ICC Cricket World Cup, 2010/11 / Commentary

ICC Cricket World Cup - 14th match, Group A

Sri Lanka v Kenya

Sri Lanka won by 9 wickets (with 188 balls remaining)

36.3

Mathews to Mishra, no run, gets a fuller one and pats it away on the leg side

36.4

Mathews to Mishra, 1 bye, Mishra knows where his off stump is, this was too close for comfort, but he shouldered arms to one that came back in sharply with the angle, not far from off stump at all

Kenya 121/4   T Mishra 0* (2b)

38.3

Mendis to Mishra, no run, gets forward and goes for the big drive, mistimes it to mid off

38.4

Mendis to Mishra, no run, now he stretched well forward in defence

38.5

Mendis to Mishra, no run, more tight defence from Mishra, can't do anything else with this

38.6

Mendis to Mishra, no run, the shortish length allows him to go back and he plays it back to the bowler

Kenya 124/4   T Mishra 0* (6b)

39.4

Kulasekara to Mishra, no run, punched away off the back foot, extra cover fields, no power on the shot

39.5

Kulasekara to Mishra, no run, remains in the crease to play the incoming delivery towards midwicket

39.6

Kulasekara to Mishra, no run, another one comes in off the seam, takes Mishra by surprise a bit, but he plays it out in to the leg side in the end, helps if your mind is just on survival

Kenya 127/4   T Mishra 0* (9b)

40.4

Muralitharan to Mishra, no run, defended off the front foot

40.5

Muralitharan to Mishra, no run, more defence from Mishra, that's what he is doing at the moment

40.6

Muralitharan to Mishra, no run, rides the bounce and turn on this one to play it backward of square leg

Kenya 128/5   T Mishra 0* (12b)

41.6

Malinga to Mishra, OUT, Malinga was trying this when he was firing in those full tosses, gets it right this time, the yorker crashes into the boot, too bad he could not get it out of the way, the umpire gave him the finger, but Kenya go for the review, Malinga is too tight there with the front foot, was it a no-ball, was there some part of the foot behind the landing crease, the ball then moved in late, and would have gone on to just strike leg stump, graze it as it were, the on-field call stands, it's not a no-ball, it is hitting leg, and Mishra's misery is over

T Mishra lbw b Malinga 0 (28m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Kenya 137/7   T Mishra 0 (13b)
