ICC Cricket World Cup, 2010/11 / Commentary

ICC Cricket World Cup - 41st match, Group A

Kenya v Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe won by 161 runs

48.2

Odhiambo to Utseya, 1 run, almost shopped on to the stumps, but he escapes with a single fine down the leg side

Zimbabwe 278/6   P Utseya 1* (1b)

49.1

Otieno to Utseya, SIX, this is some acceleration from Zimbabwe, now it is Utseya, almost sweeps this shortish delivery in Moin Khan fashion, and it carries flat and over the deep square leg ropes

49.2

Otieno to Utseya, FOUR, another one, almost carries over the ropes, skips down the track, adjusts to one on the leg stump, and lifts it on one leg and past deep midwicket, brings up the 300 too

49.3

Otieno to Utseya, FOUR, Kenya have nowhere to hide now, Utseya has charged down and blasted this one down the ground and over the bowler's head

49.4

Otieno to Utseya, FOUR, that is some of the finest pieces of work on a cricket field, he had bent the knee, looking to go over fine leg with the scoop, but realised it was too much outside off for that, and just twirled the wrists to turn the face of the bat, and got the ball neatly past the keeper

49.5

Otieno to Utseya, 1 bye, tries to do the delicate adjustment again fine on the off side, but misses

Zimbabwe 307/6   P Utseya 19* (6b 3x4 1x6)
