    Australia v Kenya

    First of all, congratulations to Brett Lee on an absolutely awesome hat trick.

    Secondly, congratulations to Kenya for not capitulating against their more illustrious opponents. For them to recover from 3-3 and go on to post a total of 174-8 is a prodigious feat. Note that. 8 wickets down. They were not all out.

    Anyone now who says they were not worthy of a place in the SuperSixes can, in my opinion, go and boil their collective heads.

    I haven't seen any of the match yet but I've heard that good old Kennedy Otieno/Oboya did not break anything. When I heard the commentry on the radio it seemed as if he had shattered his elbow.

    More power to Brett Lee's elbow. He cut short his wicket celebration as soon as he realised that the batsman was hurt, then rushed down to see how he was. He looked really concerned.

    If he was really concerned about hurting players he would slow down :rolleyes:

    I recall he did a simalar thing in the 3rd Test vs England @ Perth when he busted A.Tudor's eye open.

    Yeah but to show he was sorry he bowled a load of rubbish for the rest of the series

    WOW!!! :O :O :O

    Australia slump! Karim takes 2-2-0-3!

    50-1, 98-2, 109-3, 117-4, 117-5!

    53 runs or 5 wickets...can Kenya do it?

    Add to that Gilchrist was dropped by Martin Suji at mid on on the score 55. Then it would have been 55/2 and then Gilchrist disturbed Obuya's rhythm otherwise he would have been dangerous as well.

    What the hec is Karim doing in there :wow:

    8-6-2-3...this is awesome!

    If he keeps it under 3 runs by the time his 10 are over it will be the most economical figures ever...

    but with only 4 more runs to win, the match probably won't last that long

    Just goes to show that a bit of belief goes a long, long way.

    Well done, Kenya - spirited try.

    Why should he?

    It's not always the bowlers fault that batsman gets hit.

    Nope, but they don't help the situation :saint:

    As for the match a great display by Kenya, if only they had shown that fight from the start and kept it going through the bad period that Gilly gave them.

    Mind you personally I found it nice to see Symmo and Harvey but on the all important pair, to guide Australia home... espically after all the stick they get for not being up to the job, the Aussies fans owe them a big thank-you today.... You could just see it though Kenya braking the pair early and with only the tail to come and 60 odd runs to score, what might have been
