Kenya 302 and 161 for 2 (Ouma 63, D Obuya 70, C Obuya 14*) beat Bermuda 281 (Hemp 97, Varaiya 5-56) and 178 (Hemp 68*, Varaiya 5-77) by 8 wickets
Scorecard

Kenya knocked off the final 79 runs to beat Bermuda in their Intercontinental Cup match at the Nairobi Gymkhana, easing to an eight-wicket win.

Maurice Ouma brought up a slick fifty from 49 balls, but he couldn't replicate the blistering strokeplay of yesterday afternoon, scooping Malachi Jones straight to mid-off for 63.

But David Obuya, the slower of the two yesterday, opened his shoulders - clubbing Jones over long-on before dispatching Rodney Trott over the same boundary for six. Trott got his man, however, when Obuya stepped to the leg-side and was beaten by a quicker delivery. Obuya's namesake, Collins, together with Tony Suji knocked off the required runs with the minimum of fuss to inflict yet another defeat on Bermuda.

Kenya now top the Intercontinental Cup table with 40 points, six ahead of Netherlands. Bermuda, though, have won just a single game on their forgettable tour of Kenya, beating Uganda in their opening match. They now travel to Sharjah to face UAE on November 8.
