Scorecard and ball-by-ball details
Canada finished day three with a 11-run lead over Kenya, with eight wickets in hand. Tanmay Mishra and Rakep Patel had Kenya in a solid position coming into the day, but Canada were able to strike in the first over itself, with Jimmy Hansra, their captain, getting Mishra leg before. Patel continueed to soldier on, as he and Maurice Ouma put on a 98-run partnership, before Ouma fell leg before to Nikhil Dutta. Patel hung around for his maiden first-class century, finishing on 130 as he too fell lbw. Shemi Ngoche and Nelson Odhiambo each contributed 35 as Kenya were finally dismissed for 406. Rayyan Pathan and Hansra finished top wicket-takers with three apiece.
Canada, in their reply, got off to a shake start as they lost opener Ruvindu Gunasekera and Nitish Kumar in the space of six balls, to leave them at a precarious 12 for 2. Hiral Patel and Raza-ur-Rehman were left to rebuild the innings, and they put on a restrained 47 runs off 157 balls to help steady the ship.
