Collins Obuya: Using the long handle

Collins Obuya
A tail-ender in the search for rapid runs is almost always a joy to watch. The bat swings at unorthodox angles, yet earns the batsman four or six orthodox runs with one single stroke. Collins Obuya, the leg-spinner who impressed so many with his five-wicket hall in Kenya's shock win against Sri Lanka, caught eyes with his batting heroics against Bangladesh, helping in the quest for quick runs towards the end of the innings. Hitting 22 off just 21 balls and 19 minutes, including one four and one nicely hit six, Obuya played an innings that enabled his side to scrape past the 200-run mark - which, as it proved, was plenty for Bangladesh.

Maurice Odumbe: Tight-fisted at Johannesburg

Former Kenya skipper Maurice Odumbe has always given the impression of being a cerebral cricketer. His eyes gleam with intelligence on the field, and his bowling demonstrates that trademark as well. Against Kenya at Johannesburg, Odumbe bowled his off-breaks cleverly, mixing his deliveries up beautifully to register his all-time best figures in one-day internationals - four for 38 off 10 tight overs. It may have happened regardless, but Odumbe's effort ensured that Bangladesh were effectively kept out of the match and, most importantly, paved the way for Kenya to enter the Super Six.

Joseph Angara: A busy substitute

Joseph Angara
Considering that he was the 12th man, the ball certainly followed Joseph Angara around the ground during Kenya's Pool B encounter against Bangladesh at Johannesburg. Hitherto having registered only one catch in 15 one-day internationals, Angara trebled his tally in a single game, taking two good catches to dismiss an on- song Tushar Imran and an equally menacing Akram Khan.Tushar fell first, hitting the ball to Angara off Maurice Odumbe, and Akram Khan, after holding out for most of the innings, gave Steve Tikolo one of three wickets, holing out to Angara. Kenya has set high standards of fielding over the short period in which they have been in international cricket, and Angara certainly lived up to those standards at Johannesburg.
