    11.4 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 44/5
    0.5 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 3/1
    3.3 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 10/2
    7.3 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 27/3
    10.3 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 44/4
    19.5 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 73/6
    24.6 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 95/7
    not out
    25.2 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 101/8
    31.2 Elton's direct hit sends Otieno on his way, they attempted a quick single towards covers but Elton fired in the throw at the striker's end to catch him inches short of the crease 124/9
    35.6 that will be the end of it all, Ngoche came down the track and looked to launch this one over deep midwicket, but only got it as far as Mpofu on the boundary 147/10
