Rizwan Cheema to Tikolo, OUT, Cheema gets his man, or has he? Kenya's turn to review a leg-before decision that was given out, it was cutting in from the seam, struck him in the line of off stump, that would have gone on to hit middle stump, but Tikolo managed to get an inside edge on it before it struck the pad, but apparently the third umpire wanted clearer proof of there having been an inside edge, HotSpot would have confirmed it, but it isn't there, the decision stands, and Steve Tikolo has to walk back

SO Tikolo lbw b Rizwan Cheema 12 (39m 20b 1x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

Kenya 57/5   SO Tikolo 12 (20b 1x4)
