ICC Cricket World Cup, 2010/11 / Wicket commentary

ICC Cricket World Cup - 6th match, Group A

Kenya v Pakistan

Pakistan won by 205 runs

5.3

Otieno to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, jeez, what a ripper! it was clipped neatly off the toes, and was in the gap too, but just as it was about to pass midwicket, Waters went screaming to his left horizontally, took the ball, but even as he fell it went out of his grasp, but he took it cleanly in the end with the right hand, an absolute screamer, Hafeez cannot believe it, but he has to walk back after umpteen replays confirm it was clean

Mohammad Hafeez c Waters b Otieno 9 (24m 20b 1x4 0x6) SR: 45.00

Pakistan 11/1   Ahmed Shehzad 1* (13b)   E Otieno 2.3-0-2-1

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   Kamran Akmal 0* (4b)   TM Odoyo 3.5-1-8-1

24.4

Ngoche to Kamran Akmal, OUT, dear me, Kamran has lost it here, went charging blindly down the track to a tossed up delivery, and decided to swing it out of sight, but the ball turned past his flailing blade and Ouma did the rest, what a shame, he had batted so well, brain fade really, Ngoche is rewarded for flighting the ball

Kamran Akmal st †Ouma b Ngoche 55 (84m 67b 5x4 0x6) SR: 82.08

Pakistan 110/3   Younis Khan 36* (47b 2x4)   SO Ngoche 4.4-0-18-1

33.4

Tikolo to Younis Khan, OUT, Younis goes for the review, he was struck on the pads as he went for another sweep, Tikolo asked the question twice, umpire Llong gave him out after a lot of thought and replays show the ball hitting the leg stump, Pakistan lose a review, and Younis has to walk back, one more well-set batsman falls at the wrong time for Pakistan

Younis Khan lbw b Tikolo 50 (112m 67b 2x4 0x6) SR: 74.62

Pakistan 155/4   Misbah-ul-Haq 30* (35b 1x4 1x6)   SO Tikolo 4.4-0-22-1

46.5

Kamande to Misbah-ul-Haq, OUT, Misbah goes this time, swinging a full delivery straight to long on, the boundaries here are very long and he picked out the man almost to perfection, well, he's put Pakistan in a strong position though

Misbah-ul-Haq c Otieno b Kamande 65 (92m 69b 1x4 2x6) SR: 94.20

Pakistan 273/5   Umar Akmal 63* (46b 8x4 1x6)   JK Kamande 6.5-0-59-1

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

Pakistan 289/6   Shahid Afridi 7* (3b 1x4)   TM Odoyo 4.2-1-29-2

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

Pakistan 289/7   Abdul Razzaq 0* (0b)   TM Odoyo 4.3-1-29-3
