Mpofu to DO Obuya, OUT, and he gets rewards for some lovely bowling, fuller and angled in on the stumps, he was caught by surprise, and took it on the pads, he is a goner,says the umpire

Kenya 3/1   AA Obanda 3* (3b)   CB Mpofu 0.5-0-3-1

3.3

Price to Obanda, OUT, direct hit from short third man, it was guided in that direction and they were attempting the quick single, they go to the third umpire, and he is caught just short of the crease, good work from the fielder, got quickly to the ball and fired in the throw without wasting any time, Collins has to walk back

CO Obuya run out 1 (12m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

Kenya 10/2   AA Obanda 4* (13b)   RW Price 1.3-0-2-0

7.3

Price to Tikolo, OUT, that looks to be the end of Tikolo for one final time, he went back to one that hurried on, missed the waft and was struck on the pads in front of leg stump, umpire Dharmasena raised the finger right away, Tikolo goes for the review, but to no avail, that is taking out leg stump, in a lovely gesture, all the Zimbabwe players rush to shake hands with Tikolo as he walks back, the grand old man of Kenyan cricket gets a standing ovation from the sparse Kolkata crowd who know their cricket only too well, the Kenyan dressing room applauds as one, the Zimbabwe players continue clapping in unison right till the very end, the end of the Kenyan legend

SO Tikolo lbw b Price 10 (16m 14b 2x4 0x6) SR: 71.42

Kenya 27/3   AA Obanda 10* (23b 1x4)   RW Price 3.3-0-8-1

10.3

Utseya to Mishra, OUT, Mishra has thrown it away, he is such a fine player of spin, but that won't please him one bit, with fine leg up, he goes for the sweep, and gets a meek top edge that settles in to that man's hands, Utseya is in business right away

T Mishra c Cremer b Utseya 4 (11m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 44.44

Kenya 44/4   AA Obanda 23* (32b 4x4)   P Utseya 0.3-0-4-1

11.4

Price to Obanda, OUT, Price keeps firing them in, there is no getting away, this one strikes him on the pads in front of the stumps again as he pushes forward, pad first and then bat it seems, umpire Dharmasena thought so, and gave him out, they go for the review, and it only confirms the umpire's decision

AA Obanda lbw b Price 23 (51m 36b 4x4 0x6) SR: 63.88

Kenya 44/5   TM Odoyo 0* (3b)   RW Price 5.4-0-16-2

19.5

Lamb to Odoyo, OUT, strikes him on the pads right in front of middle as he goes back and misses the waft across the line, that looked dead if there is no inside edge, it lodged between the two pads, umpire Dharmasena thinks there is some wood on that, Zimbabwe want the review, that is hitting middle of middle, there does not seem to be any bat, and that is the end of Thomas Odoyo

TM Odoyo lbw b Lamb 14 (35m 29b 2x4 0x6) SR: 48.27

Kenya 73/6   RR Patel 15* (23b 2x4)   GA Lamb 2.5-0-9-1

24.6

Lamb to Patel, OUT, falls finally on his last attempt, goes for the slog sweep, seen three forms of the shot in three deliveries, this one is hit the farthest of the three, but not beyond the man at deep midwicket who takes a well-judged catch on the boundary

RR Patel c Chakabva b Lamb 24 (50m 37b 3x4 0x6) SR: 64.86

Kenya 95/7   NN Odhiambo 13* (17b 1x4)   GA Lamb 5-0-15-2

25.2

Cremer to Ongondo, OUT, Ongondo departs second ball, tossed up on leg stump, and turns to strike him pad first as he pushes forward, right away umpire Dharmasena raises the finger, Zimbabwe need two more

PJ Ongondo lbw b Cremer 6 (2m 2b 0x4 1x6) SR: 300.00

Kenya 101/8   NN Odhiambo 13* (17b 1x4)   AG Cremer 1.2-0-9-1
