Canada 203 beat Kenya A 193 by ten runs

Canada got their tour of Africa off to a winning start with a 10-run victory over Kenya A at Ruaraka Sports Club.

Canada were stuck in by the Kenyans and struggled throughout their innings, with none of their batsmen able to go on and make a decent score as they ended on 203. Moses Otieno and Dominic Wesonga shared three wickets while Ashif Mulla top scored with 36.

Kenya started solidly to reach 67 for 1 but lost regular wickets and fell short.

With Canada set to meet the full Kenyan side in the Intercontinental Cup later this week, Steve Tikolo, the captain, said his side were ready. "The team is alright and we have been in intensive training for three weeks where we have worked on rectifying our mistakes," he told The Standard. "We believe we will put a good performance to lay a platform to reach the Intercontinental Cup final next year as well as prepare for the next World Cup."
