Kenya 372 (Anwar 7-97) and 15 for 1 lead Pakistan Cricket Academy 277 (Manzoor 123, Varaiya 4-66, Ongondo 3-29, Tikolo 3-63) by 110 runs
Khurram Manzoor, the Pakistan Cricket Academy captain, scored 123 but there was not much support from the other batsmen as the visitors conceded a first-innings lead of 95 against Kenya in Nairobi. The second day of the four-day contest was also dominated by the captains. Manzoor's hundred followed the 170 on Saturday from his Kenyan counterpart Tikolo, who took three wickets as Pakistan succumbed against spin.
The day began on a bright note for Pakistan. Kenya, resuming on 344 for 7, were all out for 372. Anwar Ali added one more wicket to his six on the first day to end with figures of 7 for 97, and Mohammad Talha bagged the final two wickets.
Peter Ongondo struck early in Pakistan's reply, removing Umar Amin and Asad Shafiq with the score on 22. Manzoor and Fawad Alam added 67 for the third wicket before Alam became the first of four wickets for left-arm spinner Hiren Varaiya. Raheel Majeed scored 33 off 43 balls in a stand of 52, but his innings was cut short by Ongondo.
Tikolo and Varaiya shared the remaining wickets to fall in the innings. Wicketkeeper Naeem Anjum and Talha got starts, but failed to build a big partnership with Manzoor, who was the ninth batsman out. Varaiya took 4 for 66 off 13.5 overs while Ongondo bowled economically, taking three wickets and conceding just 29 off 12 overs.
Kennedy Otieno fell for the second time to Anwar as Kenya began their second innings. The hosts closed the day at 15 for 1, leading by 110 runs.
