17.5

Mendis to DO Obuya, FOUR, whoa, some shot that. Drifting yorker of sorts on leg stump from Mendis, David seems to be slipping and tumbling over even as he swipes hard and there's a hueg puff off dust as he makes contact. Somehow, he middles the ball and it scoots to the midwicket boundary.

Kenya 54/2   DO Obuya 21* (45b 3x4)   BAW Mendis 2.5-0-9-0
19.6

Mendis to CO Obuya, FOUR, Collins gets four, full marks for intent and bravery as he chips down the track despite not reading most of the over. He gets far enough to reach the pitch of the ball and then just lofts through the line over wide mid off. No fielders back, and four to the cause

Kenya 63/2   CO Obuya 30* (61b 4x4)   BAW Mendis 4-0-14-0
35.4

Kulasekara to Tikolo, FOUR, the slower bouncer goes wrong for Kula, Tikolo latches on to the half tracker and pulls it away through midwicket for the first boundary in ages

41.3

Malinga to Odhiambo, FOUR, low full toss at 143.3 kph, he gets some bat on it, and it runs away wide of mid off, for a boundary, just seemed a prod

Kenya 132/6   NN Odhiambo 4* (2b 1x4)   SL Malinga 6.3-0-29-2
41.4

Malinga to Odhiambo, FOUR, now he goes down on a knee and looks to go over cow corner, the outside edge takes it very fine on the off side, no chance for any man, not even third man

Kenya 136/6   NN Odhiambo 8* (3b 2x4)   SL Malinga 6.4-0-33-2
