ICC Cricket World Cup, 2010/11 / Wicket commentary

ICC Cricket World Cup - 23rd match, Group A

Canada v Kenya

Canada won by 5 wickets (with 27 balls remaining)

0.2

Osinde to Ouma, OUT, and right away, Osinde strikes, bowled it fuller this time and much closer to off stumps, Ouma looked to leave it tentatively, there was sharp away movement which took the outside edge even as he looked to pull his bat away, and the ball settled in the palms of second slip

MA Ouma c Baidwan b Osinde 0 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Kenya 0/1   SR Waters 0* (0b)   H Osinde 0.2-0-0-1

4.5

Osinde to Waters, OUT, and the one that comes in as a surprise delivery gets him, Osinde likes it, it was pitched fuller and went on with the angle, Waters was tentative in pushing forward with all that away movement, and pushed outside the line, the ball raced through the gap between bat and pad, off the back pad and on to off stump which was uprooted out of the ground

SR Waters b Osinde 2 (22m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 15.38

Kenya 7/2   CO Obuya 5* (14b)   H Osinde 2.5-1-3-2

6.6

Osinde to DO Obuya, OUT, Osinde gets another one, you cannot play-and-miss repeatedly, have to nick one in the end, that is what happened this time, it was pitched closer to off stump, making him push forward, and moved away late to take the edge on its way to Bagai, who pouches it very happily

DO Obuya c †Bagai b Osinde 2 (11m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Kenya 21/3   CO Obuya 17* (19b 2x4)   H Osinde 4-2-7-3

11.3

Baidwan to CO Obuya, OUT, another one departs, what a shot to play when you are three down, went heaving at a length delivery from the crease, wanting to lift it over midwicket, got nowhere close to the ball, it seamed in a shade to beat him even more comprehensively, and crashed in to the stumps

CO Obuya b Baidwan 31 (53m 35b 3x4 1x6) SR: 88.57

Kenya 41/4   SO Tikolo 4* (11b)   HS Baidwan 4.3-1-17-1

14.6

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   T Mishra 8* (12b 1x4)   Rizwan Cheema 1-0-3-1

29.2

Balaji Rao to Kamande, OUT, Rao has struck, and Kamande's woes against spin come to an end. Short ball, landed close to his own half, and turning away from Kamande. He went for the cut, and if anything, seems to have been caught out by the extra bounce. Poor feet movement did not help his cause. He was rooted to where he took guard and went at it hard. He gets a faint edge on the cut, and Bagai pouches it well.

JK Kamande c †Bagai b Balaji Rao 22 (49m 58b 3x4 0x6) SR: 37.93

Kenya 109/6   T Mishra 33* (40b 3x4)   WD Balaji Rao 4.2-0-15-1

42.1

Davison to Mishra, OUT, Davison comes on and gets Mishra right away, lured him down the track with a flighted one from round the wicket, he got too close to the delivery and had a go at it, ending up getting a leading edge which went safely in the hands of mid off, this is a big wicket at this stage

T Mishra c Surkari b Davison 51 (120m 73b 3x4 0x6) SR: 69.86

Kenya 166/7   TM Odoyo 38* (44b 5x4)   JM Davison 3.1-0-15-1

43.6

Osinde to Odhiambo, OUT, and now he gets it in a place where appeals don't matter, even as Odhiambo went swishing again, this time the yorker was spot-on, crashing in to the stumps, Osinde has four with the last ball of his tenth over

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

Kenya 171/8   TM Odoyo 39* (46b 5x4)   H Osinde 10-2-26-4

48.6

Rizwan Cheema to Otieno, OUT, Hansra denies Kenya a six, it was slogged again, and this time he got the connection, it flew high in the air and settled in the hands of Hansra at wide long on who was about half an inch from the ropes, talk about being in the right place at the right time, they look at the replays before confirming that it was clean

E Otieno c Hansra b Rizwan Cheema 8 (20m 17b 1x4 0x6) SR: 47.05

Kenya 193/9   TM Odoyo 49* (59b 5x4 1x6)   Rizwan Cheema 9-1-30-2

49.6

Baidwan to Odoyo, OUT, what a delivery! Odoyo is on all fours, and the stumps are shattered, again he gets the late inward movement as Odoyo backs away and looks to heave it down the ground, the ball tails in past his bat and crashes into the base of the stumps, 19 for 2 off the batting Powerplay

TM Odoyo b Baidwan 51 (86m 62b 5x4 1x6) SR: 82.25

Kenya 198/10   JO Ngoche 1* (3b)   HS Baidwan 10-1-41-2
