Gujarat Cricket Association XI eased to an innings victory over Kenya at the Gymkhana Club Ground in Nairobi. Gujarat's victory centered around a ten-wicket match haul from offspinner Mohnish Parmar and four centuries from their batsmen.

After opting to field, Parmar helped Gujarat skittle out the hosts for 221. Collins Obuya top scored with 78 but in vain. Gujarat's batsmen responded in ruthless fashion with opener Jay Desai making 129, Pratharesh Parmar scoring an unbeaten double-century, captain Niraj Patel starring with 171 and Bhargav Merai cashing in with an unbeaten 109. Gujarat amassed 704 before declaring and leaving Kenya with a mammoth task.

Collins Obuya bettered his first-innings effort with a century and was supported this time by his brother David, who chipped in with 57. But Kenya ended up losing their last seven wickets for 55 runs, Mohnish Parmar grabbing 5 for 74, to complete a winless tour for the hosts.
