View dismissal GEF Barnett c Mishra b Ongondo 41 65 50 9 0 82.00
14.3 what a catch! What a catch. One of those you never want to be under - the ball was hit high - and higher - downwind from a mistimed pull. Mishra takes his time to have a quick glance to see where the rope is, takes a few steps back, and allows himself six or seven inches inside the rope, taking the ball at head height, palms upwards 73/2
View dismissal AM Samad c Tikolo b Odoyo 15 46 29 3 0 51.72
10.3 short, wide and that's gone! That's a disappointing end to Samad's innings, cutting straight to backward point for a catch that can only be described as regulation 40/1
View dismissal A Bagai st †Ouma b Varaiya 19 60 48 2 0 39.58
25.3 ah! That should have been out stumped by a mile... instead it was just by a whisker. The batsman raced right down the track and would have been well, well out if the stumping had been taken first time - but the bat's just in the air as he tries to slide it back. A deserved wicket for Varaiya, there 102/3
View dismissal IS Billcliff c & b Tikolo 34 85 63 2 0 53.96
40.3 a soft end for Billcliff, popping a nothing shot back to Tikolo who crashes down with agility to take a low two-handed catch 146/6
View dismissal JM Davison* b Kamande 8 12 19 1 0 42.10
30.2 he's gone! Davison is gone! That's a huge wicket, bowled neck and crop and it's another deserved wicket for the spinners. Davison was completely deceived by that one which nipped right back in at him and took his stumps and Kamande's shimmy-shake of a celebration, while not quite Sreesanth-esque, is nevertheless a treat 115/4
View dismissal Qaiser Ali b Kamande 6 10 16 1 0 37.50
34.1 played round the ball - it didn't turn that much, but it was flatter and quicker... and it sneaked through bat and pad 127/5
View dismissal AA Mulla c Ongondo b Tikolo 25 45 39 0 1 64.10
46.3 outside off and that's driven without much power to cover 175/7
S Dhaniram not out 34 40 35 3 1 97.14
View dismissal U Bhatti run out (Mishra/†Ouma) 1 4 2 0 0 50.00
47.4 from Odoyo, horrible flash - stepping back to that one for a waft. But, hello, some even more horrible cricket... The keeper lobbed it back to the bowler, but it went over his head, and the covering fielder returned to the keeper. Meanwhile, Bhatti had decided the run was on, but was left stranded when Dhaniram refused to set off. Oh dear 185/8
View dismissal AC Cummins run out (Odoyo/†Ouma) 1 5 3 0 0 33.33
48.3 Tikolo to Dhaniram, reverse sweep straight to third man, more confusion, and Cummins is going after that - he was well stranded at the non-striker's end 187/9
View dismissal H Osinde run out (Varaiya/†Ouma) 1 4 2 0 0 50.00
49.6 Odoyo to Dhaniram, short, on leg, and that's worked out to cover - the run-out was a direct hit but he way out; just trying to get one final boost 199/10
