ICC World Cup - 23rd match, Group C

England v Kenya

England won by 7 wickets (with 60 balls remaining)

0.1

Anderson to Ouma, no run, a cracking ball to begin with! Angling into the batsman before nipping away, massively. Virtually unplayable

0.2

Anderson to Ouma, no run, ooh and he's squared up here, squirting it into the covers. More outswing, and excellent pace for Anderson

0.3

Anderson to Ouma, no run, on middle-and-off, swinging away but Ouma jabs down on it - albeit with his feet pointing back down the pitch

0.4

Anderson to Ouma, no run, fuller this time from Anderson; Ouma, back in his crease, is watchful in defence, shuffling across his stumps to counter the swing

0.5

Anderson to Ouma, no run, in the channel outside his off stump, but it's a touch too short this time and Ouma rightly leaves it well alone

0.6

Anderson to Ouma, 1 run, and he's off the mark with a solid tickle down to fine leg, as Anderson rather loses his line

Kenya 1/0   JM Anderson 1-0-1-0

2.1

Anderson to Shah, no run, ooh, very wide from Mr Anderson - maybe we should all call cricketers more formally, ala the 19th Century - and swinging wider of Shah who leaves alone

2.2

Anderson to Shah, no run, good line, this, from Anderson, attacking Shah's off stump. A touch too short. Shah goes back and punches it neatly into the covers

2.3

Anderson to Shah, no run, ah, brilliant ball. As perfect as a non-wicket-taking delivery can get, drawing Shah into the stroke before it swings away from his on-the-drive-defensive prod

2.4

Anderson to Shah, 1 run, too full, on leg, and worked to mid-on for a single. Shah's off the mark

2.5

Anderson to Ouma, no run, touch too wide, Ouma leaves well alone

2.6

Anderson to Ouma, no run, again, too wide - no need to touch those, and it swings wider still of Ouma's arm-shouldering

Kenya 3/0   JM Anderson 2-0-2-0

4.1

Anderson to Ouma, no run, no no no. Too wide from Anderson, swinging wider still and it's left alone

4.2

Anderson to Ouma, no run, ooh and he nearly fishes at this before deciding, rightly so, to leave alone

4.3

Anderson to Ouma, no run, more massive banana swing, booming away from the batsman like a big boomer. Too wide

4.4

Anderson to Ouma, 1 run, and the inswinger into his pads, pushed to leg with ease

4.5

Anderson to Shah, OUT, gone! Well, Shah should've come forward there. Back in his crease, the ball kept low and he just couldn't get his bat down in time

RD Shah b Anderson 4 (21m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 36.36

4.6

Anderson to Suji, no run, very well bowled, another inswinger. Suji steps to leg, nervously, and defends with a very wishy wafty bat

Kenya 10/1   JM Anderson 3-0-3-1

6.1

Anderson to Ouma, no run, oh and another cracking ball swinging away from a very suspect forward defence. Inches away from edging it

6.2

Anderson to Ouma, 4 leg byes, and this is Anderson's problem. His stray balls. Down the leg side and flicked fine of Nixon who can't get a hand to it

6.3

Anderson to Ouma, no run, good length, good line, but brick-walled into the covers

6.4

Anderson to Ouma, FOUR, fine shot as Anderson drifts it on his pads, looking for swing, and he whips it just in front of square for four

6.5

Anderson to Ouma, 1 run, ooh, tentatively comes forward to squirt this past point. Reasonably solidly played, in the end, but good swing from him again

6.6

Anderson to Suji, no run, back onto his stumps - not literally, obviously - and it's punched off the back foot

Kenya 24/1   JM Anderson 4-0-8-1

8.1

Anderson to Suji, no run, off the back foot and smacked into the covers

8.2

Anderson to Suji, 1 run, short of a length, whipped past midwicket

8.3

Anderson to Ouma, no run, again a touch too short but he can't bisect the gap at cover

8.4

Anderson to Ouma, no run, an ugly, cross-batted smite which gets him a thick inside edge that fortunately evades his off stump

8.5

Anderson to Ouma, no run, again no foot movement; again a cross-batted mow which gets him nothing

8.6

Anderson to Ouma, 1 leg bye, but they pick up a leg bye here as Anderson loses his line

Kenya 28/1   JM Anderson 5-0-9-1

10.1

Anderson to Ouma, OUT, swinging into the batsman, who pushes at it off the back foot to Collingwood at mid-on. A shimmy to his right, and he takes the simplest of catches

MA Ouma c Collingwood b Anderson 13 (46m 45b 1x4 0x6) SR: 28.88

10.2

Anderson to Tikolo, no run, ooh, very well bowled! Late inswing, at impressive pace, and Tikolo defends off the back foot

10.3

Anderson to Tikolo, no run, cut, hard, but straight to point. A loose delivery from Anderson which deserved four, but Tikolo finds point

10.4

Anderson to Tikolo, FOUR, ah, there we go, that's what Tikolo was attempting the previous ball. He crashes this in front of square for four

10.5

Anderson to Tikolo, FOUR, edged! Well, was that intentional? Perhaps. I'll give it to the batsman. A firm slash which races between keeper and slip

10.6

Anderson to Tikolo, no run, pushed to mid-off

Kenya 43/2   JM Anderson 6-0-17-2

30.1

Anderson to Tikolo, 1 run, crashed off the back foot behind square

30.2

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

30.3

Anderson to Tikolo, no run, more inswing, and it's firmly defended

30.4

Anderson to Tikolo, 2 runs, ah, neat stroke, just driving that calmly out past the covers

30.5

Anderson to Tikolo, no run, driven to mid-on

30.6

Anderson to Tikolo, 1 leg bye, on leg stump, whipped to midwicket

Kenya 124/6   JM Anderson 7-0-21-2

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

32.4

Anderson to Tikolo, no run, overthrow potential there and Vaughan's hands are on his head as he misses that one

32.5

Anderson to Tikolo, no run, drifts into the leg and he tries to rush that one to square, but doesn't time it properly

32.6

Anderson to Tikolo, 1 wide, Anderson wings that one down leg, his head right down as usual as he released it, and the batsman gamely chases, but is too late on the shot

32.6

Anderson to Tikolo, no run, plays that one down off the back foot behind point

Kenya 132/6   JM Anderson 8-0-23-2

38.1

Anderson to Tikolo, no run, defended right over the ball this time

38.2

Anderson to Tikolo, 1 run, played into the covers and that's a quick single

38.3

Anderson to Onyango, 1 run, pushed right up there and that's driven back to the man at long-off

38.4

Anderson to Tikolo, no run, driven to cover

38.5

Anderson to Tikolo, 1 run, cheeky shot from Tikolo, just presenting the face of the bat outside off to turn it to midwicket

38.6

Anderson to Onyango, 1 run, golf swing and that's sliced into the sand trap at cover

Kenya 158/7   JM Anderson 9-0-27-2
