Denmark enjoyed a successful tour of Kenya, winning all four matches played with one washed out. Although they have been playing representative sides - the main Kenyan squad has been in action against Canada - the results have still been impressive.
Denmark kicked off with a six-wicket win over a Mombasa Representative XI at Mombasa Sports Club (all games were played on the coast), bowling the home side out for 104 and then Carsten Pedersen's unbeaten 42 anchoring the chase.
The second game against a Nairobi Representative XI produced an even more emphatic win - 87 runs - as Freddie Klokker (129) and Mickey Lund (57) put on 120 for the first wicket as Denmark piled up 298 for 7. The Nairobi side were always off the pace.
The third game was rained off, but in the fourth Denmark again batted and scored 253, Klokker and Lund again getting the innings off to a good start. Whereas in the previous match the Nairobi side had got bogged down, this time they opted for all-out - some might say careless - attack and paid the price, being bowled out for 101.
The last match against Kenya A was limited to a 30-over-a-side affair as the Danes had a flight to catch. Stuck in, Kenya A reached 157 for 7, a target overtaken in the penultimate over.
