ICC Cricket World Cup, 2010/11 / Commentary

ICC Cricket World Cup - 41st match, Group A

Kenya v Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe won by 161 runs

47.2

Otieno to Lamb, no run, Obuya takes the ball, and goes up for the catch, but it was off the thigh pad as Lamb missed the waft across the line

47.3

Otieno to Lamb, FOUR, lovely drive from Lamb, got forward to ease this fuller one in to the gap between sweeper cover and long off, both of whom gave up early

47.4

Otieno to Lamb, no run, tries the short delivery this time, and gets away with it as it bounces high over the batsman

47.5

Otieno to Lamb, 1 run, that is right off the toe end of the bat, that is why it weakly looped in the air and fell short of short fine leg, else the way he had swung the blade, it would have been picked up behind the deep square leg boundary

Zimbabwe 276/5   GA Lamb 5* (4b 1x4)

48.1

Odhiambo to Lamb, 1 run, swung with a loud crack to the man at deep midwicket, if only you could get more runs for middling it off the bat, that would have been a six, it was absolutely belted

48.3

Odhiambo to Lamb, no run, fires in the bouncer, it comes slowly off the pitch, he goes for the pull, but it is too high for him, not called a wide

48.4

Odhiambo to Lamb, 2 runs, slower one, really slower one, he was half-way through with the pull, stopped, and then helped it fine on it's way to fine leg where Rakep flung himself to his right and stopped the ball inches from the ropes

48.5

Odhiambo to Lamb, SIX, Lamb connects and gets more than enough on this length ball to send it screaming over the wide long off boundary

48.6

Odhiambo to Lamb, 2 runs, Rakep is in business again, this one is worked away off the pads wide of fine leg

Zimbabwe 288/6   GA Lamb 16* (9b 1x4 1x6)

49.6

Otieno to Lamb, 1 run, takes a step down the track, and has a swipe, thick edge down to third man, and Zimbabwe have surged and swelled like a river in monsoon, and Kenya's hopes have been flooded over

Zimbabwe 308/6   GA Lamb 17* (10b 1x4 1x6)
