Otieno to Rizwan Cheema, OUT, Elijah has struck. He runs around in glee, pumps his fist and then pulls up his tee shirt to cover his mouth! Some celebration that. Cheema was looking to blast everything out of his presence, and one of them has found its way past him. Short ball, not there for the drive. Not quite there for the pull. Cheema was on the front foot again and went for an ungainly heave across the line. Miss. Leg stump splatters. Elijah is delighted.

Rizwan Cheema b Otieno 17 (18m 13b 2x4 1x6) SR: 130.76

Canada 19/1   R Gunasekera 1* (10b)   E Otieno 1.4-0-11-1

Otieno to Surkari, OUT, This could be curtains for Surkari. The difference between these teams could be the fielding. Kamande is the man on the move again, and he's hit the stumps down at the bowler's end. Similar ball, comes in with the angle, and Surkari bunts to the leg side and takes off. Kamande prowls in quickly, picks up on the move and has a shy at the bowler's end. Surkari was half a foot short.

ZE Surkari run out 10 (29m 26b 1x4 0x6) SR: 38.46

Canada 37/2   R Gunasekera 9* (21b 1x4)   E Otieno 4.5-0-19-1

Ngoche to Gunasekera, 1 wide, OUT, This is Bizarroworld. Ruvindu might be out stumped. Shambles from Ruvindu. Shambles from Ouma. Shambles all round. Stupidity, says Ian Chappell. It slips down the leg side. Ruvindu misses the flick. And looks back. He can't see the ball. He thinks it has trickled away to fine leg. Ouma, cunningly, hid the ball in his left glove. Once Ruvindu strayed out of the crease, Ouma looked to flick the bails off. And missed! He then flicked again. This time he hits the stumps. Ruvindu is still not in! Haven't seen something so bizarre from a batsmen since Inzamam tumbled onto his stumps, attempting to sweep Panesar.

R Gunasekera st †Ouma b Ngoche 18 (59m 27b 3x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Canada 48/3   A Bagai 1* (1b)   JO Ngoche 0-0-1-1

Odhiambo to Hansra, OUT, after 70 impressive runs, Hansra is caught at mid on. There's no Waters there now to drop him. Ngoche holds on. Back of a length ball on off stump, certainly not there for the drive, but Hansra just goes through with the aerial on-drive. Doesn't middle it though, and it goes straight to Ngoche.

AS Hansra c Ngoche b Odhiambo 70 (121m 99b 7x4 2x6) SR: 70.70

Canada 180/4   A Bagai 55* (93b 5x4)   NN Odhiambo 8.5-0-39-1

Odhiambo to Gordon, OUT, Aha, Kenya are down, but not yet out. Odhiambo has bowled Tyson round the legs. He delivers it full and on leg stump from over the wicket, Tyson shuffles too far across in search of the tickle to fine leg and misses. Leg stump is hit, Odhiambo is thrilled.

TG Gordon b Odhiambo 3 (12m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 27.27

Canada 186/5   A Bagai 56* (94b 5x4)   NN Odhiambo 9.5-0-41-2
