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

Kenya 39/2   SO Tikolo 4* (3b 1x4)   JM Anderson 5.4-0-13-2

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

Kenya 43/2   SO Tikolo 8* (4b 2x4)   JM Anderson 5.5-0-17-2

Bopara to Tikolo, (no ball) FOUR, overstepped and that's driven through mid-off, lovely timing from Stevie there, just caressing his hands through the line

Kenya 52/2   SO Tikolo 13* (9b 3x4)   RS Bopara 0.2-0-6-0

Kenya 81/4   SO Tikolo 33* (36b 5x4)   PD Collingwood 3.2-0-12-1

Mahmood to Tikolo, FOUR, outside off, wide, and a firm outside edge races through third man

Collingwood to Obuya, FOUR, and he stands tall, takes a heavy step down the ground and smites it with gross power past Collingwood for four

Kenya 94/4   CO Obuya 6* (10b 1x4)   PD Collingwood 4.3-0-19-1

Collingwood to Obuya, FOUR, have some of that. Again drifting into his pads, a clean, well-timed pick-up over midwicket gives him four. Well placed and extremely well timed too

Kenya 99/4   CO Obuya 10* (13b 2x4)   PD Collingwood 5-0-24-1

Panesar to Tikolo, FOUR, oh fine shot, crashing this one backward of square. Too short from Monty

Kenya 103/5   SO Tikolo 45* (49b 7x4)   MS Panesar 0.5-0-4-0

Panesar to Tikolo, FOUR, just short of a length, crashed behind square - too wide and it gets what it deserves. A big four.

Kenya 128/6   SO Tikolo 61* (73b 8x4)   MS Panesar 4.3-0-13-0

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

Kenya 136/6   JK Kamande 9* (18b 1x4)   MS Panesar 5.3-0-19-0

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

Kenya 143/6   JK Kamande 15* (24b 2x4)   PD Collingwood 5.5-0-29-1
