Pressure map: New Zealand vs Kenya
Srinivas Bhogle | March 21, 2007 17:58 IST
Although a target of 332 was never 'get-able', one expected Kenya, with Tikolo in good form, to get to about 225.
Kenya's opening pressure index (PI) was 182; and it hardly fell below 180 as Kenya were rocked by four dismissals even before the first hour was completed.
R D Shah and T M Odoyo batted well enough to prevent complete humiliation, but after 29/4 in 12 overs, New Zealand probably stepped off the gas.
Such one-sided matches aren't a great advertisement for the pressure index; it stays well above 150 if the minnows are chasing and well below 50 if the minnows are defending.
