Scorecard

Ryan ten Doeschate again showed why he is so important to Netherlands as his unbeaten 129, his 15th first-class century, led them out of a tough situation on the opening day against Kenya. The visitors stumbled to 75 for 4, but ten Doeschate turned the innings around alongside useful contributions from captain Peter Borren and wicketkeeper Atse Buurman.

Play didn't start until after lunch due to overnight rain and Kenya's seamers made use of some early movement to trouble Netherlands' top order. Elijah Otieno removed Eric Szwarczynski with his second ball and Bas Zuiderent was caught behind for 3 off Nehemiah Odhiambo. Alexei Kervezee played positively for his 42 but when he and Nick Statham fell in quick succession Kenya were in control.

However, ten Doeschate changed the complexion of the day as he added 113 for the fifth wicket with Borren (44). ten Doeschate found the boundary regularly and also cleared the ropes four times. Kenya struck two quick blows to leave Netherlands on 193 for 6, but ten Doeschate found valuable support from Buurman.

The pair added an unbroken 83 for the seventh wicket to guide Netherlands through o the close as ten Doeschate reached his hundred from 141 balls with a tight contest shaping up between two teams currently in mid-table and needing a victory to make a push for the top.
