14.3

Wijekoon to Obanda, OUT, yorker length again, on the leg and middle line, squeezed out with the help of a inside edge to short fine leg. Obanda calls for a run and rushes across but Obuya stays rooted - it was Obanda's call as it went behind the wicket - and Obanda is run out as both end up at the same end.

Kenya 83/8   LN Onyango 2* (2b)   G Wijekoon 2.2-0-9-1

19.3

Dilshan to Ongondo, OUT, That's it, it's all over. Tossed-up, on the middle stump line, tries a slog-sweep but ends up ballooning it to cover. Since Odoyo will not bat - absent hurt - Sri Lanka have wrapped up a massive victory

PJ Ongondo c Jayawardene b Dilshan 3 (3m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

Kenya 88/10   LN Onyango 4* (4b)   TM Dilshan 1.3-0-4-2
