Cheers all round for this famous win, solid and careful early batting paid off for the charge later by Odoyo and Odumbe. There were some chances put down by Zimbabwe and erratic bowling yielding 19 extras. This win means a lot for the Kenyans as they have defeated their African neighbors for the first time. We shall bring you the ceremonies soon. Kenya will play India in the semis. Kenyan fans running around the ground. The first time a non test playing nation has gone into the semi final's of a world cup.

Streak says it was a slow wicket and shots were difficult and our total was too low. Pays credit to the Kenyans for playing better than Zimbabwe Tikolo is pleased and we set our targets, he thinks he will trey to bat better in the semifinal. Regrets there are no sponsors for Kenyan cricket but wants to do well next and does not really look at the money waiting for semifinalists. The Man of the Match is Martin Suji Thats all folk and we hope you enjoyed this game as well as us, goodbye.
