Kenya 406 (R Patel 130, Mishra 57, Pathan 3-76) and 129 for 6 (Mishra 38*, H Patel 4-41) beat Canada 358 (Kumar 89, Rehman 51, Otieno 3-50) and 175 (H Patel 93, NN Odhiambo 5-43) by four wickets
Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

Hiral Patel's heroics with the bat and ball couldn't save Canada from a four-wicket defeat against Kenya in the Intercontinental Cup. Patel struck a doughty 93 on the fourth day, scoring more than half of his side's second innings total, as the other batsmen fell to Nehemiah Odhiambo's pace. Canada folded for 175, leaving Kenya a target of 128 for victory.

Kenya's chase was hardly confident; they lost Irfan Karim in the first over and then Patel made inroads with his left-arm spin. It was left to Tanmay Mishra, who followed his first-innings half-century with a calm, unbeaten 38, to steady the Kenya innings and then guide the side to a win.

    Forget about Canada cricket. I had been in Canada for couple of months and amazed to see that cricket is played by only indian sub continent recent immigrants. Listen again, just recent ones. These recent immigrants live in ghettoes and get selected as there is noone else. No kids from White or native community plays here. Even immigrants from Australia or England shun the game here it seems as it is hijacked by sub continent immigrants. No coaching kids camps nowhere. Everywhere you see soccer,rugby,hockey baseball camps for tiny primary kids but nothing of cricket. I am convinced that if the game remains with indian subcontinent immigrants in Canada there is no hope there. MAinstream communities must be involved to promote the game .Otherwise it a waste and money used by new immigrants only.
