ICC Cricket World Cup, 2010/11 / Commentary

ICC Cricket World Cup - 31st match, Group A

Australia v Kenya

Australia won by 60 runs

7.2

Odhiambo to Watson, OUT, caught! And such a late celebratory reaction from the keeper! That was short and wide from Odhiambo, but he got the ball to bounce a touch more. Watson went for the cut and got a thick edge through to the keeper, who had to take it over his head

SR Watson c †Ouma b Odhiambo 21 (32m 17b 3x4 1x6) SR: 123.52

Australia 38/1   BJ Haddin 16* (27b 3x4)   NN Odhiambo 1.2-0-2-1

24.4

Kamande to Haddin, OUT, caught at deep midwicket! Haddin moves forward, picks up the ball from outside off and swings it high and straight to the man on the deep midwicket boundary

BJ Haddin c Patel b Kamande 65 (109m 79b 9x4 1x6) SR: 82.27

Australia 127/2   RT Ponting 35* (52b 5x4)   JK Kamande 4.4-0-16-1

25.4

CO Obuya to Ponting, OUT, loud appeal for lbw as Ponting attempts to work the ball on the leg side but misses and gets hit on the pad. The umpire says not out and Kenya want a review. That one didn't turn, was going straight through. A terrific review it is for that was hitting middle and leg.

RT Ponting lbw b CO Obuya 36 (83m 54b 5x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Australia 131/3   MJ Clarke 3* (4b)   CO Obuya 1.4-0-9-1

26.6

Kamande to White, OUT, oh wow! Did Kamande become Murali? White is shocked and with good reason. That ball pitched a long way outside off and spun viciously into the right-hander. White pushed forward in defence and the ball spun past his bat and hit off and middle. More middle than off. Was there an inside edge on to the stumps? I'm not yet sure ... There was no inside edge, simply spun massively between bat and pad.

CL White b Kamande 2 (6m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Australia 143/4   MJ Clarke 6* (7b)   JK Kamande 6-0-25-2

43.1

Odhiambo to Hussey, OUT, caught at long-on! The length was a touch full, the line was outside off and the pace might have been a touch slower. Hussey drags the ball from outside off towards David Obuya who ran in a bit and took the catch. Hussey was aiming to hit it straighter ...

MEK Hussey c DO Obuya b Odhiambo 54 (72m 43b 4x4 0x6) SR: 125.58

Australia 257/5   MJ Clarke 60* (61b 4x4)   NN Odhiambo 7.1-1-30-2

48.1

Odhiambo to Clarke, OUT, whoops, he's holed out to long-on. Clarke tried to launch a full ball over the man on the long-on boundary. He didn't get enough elevation or distance and Patel took a fine catch at shin height. That was travelling to him quickly and Clarke's World Cup average comes down a notch or two ...

MJ Clarke c Patel b Odhiambo 93 (109m 80b 7x4 1x6) SR: 116.25

Australia 304/6   SPD Smith 11* (11b 1x4)   NN Odhiambo 9.1-1-46-3
