Peter Ongondo1017227.20338242
2.6 to HM Amla, Shortish delivery, Amla pushes just a bit too hard at it for defending, scoopss it straight back to the bowler. He makes no mistake and that's the first breakthough for the Kenyans on South African soil this series.. 13/1
12.2 to HH Gibbs, Another caught and bowl! Gibbs coms down the track, scoops it up to the bowler who takes an extremely good catch. Never easy to take the catch of your own bowling and that one was a bit of a flyer.. 74/2
Thomas Odoyo3.402206.00133011
Nehemiah Odhiambo1005935.90304150
39.6 to JL Ontong, There we go, the extra delivery getting him the wicket. Ontong goes for the big heave over deep square leg, but that's a real long carry to make and Ontong got bit of an top edge. No mistake with the catch. Well-taken.. 250/5
46.6 to JP Duminy, Gone! that brings to an end the great innings of Duminy. Going for the big shot over the top just not clearing the fielder at long off.. 310/6
48.6 to JA Morkel, GONE! Slower delivery. Morkel fooled and goes across the line, misses by a mile and middle stump is hit hard with the bang of the ball and the bails find themselves dislodged. Goodbye Mr. Morkel, Mr. Dangerman is gone.. 326/7
Elijah Otieno906617.33208050
18.1 to AB de Villiers, Comes down the track, ball is just too straight. De Villiers misses, hits his thigh pad and goes on to hit the stumps. Very strange way to get out. Seemed to have his stumps covered. Can feel a bit unlucky though can De Villiers.. 103/3
Jimmy Kamande5.204308.0683021
Hiren Varaiya804615.75203100
34.1 to JH Kallis, Gone! Kallis goes for the cut shot, gets a thickish edge, but the fielder takes a good catch low to the ground. Good innings from Kallis coming to an end.. 211/4

Monde Zondeki805016.25286130
6.6 to SR Waters, Edge this time! Ball shortish again but a bit straight this time and the batsman finds himselfs cramped for space and only manages to snick it through to Boucher who makes no mistake. One down... 24/1
Albie Morkel1013313.30493130
46.6 to PJ Ongondo, Played on. Gets an inside edge onto his pads from where the ball skids on to hit the stumps. 9 down and the Kenyan ship is on the verge off sinking.. 172/9

Jacques Kallis40701.75180000
Jean-Paul Duminy8.103133.79271100
21.5 to AA Obanda, Quicker one from Duminy. Obanda goes for the sweep, too full as well. That's hitting middle and leg three quarters of the way up. Cheers Cheers.. 87/3
27.4 to TM Odoyo, GONE! Leading edge from Odoyo as he tries to work the ball to the leg side. Just scoops it right back to Duminy who gets his revenge. Oh so sweet.. 109/5
49.1 to DO Obuya, Gone! Holds out at deep midwicket. Kallis takes an easy catch. That's the end of the game. Thank you for joining us here at, please join s again for the rest of the series and also any other domestic/international cricket games. South Africa win this one by 159 runs.. 177/10
Johan Botha1021941.90410000
24.1 to SO Tikolo, Gone! Played back to a fullish delivery and goes across the line of the ball. That's hitting all three. Umpire Marais Erasmus has no doubts about that one.. 95/4
32.3 to JK Kamande, Gone! Bowled! Yorker, full and straight, Kamande plays all around it. Kenya 6 down.. 118/6
43.1 to NN Odhiambo, Gone! Full toss right at the stumps, hits the pads, quicker pace, right in front. Cheers.. 164/7
45.2 to HA Varaiya, What a catch by Amla! Varaiya goes for the big heave-ho over long on. Amla comes charging in and times the dive to perfection. Takes a very good catch.. 168/8
