26.6

Flintoff to Kamande, no run, ooh much better appeal here, and it looks out - but Pete Parker turns it down! Good grief, cricket's an odd game. That was plumb

28.3

Flintoff to Kamande, no run, driven back to the bowler

28.4

Flintoff to Kamande, no run, no shot, shouldering arms to a straight one! Never a good plan, frankly

29.1

Panesar to Kamande, 1 run, defended on the front foot

29.6

30.2

Anderson to Kamande, 1 run, swinging into the batsman who defends it back to the bowler

Kenya 121/6   JK Kamande 3* (11b)

31.5

Panesar to Kamande, 1 run, the wrong line from Monty, on leg stump and it's easily swept

32.1

Anderson to Kamande, no run, played down to gully and that's straight to the fielder

32.2

Anderson to Kamande, no run, straight, a touch of room allows the righthander to work that to leg, but falls over a bit in that shot

32.3

Anderson to Kamande, 1 run, outside off and that's played off the back foot into the covers - a mix-up and that really should have been run out, but Bell's throw to Anderson was a bit too hesitant, and his own work was hesitant as well

Kenya 131/6   JK Kamande 5* (15b)

33.1

Panesar to Kamande, no run, on the sixpence and the batsman can only defend

33.2

Panesar to Kamande, no run, on middle and the batsman pads up to that one, with a big stride forward. "How is he?!" cries Nixon. He is not out

33.3

Panesar to Kamande, FOUR, a good shot from Kamande, sweeping that one fine. "Kamanding shot" arf-arfs Gnasho in the corner

33.4

Panesar to Kamande, 2 runs, on leg and that's swept round again, but not as fine, and there's room for the two

33.5

Panesar to Kamande, no run, a play and a miss

33.6

Panesar to Kamande, no run, a hop, skip but no jump, from the batsman, creeping forward and nearly unintentionally doing the splits in driving that one to cover

Kenya 138/6   JK Kamande 11* (21b 1x4)

34.3

Collingwood to Kamande, no run, driven to the covers this time

34.4

Collingwood to Kamande, no run, short, a scoop outside off, misses and Nixon quickly whips the bails off just because he can and not because the stumping was genuinely on

34.5

Collingwood to Kamande, FOUR, drags that short and towards leg - Kamande doesn't miss out, picking that off at knee height and playing it through fine leg

34.6

Collingwood to Kamande, 1 run, outside off and a mis-timed single skews to mid-on

Kenya 144/6   JK Kamande 16* (25b 2x4)

35.1

Panesar to Kamande, 1 run, timed off the back foot inside the cover boundary - they look for two, but find only one

35.6

Panesar to Kamande, no run, good delivery, Kamande playing and missing at one which curves deliciously away from him

Kenya 148/6   JK Kamande 17* (27b 2x4)

36.4

Collingwood to Kamande, OUT, steps back to give himself room to the slower ball, but the offcutter hits off stump with the batsman swinging across the line

JK Kamande b Collingwood 17 (31m 28b 2x4 0x6) SR: 60.71

Kenya 151/7   JK Kamande 17 (28b 2x4)
