Bowlers set up large Kenya win

ESPNcricinfo staff

Kenya 132 for 4 (Mishra 34*) beat Namibia 129 (van Schoor 22, Nehemiah Odhiambo 2-21, Nelson Odhiambo 3-31) by six wickets

It was an one-sided affair at Windhoek as Kenya's bowlers, led by the Odhiambo duo, bowled out Namibia for 129 to set up a six-wicket win. Kenya needed just under 31 overs to secure the win.

Kenya captain Collins Obuya won the toss and his bowlers responded by reducing the hosts to 15 for 3. Nehemiah Odhiambo got rid of the openers, while Sarel Burger was run out. The middle order failed to put on any partnerships of note, the highest of the innings being 25 for the sixth wicket between Ian Opperman and Raymond van Schoor. Nelson Odhiambo accounted for three middle order wickets and his strikes never allowed Namibia to recover.

Kenya lost their openers at 37, but never looked in danger during the chase. Tanmay Mishra top scored with an unbeaten 34 to guide Kenya to an easy win and a good comeback after they were hammered by an innings by the same side in the Intercontinental Cup earlier in the week.
