28.1

Osinde to Kamande, no run, bustles in on a full length, on the leg stump at 123 kph and driven to mid off

28.2

Osinde to Kamande, FOUR, take that. Kamande has struggled against spin, and clearly prefers pace on the ball. This was just short of a length and coming into his body, Kamande responded by standing tall and smacking the pull between mid on and midwicket. Dismissive.

43.3

NN Odhiambo b Osinde 4 (8m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 44.44
