Kenya 202 for 3 (Patel 59*, Mishra 57*) trail Canada 358 by 156 runs

A century partnership between Tanmay Mishra and Rakep Patel saw Kenya fightback against Canada on the second day in Dubai. At 95 for 3 Kenya were facing a sizable deficit but Mishra and Patel got together to put their side in a strong position.

Both players made half-centuries with Patel's the livelier, coming in just 54 balls with seven fours and a six. Mishra was more sedate and had faced 119 balls by the close for his 57 not out. Together, the pair had got Kenya back into the game.

They had made a poor start in reply to Canada's solid total, losing openers Irfan Karim and Duncan Allan after both had made starts. Captain Collins Obuya also settled with six fours but he fell top-edging Nikhil Dutta's off spin to leave his side struggling.

At that stage Canada were right on top having added 112 to their overnight total with useful contributions from the tail, the pick of which, 32 from No. 11 Henry Osinde, included three fours and two sixes. The tenth wicket added 57 as Canada took control of the game before the response from Mishra and Patel.

Tanmay Mishra is a talented cricketer. His technique and timing is exquisite. Really goes to show that Kenyan cricket is growing.

I would love to see Tanmay Mishra play for IPL 2013. If Tanmay was given an oppurtunity to play as an Indian in the IPL he will do wonders for cricket admirers and Kenyan cricket.

Good Luck Mishra
