ICC World Cup, 2006/07 / Wicket commentary

ICC World Cup - 3rd match, Group C

Canada v Kenya

Kenya won by 7 wickets (with 40 balls remaining)

10.3

Odoyo to Samad, OUT, 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

AM Samad c Tikolo b Odoyo 15 (46m 29b 3x4 0x6) SR: 51.72

Canada 40/1   GEF Barnett 18* (38b 4x4)   TM Odoyo 5.3-1-14-1

14.3

Ongondo to Barnett, OUT, 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

GEF Barnett c Mishra b Ongondo 41 (65m 50b 9x4 0x6) SR: 82.00

Canada 73/2   A Bagai 8* (13b 1x4)   PJ Ongondo 6.3-0-27-1

25.3

Varaiya to Bagai, OUT, 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

A Bagai st †Ouma b Varaiya 19 (60m 48b 2x4 0x6) SR: 39.58

Canada 102/3   IS Billcliff 15* (32b 1x4)   HA Varaiya 5.3-2-9-1

30.2

Kamande to Davison, OUT, 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

JM Davison b Kamande 8 (12m 19b 1x4 0x6) SR: 42.10

Canada 115/4   IS Billcliff 20* (42b 1x4)   JK Kamande 5.2-0-13-1

34.1

Kamande to Qaiser Ali, OUT, played round the ball - it didn't turn that much, but it was flatter and quicker... and it sneaked through bat and pad

Qaiser Ali b Kamande 6 (10m 16b 1x4 0x6) SR: 37.50

Canada 127/5   IS Billcliff 24* (49b 1x4)   JK Kamande 7.1-0-16-2

40.3

Tikolo to Billcliff, OUT, a soft end for Billcliff, popping a nothing shot back to Tikolo who crashes down with agility to take a low two-handed catch

IS Billcliff c & b Tikolo 34 (85m 63b 2x4 0x6) SR: 53.96

Canada 146/6   AA Mulla 9* (24b)   SO Tikolo 4.3-0-15-1

46.3

Tikolo to Mulla, OUT, outside off and that's driven without much power to cover

AA Mulla c Ongondo b Tikolo 25 (45m 39b 0x4 1x6) SR: 64.10

Canada 175/7   S Dhaniram 13* (21b 1x4)   SO Tikolo 7.3-0-24-2

47.4

Odoyo to Bhatti, OUT, 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

U Bhatti run out 1 (4m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Canada 185/8   S Dhaniram 22* (26b 1x4 1x6)   TM Odoyo 6.4-1-20-1

48.3

Tikolo to Dhaniram, OUT, reverse sweep straight to third man, more confusion, and Cummins is going after that - he was well stranded at the non-striker's end

AC Cummins run out 1 (5m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Canada 187/9   S Dhaniram 23* (28b 1x4 1x6)   SO Tikolo 8.3-0-34-2

49.6

Odoyo to Dhaniram, 1 run, OUT, 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

H Osinde run out 1 (4m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Canada 199/10   S Dhaniram 34* (35b 3x4 1x6)   TM Odoyo 8-1-32-1
