    0.4 what a start! full length on off stump, Vincent doesn't get fully forward and the ball, which swung a little away from him, finds the outside edge and is well caught at waist height at second slip by a delighted Steve Tikolo 0/1
    20.1 crazy run and an appalling error of judgment. Taylor flicked the ball to backward square, right to him, Fleming called and all Obuya, Kenya's best fielder, had to do was pick and throw accurately, which he did, and Fleming was so far short that it didn't even need the third umpire 105/2
    33.4 he's gone this time - a soft pop back up to the bowler, snapped low, who doesn't even celebrate 192/3
    43.1 Mishra takes a good catch at long-on, a safe take in the end, keeping his eyes on it all the way. Lots of height on that skyer, but not much distance sadly for the batsman, who walks off still chewing gum 274/4
    49.2 another slower ball, short again, straight, and the batsman miscues. That's well taken by Tikolo at midwicket, running forward and takes a comfortable catch 321/7
    44.4 short and straight ball, slower too, and there's a swing and a miss to bring up Odoyo's 100th one-day wicket. That was well bowled, hitting the top of the sticks, and a timely wicket for Kenya who will now hope that will contribute towards some damage limitation at the death 280/5
    47.6 on leg and that's whipped high inside the boundary - "Catch it!" - and indeed Varaiya holds on, dropping forward to take that on his knees. Great take 307/6

    5.2 Ouma on his toes, prodded into the covers, he called for a run but it seemed to be in slow motion. He was slow to set off, seemed unbothered during the run, despite Vincent bearing down on the ball, and the underarm throw found him two feet short. The third umpire was called for but Ouma wasn't hanging around ... 8/2
    2.3 straight half volley, hits Obuya on the pads as he shuffled in his crease - he didn't get that far forward - and Rudi Koertzen's finger eventually starts its slow journey towards the heavens 4/1

    29.6 half volley, driven hard to Vettori's right and he was down quickly to hold an excellent low catch. There was a moment of uncertainty, but he leapt to his feet and threw the ball jubilantly in the air. 122/6
    10.5 short ball, on to him too quickly and that's skied to mid-off and Vettori hangs on for the simplest chance. Two victims now for Mason and that's the big wicket - not that Kenya ever had a realistic hope of chasing down this target, anyway 26/3
    11.4 gone! An outside edge goes through and it's too quick for McCullum, but he parries it with his right glove up to Fleming who casually offers one hand to snatch it 29/4
    20.3 spears that one in on off and that's worked to leg. Another terrible mix-up, very poor, and Obuya has been run out. Franklin, throwing in from the boundary, looks up to see both batsmen stranded at the striker's end and he has time to change his mind about where to throw it and Oram takes the bails off. There's no need for the third umpire, there's no need even for the first umpire 76/5
    44.2 goes to straight drive that one aerially and that's sliced up in the air to point where Oram makes no mistake 179/9
    35.3 Kamande steps back aiming to belt that ball out of the ground, sadly for him it was straight and he was fooled by a slightly slower ball and he was through the shot as it thunked into the stumps 149/7
    41.6 comes from vaguely wide of the wicket and angles that right in at the righthander, who squeezes it into the covers. Brilliant piece of fielding by Vincent, nimble, and underarmed that one in at the stumps. The third umpire needed just the one replay for that. Vincent like a hawk, there 167/8
    49.2 and the match comes to an end with Franklin throwing in a consecutive bouncer which the batsman tries to hook and gets only an edge which pops up and is pouched tidily 183/10
