Kenya off to a winning start
Kenya’s preparations in South Africa for the ICC World Cup Qualifiers got off to a good start as they beat Easterns by 76 runs in their opening match at Benoni.
They need significant contributions from the old guard to help them post 193, Steve Tikolo leading the way with 63 and Kennedy Otieno making 46. Easterns were always off the pace, Peter Ongondo (4 for 26) reducing them to 52 for 5 before Jimmy Kamande (3 for 15) polished off the tail.
