Thomas Odoyo1005525.50353301
0.4 to L Vincent, 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
44.4 to JDP Oram, 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
Peter Ongondo1006426.40335203
47.6 to BB McCullum, 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
49.2 to CD McMillan, 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
Lameck Onyango806317.87238210
43.1 to SB Styris, 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
Jimmy Kamande906106.77244220
Hiren Varaiya704005.71172110
Steve Tikolo604517.50181250
33.4 to LRPL Taylor, he's gone this time - a soft pop back up to the bowler, snapped low, who doesn't even celebrate. 192/3

Michael Mason902923.22402011
2.3 to DO Obuya, 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
10.5 to SO Tikolo, 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
Shane Bond821912.37393010
44.2 to TM Odoyo, goes to straight drive that one aerially and that's sliced up in the air to point where Oram makes no mistake. 179/9
James Franklin7.222022.72342000
11.4 to T Mishra, 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
49.2 to PJ Ongondo, 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
Craig McMillan1003903.90362100
Daniel Vettori1004524.50410304
29.6 to RD Shah, 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
35.3 to JK Kamande, 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
