After being reduced to 126 for 9, the number 11 player, Peter Ongondo walked in. He was expected to partner Jimmy Kamande who was batting at the other end. The last wicket partnership soared to 66 runs between the two, with Ongondo scoring 36 off 42 deliveries including 2 fours and 1 six. With his wicket, Kenya fell for 192.

South Africa was down to 119 for 9 against New Zealand in the sixth match of their bilateral ODI series, owing to their awful batting display. Makhaya Ntini was the last man in. He joined Albie Morkel at the other end. Much different than his teammates, Ntini showed some intent with the bat, and runs started coming off the last wicket partnership. Ntini scored a 35-ball 42 including 3 fours and 2 sixes in a phenomenal knock. Both the batsmen remained unbeaten at the end of 50 overs. Ntini was 42 not out while Morkel was 23 not out. Together, they stitched a decent enough total of 186 runs for 9 for the Proteas.
