8.2

8.3

8.6

Kumble to McKenzie, 1 run, pushed towards mid-on for a single to end the over

Lions 78/3   ND McKenzie 2* (4b)

9.1

Steyn to McKenzie, no run, short of length and outside off, McKenzie tries to swing that towards midwicket but doesn't connect

9.2

Lions 83/3   ND McKenzie 4* (7b)

10.1

du Preez to McKenzie, no run, on the pads to begin with, worked to wide mid on

10.2

du Preez to McKenzie, no run, full on off stump, McKenzie moves to off stump and flicks it square

10.3

du Preez to McKenzie, FOUR, flashed hard! That was well outside off, McKenzie threw his bat at it and got a thick outside edge, well away from Uthappa, who for some weird reason is wearing the helmet while keeping for a seamer.

10.4

du Preez to McKenzie, FOUR, no luck involved in that one! Moves the front foot across and lofts him easily over wide long on. One bounce, two, four.

10.5

du Preez to McKenzie, 1 run, dealing with du Preez as if he were a spinner, nurdles him across from outside off to the right of mid on for one

Lions 92/3   ND McKenzie 13* (12b 2x4)

11.3

Kohli to McKenzie, no run, whoa, what happened there? McKenzie tries to run it from outside off to third man, but makes no contact. Very close to the edge.

11.4

Kohli to McKenzie, 1 run, McKenzie stamps around the crease, going to the leg side and comes back to knock a ball on his pads to midwicket for one

11.6

Kohli to McKenzie, 1 run, short and just outside off, he waits for it and dabs it to short third man for a single

Lions 97/3   ND McKenzie 15* (15b 2x4)

12.1

Kumble to McKenzie, 1 run, on a length outside off and driven out to the covers

12.3

Kumble to McKenzie, no run, cheeky, mckenzie looks for the reverse sweep and executes perfectly, but straight to backward point. If he were playing a normal leggie, he would have been going with the spin, but this is Kumble.. not much spin to work with.

12.4

Kumble to McKenzie, 1 run, dabs this one off the face to short third man., Wild throw back to the keeper concedes a needless overthrow

Lions 100/3   ND McKenzie 17* (18b 2x4)

13.1

Kohli to McKenzie, 1 wide, this one is very wide outside off and called.

13.1

Kohli to McKenzie, FOUR, all class from McKenzie! Length offering outside off, he does that half forward movement of his and slaps it through the covers for four

13.2

Kohli to McKenzie, 1 run, waits in the crease and runs him behind square for a single.

13.4

Kohli to McKenzie, 1 run, drifts on to McKenzie's pads and he works it away to midwicket

13.6

Kohli to McKenzie, 1 run, some angle Kohli is generating, from wide of the crease, and his arm is coming down from over his left shoulder. Lands on leg and straightens, worked easily to midwicket for one more

Lions 110/4   ND McKenzie 24* (22b 3x4)

14.1

Kumble to McKenzie, 1 run, straight and quickish from Kumble, punched down to long off

Lions 111/4   ND McKenzie 25* (23b 3x4)

15.1

Kohli to McKenzie, 1 run, length on off stump from Kohli, worked off the face to the off side for one

15.3

Kohli to McKenzie, FOUR, smartly done by McKenzie! Using Kohli's angle, he plonks his foot across and laps him around the corner for four. Short fine leg had no chance

15.4

Kohli to McKenzie, 1 run, drives this full delivery out to long off for a single

15.6

Kohli to McKenzie, 2 runs, Haha! McKenzie is the strict teacher and the ball is the errant student. It lands on leg stump and bounces, McKenzie is across on off stump, with his cane aloft. And when it sits up he smacks it on the head and sends it down to fine leg. Corporal punishment.

Lions 121/4   ND McKenzie 33* (27b 4x4)

16.2

Steyn to McKenzie, no run, McKenzie looks for the short-arm pull across the line, but Steyn is too fast and goes right through him

16.3

Steyn to McKenzie, 1 run, slower ball, 118 kph, McKenzie picks it late and adjusts but can only pick a single as he taps it to midwicket

16.5

Steyn to McKenzie, 1 leg bye, McKenzie backs away, Steyn follows him and all that ensues is a leg bye

Lions 125/4   ND McKenzie 34* (30b 4x4)

17.2

du Preez to McKenzie, 1 run, Praveen fields well this time, McKenzie comes across and looks to paddle round the corner, Praveen and short fine leg has to out in the dive to stop it.

17.4

du Preez to McKenzie, 1 run, back of a length outside off and driven into the covers for one

Lions 129/5   ND McKenzie 36* (32b 4x4)

18.1

Steyn to McKenzie, 1 run, another monster yorker from Steyn, McKenzie comes down in a hurry and guides it square for a single

18.3

Steyn to McKenzie, 1 run, full and fast at 141 kph, McKenzie played it to the leg side, or so he thought. In reality he had no idea where it went - which was nowhere. They take a single

18.5

Steyn to McKenzie, 1 run, OUT, McKenzie is run out, another slower ball from Steyn, Mckenzie can't get the timing into his drive to wide long on. He makes a late decision to go for the second, Kohli sends in a rather accurate throw to the striker's end. Uthappa comes forward, takes it and breaks the stumps with mcKenzie diving in.

ND McKenzie run out 39 (44m 35b 4x4 0x6) SR: 111.42

Lions 140/6   ND McKenzie 39 (35b 4x4)
