Peter Ongondo1005315.30377130
46.6 to E Chigumbura, and now he pulls off a well-timed catch, Elton swung this one with power down the ground, but Mishra timed his leap at the precise moment to take the ball that was sailing over his head. 270/5
Elijah Otieno1006126.103711100
9.4 to BRM Taylor, Kenya have got the big one, Taylor departs to a nothing shot, this one was not on the pads, he still tries to flick it away, it was outside off stump, he did not get across and ended up scooping it in the air to mid on. 36/2
47.6 to CR Ervine, he is gone now, went for a forceful punch to a length ball and chopped it on to the stumps. 276/6
Nehemiah Odhiambo1015815.80334230
8.6 to RW Chakabva, 135.7 kph, and Nehemiah strikes in his first over, lovely delivery, very close to off stump, getting him to push forward at it, moves away off to take the outside edge, and David Obuya gleefully accepts the dolly. 32/1
James Ngoche1006816.80299010
32.4 to T Taibu, that's lbw! Taibu attempts the reverse sweep and misses. The ball hits him rather straight on off and middle line. Umpire Dharmasena raises the finger quickly. Taibu wants a review, but it's futile. That would have hit the middle of middle. Start the car .... 165/4

Chris Mpofu602714.50244020
0.5 to DO Obuya, and he gets rewards for some lovely bowling, fuller and angled in on the stumps, he was caught by surprise, and took it on the pads, he is a goner,says the umpire. 3/1
Ray Price712022.85344000
7.3 to SO Tikolo, that looks to be the end of Tikolo for one final time, he went back to one that hurried on, missed the waft and was struck on the pads in front of leg stump, umpire Dharmasena raised the finger right away, Tikolo goes for the review, but to no avail, that is taking out leg stump, in a lovely gesture, all the Zimbabwe players rush to shake hands with Tikolo as he walks back, the grand old man of Kenyan cricket gets a standing ovation from the sparse Kolkata crowd who know their cricket only too well, the Kenyan dressing room applauds as one, the Zimbabwe players continue clapping in unison right till the very end, the end of the Kenyan legend. 27/3
11.4 to AA Obanda, Price keeps firing them in, there is no getting away, this one strikes him on the pads in front of the stumps again as he pushes forward, pad first and then bat it seems, umpire Dharmasena thought so, and gave him out, they go for the review, and it only confirms the umpire's decision. 44/5
Prosper Utseya904715.22296000
10.3 to T Mishra, Mishra has thrown it away, he is such a fine player of spin, but that won't please him one bit, with fine leg up, he goes for the sweep, and gets a meek top edge that settles in to that man's hands, Utseya is in business right away. 44/4
Greg Lamb702123.00282000
19.5 to TM Odoyo, strikes him on the pads right in front of middle as he goes back and misses the waft across the line, that looked dead if there is no inside edge, it lodged between the two pads, umpire Dharmasena thinks there is some wood on that, Zimbabwe want the review, that is hitting middle of middle, there does not seem to be any bat, and that is the end of Thomas Odoyo. 73/6
24.6 to RR Patel, falls finally on his last attempt, goes for the slog sweep, seen three forms of the shot in three deliveries, this one is hit the farthest of the three, but not beyond the man at deep midwicket who takes a well-judged catch on the boundary. 95/7
Graeme Cremer702824.00291210
25.2 to PJ Ongondo, Ongondo departs second ball, tossed up on leg stump, and turns to strike him pad first as he pushes forward, right away umpire Dharmasena raises the finger, Zimbabwe need two more. 101/8
35.6 to JO Ngoche, that will be the end of it all, Ngoche came down the track and looked to launch this one over deep midwicket, but only got it as far as Mpofu on the boundary. 147/10
