Titans B 292 for 7 (Wiesie 90*, Odoyo 2-40) beat Kenya 244 for 9 (Kamande 62) by 48 runs
Kenya’s warm-up for next week’s World Cup Qualifiers continued in South Africa with Jimmy Kamande cracking a 49-ball 62, but they couldn’t reach the testing target of 293 set by Titans B.
The hosts’ 292 for 7 was set up by D Wiesie’s unbeaten 90, a rollicking 56-ball innings which contained nine fours and two sixes. In addition there were fifties from M Sekota and P Matan.
Morris Ouma (47) got Kenya’s reply off to a good start, but with wickets falling at regular intervals at the other end, not even Kamande’s best efforts could loft Kenya up to their target and they fell 48 runs short.

Assistant editor Will opted against a lifetime of head-bangingly dull administration in the NHS, where he had served for two years. In 2005 came a break at Cricinfo where he slotted right in as a ferociously enthusiastic tea drinker and maker, with a penchant for using "frankly" and "marvellous". He also runs The Corridor, a cricket blog where he can be found ranting and raving about all things - some even involving the sport. He is a great-great nephew of Sir Jack Newman, the former Wellingtonian bowler who took two wickets at 127 apiece for New Zealand.
