tikolo, OUT, Tikolo fails again. He went down the track, first side stepped towards leg before trying to move across towards the line and went for the lofted hit. But Afridi had held this one back and Tikolo was through early with the shot. The ball slid through the bat and pad gap and fell on the stumps. Afridi's index finger shoots up towards the sky. The Kenyan legend walks back to the hut.

SO Tikolo b Shahid Afridi 13 (37m 33b 1x4 0x6) SR: 39.39

Kenya 73/3   CO Obuya 17* (34b 1x6)   Shahid Afridi 2.2-1-4-1

Shahid Afridi to Mishra, OUT, Pakistan go for the UDRS Lbw turned down. It landed on a length on the off stump and skidded towards the leg stump. The batsman went back, played across the line and missed the slider. It would have hit the leg stump. The reversed verdict is OUT!

T Mishra lbw b Shahid Afridi 6 (11m 16b 1x4 0x6) SR: 37.50

Kenya 79/4   CO Obuya 17* (43b 1x6)   Shahid Afridi 4.3-1-9-2

Mohammad Hafeez to Patel, OUT, Goes for the sweep but this time he top edges it to backward square-leg where Umar takes it with a smile. Five down and tottering. Oops, It was Obuya who played the cracking sweep shot earlier in the over. Patel tried to reprise it but he got a fatal top edge

RR Patel c Umar Akmal b Mohammad Hafeez 0 (4m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Kenya 85/5   CO Obuya 22* (45b 1x4 1x6)   Mohammad Hafeez 1.5-1-6-1

Shahid Afridi to Kamande, OUT, Afridi is on a song here. It landed on a good length around the middle stump line and straightened. The batsman missed it and it would have hit the middle stump. The captain walks back. He had a chat with his partner whether to go for the UDRS and they decide going against it.

JK Kamande lbw b Shahid Afridi 2 (3m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Kenya 87/6   CO Obuya 22* (46b 1x4 1x6)   Shahid Afridi 5.3-2-11-3

Shahid Afridi to Odoyo, OUT, Googly! Wicket no 4. It broke back in from outside off, skidded past the forward prod and hit the pad in front of the off stump. Afridi - 4 for 16

TM Odoyo lbw b Shahid Afridi 0 (8m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Kenya 101/7   CO Obuya 36* (52b 2x4 2x6)   Shahid Afridi 6.5-2-16-4

Shahid Afridi to Obuya, OUT, Wicket no 5 for the captain! Obuya's entertaining knock is over. Afridi teased him with a flighted delivery and he couldn't resist going for the big hit but he couldn't clear long-on. 5 for 16! ooh la la!

CO Obuya c Ahmed Shehzad b Shahid Afridi 47 (89m 58b 3x4 3x6) SR: 81.03

Kenya 112/8   NN Odhiambo 0* (2b)   Shahid Afridi 7.1-2-16-5

Shahid Afridi to Odhiambo, OUT, And then they were one. This one rolled off the pad to the on side. Confusion. Chaos. The striker rushed down the track but his partner wasn't going anywhere. There is a direct hit at the striker's end - shouldn't he have lobbed it safely to hands of a fielder close to the stumps? - and there is no batsman in sight near that end. Gone. Terrible.

NN Odhiambo run out 0 (8m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Kenya 112/9   SO Ngoche 0* (0b)   Shahid Afridi 7.5-2-16-5

Umar Gul to Ngoche, OUT, Oh dear! He shouldered arms there, only to hear the death rattle. It landed on a length just outside off and skidded in. The batsman left it alone. Mistake. Clatter!

SO Ngoche b Umar Gul 0 (8m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Kenya 112/10   E Otieno 0* (1b)   Umar Gul 3.1-0-12-2
