Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

Shem Ngoche's four-wicket haul set up Kenya's convincing seven-wicket win over Netherlands in the T20 Quadrangular series in Windhoek on Saturday.

Kenya immediately reaped the rewards of putting Netherlands into bat, as Nehemiah Odhiambo struck with the first ball of the match, taking a return catch to dismiss Netherlands wicketkeeper Wesley Barresi. The batting side never recovered from that start, losing wickets at regular intervals, and were dismissed for 113 in the 19th over. Ngoche was the most successful bowler, though he was expensive, picking up four wickets for 34 runs off four overs.

In reply, Kenya needed just 74 balls to achieve the target, as Alex Obanda, Collins Obuya and Rakep Patel guided the chase with useful partnerships. Obuya and Patel put on an unbeaten 69-run stand for the fourth wicket, with Patel contributing 46 to the stand. His innings, which came off 20 balls, included five sixes and two fours.
