ICC Cricket World Cup - 31st match, Group A

Australia v Kenya

Australia won by 60 runs

2.5

Lee to Ouma, OUT, edged ... and taken! Lee follows the bouncer with a full ball that begins to swing away from the batsman from around off stump. Ouma chases after it with the drive and edges to Haddin who takes a simple catch. Excellent ball after that bouncer. Full and swinging at pace.

MA Ouma c †Haddin b Lee 4 (14m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 30.76

Kenya 12/1   AA Obanda 6* (4b 1x6)   B Lee 1.5-0-3-1

3.6

Tait to Obanda, OUT, bowled him! Tait bowls a fast full toss. That was there to be hit and Obanda wanted to send it over the leg-side boundary. He missed it though and the ball crashed into middle stump

AA Obanda b Tait 14 (20m 10b 0x4 2x6) SR: 140.00

Kenya 21/2   CO Obuya 0* (1b)   SW Tait 2-0-18-1

9.4

Johnson to DO Obuya, OUT, there's a mix-up between the brothers and David Obuya is run out. David pushed the ball off his hips towards midwicket and sprinted for the run. Collins, perhaps seeing that Hussey was sprinting towards the ball from square leg with no signs of hamstring trouble, did not want the run. David kept coming and by the time he stopped and turned, Hussey had reached the ball. his throw to Haddin was good and David had to go.

DO Obuya run out 12 (27m 16b 2x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

Kenya 46/3   CO Obuya 9* (19b 1x4)   MG Johnson 1.4-0-10-0

35.3

Watson to CO Obuya, OUT, tragic way to go, Mishra is run out. It was perhaps the only way Australia were going to strike. Obuya dabbed the ball towards backward point and the batsmen decided to take on Clarke. Bad move. He swooped on the ball and hit the stumps direct at the striker's end. Well played Mishra, an innings ended by a bad decision to run. He's made his highest ODI score today.

T Mishra run out 72 (92m 89b 8x4 1x6) SR: 80.89

Kenya 161/4   CO Obuya 46* (85b 4x4)   SR Watson 1.3-0-8-0

47.3

Tait to Odoyo, OUT, bowled him, middle stump lies flat. Odoyo backs away to swing, Tait bowls a full and straight ball. It beat Odoyo for pace and uprooted middle stump

TM Odoyo b Tait 35 (59m 38b 4x4 1x6) SR: 92.10

Kenya 247/5   CO Obuya 87* (121b 7x4 3x6)   SW Tait 6.3-0-42-2

49.4

Tait to CO Obuya, 1 run, OUT, hit straight back down to long-on and Obuya runs back for the second. But the throw from the deep is good and Tait, even though he took an age to remove the bails, does it in the nick of time to run out Patel. Only one for Obuya, who has the strike though

RR Patel run out 6 (10m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 85.71

Kenya 263/6   CO Obuya 97* (127b 9x4 3x6)   SW Tait 7.4-0-48-2
