Kenya v New Zealand

0.1

Bond to Ouma, no run, on target right away, pitches on a good length outside off stump and Ouma decides to let it go, surely he won't let too many pass

0.2

Bond to Ouma, OUT, bowled him! Fuller length pitches just outside off stump and angles into the right-hander, Ouma tries to play an expansive cover drive and the ball bursts through the gap between bat and pad, it hits the elbow and rattles the stumps, awesome start from Bond

MA Ouma b Bond 0 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

0.3

Bond to Mishra, no run, full ball slanting into middle stump, Mishra tries to flick but doesn't connect

Bond to Mishra, no run

0.5

Bond to Mishra, OUT, caught! Good length outside the off stump, Mishra cuts and hits it straight to Vincent at point, Kenya are two down in the first over

T Mishra c Oram b Bond 0 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

0.6

Bond to Tikolo, no run, Tikolo doesn't offer a shot and gets hit on the pad just outside off stump, loud shout for lbw but it was too high

Kenya 0/2   SE Bond 1-1-0-2

2.1

Bond to CO Obuya, no run, full ball outside the off stump, Obuya tries to drive and get beaten by the pace of Bond

2.2

2.3

Bond to CO Obuya, 1 run, full length delivery on off and middle stump, driven to mid-on for a quick single

2.4

Bond to Odoyo, no run, good length delivery pitches on off stump and swings into Odoyo's pads, he tries to flick but is very late on the shot

2.5

Bond to Odoyo, no run, massive appeal for lbw, good length ball pitches on a good length and hits Odoyo on off stump, perhaps there was an inside edge on that one

2.6

Bond to Odoyo, no run, full delivery wider outside the off stump, Odoyo reaches out for it and drives but is no where near the ball

Kenya 2/4   SE Bond 2-1-1-2

4.1

Bond to Odoyo, 1 wide, short ball but Bond strays down leg side and concedes a wide

4.1

Bond to Odoyo, no run, Odoyo gives Bond the charge but misses the drive, he gets an inside edge that rolls past his stumps

4.2

Bond to Odoyo, no run, outstanding stuff from Bond, he pitches the ball on a perfect length outside off stump, the batsman has no room or length to work with and the ball beats the outside edge of his forward defence

4.3

Bond to Odoyo, FOUR, Bond lets loose a full toss outside off stump, Odoyo reaches out for it and drives through extra cover for four, that's the first loose ball of the day and the first boundary as well

4.4

Bond to Odoyo, no run, good length delivery outside off stump, left alone by the batsman

4.5

Bond to Odoyo, no run, he lets another one go outside off stump, that's very rare to see in the Twenty20 format

Bond to Odoyo, 1 run, Odoyo pushes hard at one outside the off stump, the ball hits the inside edge and rolls down towards fine leg for a single

Kenya 11/4   SE Bond 3-1-7-2

6.1

Bond to Odoyo, no run, he bangs it short first up, Odoyo tries to pull but gets beaten

6.2

Bond to Odoyo, no run, good length ball on off stump, Odoyo leans forward and drives to cover point

6.3

Bond to Odoyo, FOUR, a fraction too full from Bond, Odoyo uses the room outside off stump to play a lofted drive over cover, he hasn't timed it well but the outfield is quick enough for the ball to reach the boundary

6.4

Bond to Odoyo, no run, Bond returns to his impeccable line and length on off stump, defended on the front foot

6.5

Bond to Odoyo, no run, bowled short on middle and leg stump, the ball hits Odoyo's thigh and flies down leg side, McCullum flies - goalkeeper style- to his left and pulls off an acrobatic save

6.6

Bond to Odoyo, 1 run, Odoyo tries to pull one that's not that short and doesn't make proper contact

Kenya 28/4   SE Bond 4-1-12-2
