  New Zealand innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal L Vincent c Tikolo b Odoyo 0 3 4 0 0 0.00
0.4 what a start! full length on off stump, Vincent doesn't get fully forward and the ball, which swung a little away from him, finds the outside edge and is well caught at waist height at second slip by a delighted Steve Tikolo 0/1
View dismissal SP Fleming* run out (CO Obuya/†Ouma) 60 93 61 7 3 98.36
20.1 Kamande to Taylor, crazy run and an appalling error of judgment. Taylor flicked the ball to backward square, right to him, Fleming called and all Obuya, Kenya's best fielder, had to do was pick and throw accurately, which he did, and Fleming was so far short that it didn't even need the third umpire 105/2
View dismissal LRPL Taylor c & b Tikolo 85 146 107 8 1 79.43
33.4 he's gone this time - a soft pop back up to the bowler, snapped low, who doesn't even celebrate 192/3
View dismissal SB Styris c Mishra b Onyango 63 92 62 3 3 101.61
43.1 Mishra takes a good catch at long-on, a safe take in the end, keeping his eyes on it all the way. Lots of height on that skyer, but not much distance sadly for the batsman, who walks off still chewing gum 274/4
View dismissal CD McMillan c Tikolo b Ongondo 71 64 48 3 5 147.91
49.2 another slower ball, short again, straight, and the batsman miscues. That's well taken by Tikolo at midwicket, running forward and takes a comfortable catch 321/7
View dismissal JDP Oram b Odoyo 3 5 6 0 0 50.00
44.4 short and straight ball, slower too, and there's a swing and a miss to bring up Odoyo's 100th one-day wicket. That was well bowled, hitting the top of the sticks, and a timely wicket for Kenya who will now hope that will contribute towards some damage limitation at the death 280/5
View dismissal BB McCullum c Varaiya b Ongondo 6 13 9 0 0 66.66
47.6 on leg and that's whipped high inside the boundary - "Catch it!" - and indeed Varaiya holds on, dropping forward to take that on his knees. Great take 307/6

View dismissal MA Ouma run out (Vincent) 4 24 21 0 0 19.04
5.2 from Bond, Ouma on his toes, prodded into the covers, he called for a run but it seemed to be in slow motion. He was slow to set off, seemed unbothered during the run, despite Vincent bearing down on the ball, and the underarm throw found him two feet short. The third umpire was called for but Ouma wasn't hanging around ... 8/2
View dismissal DO Obuya lbw b Mason 1 8 5 0 0 20.00
2.3 straight half volley, hits Obuya on the pads as he shuffled in his crease - he didn't get that far forward - and Rudi Koertzen's finger eventually starts its slow journey towards the heavens 4/1
View dismissal RD Shah c & b Vettori 71 138 89 8 2 79.77
29.6 half volley, driven hard to Vettori's right and he was down quickly to hold an excellent low catch. There was a moment of uncertainty, but he leapt to his feet and threw the ball jubilantly in the air. 122/6
View dismissal SO Tikolo* c Vettori b Mason 7 28 16 1 0 43.75
10.5 short ball, on to him too quickly and that's skied to mid-off and Vettori hangs on for the simplest chance. Two victims now for Mason and that's the big wicket - not that Kenya ever had a realistic hope of chasing down this target, anyway 26/3
View dismissal T Mishra c Fleming b Franklin 2 2 4 0 0 50.00
11.4 gone! An outside edge goes through and it's too quick for McCullum, but he parries it with his right glove up to Fleming who casually offers one hand to snatch it 29/4
View dismissal CO Obuya run out (Franklin/Oram) 21 46 31 0 0 67.74
20.3 from Oram, spears that one in on off and that's worked to leg. Another terrible mix-up, very poor, and Obuya has been run out. Franklin, throwing in from the boundary, looks up to see both batsmen stranded at the striker's end and he has time to change his mind about where to throw it and Oram takes the bails off. There's no need for the third umpire, there's no need even for the first umpire 76/5
View dismissal TM Odoyo c Oram b Bond 42 94 67 4 1 62.68
44.2 goes to straight drive that one aerially and that's sliced up in the air to point where Oram makes no mistake 179/9
View dismissal JK Kamande b Vettori 12 21 15 0 1 80.00
35.3 Kamande steps back aiming to belt that ball out of the ground, sadly for him it was straight and he was fooled by a slightly slower ball and he was through the shot as it thunked into the stumps 149/7
View dismissal LN Onyango run out (Vincent) 6 19 17 0 0 35.29
41.6 from McMillan, comes from vaguely wide of the wicket and angles that right in at the righthander, who squeezes it into the covers. Brilliant piece of fielding by Vincent, nimble, and underarmed that one in at the stumps. The third umpire needed just the one replay for that. Vincent like a hawk, there 167/8
View dismissal PJ Ongondo c & b Franklin 4 27 21 0 0 19.04
49.2 and the match comes to an end with Franklin throwing in a consecutive bouncer which the batsman tries to hook and gets only an edge which pops up and is pouched tidily 183/10
