Canada 273 for 6 (Nitish 89, Ngoche 2-28) v Kenya
Scorecard
Nitish Kumar made a controlled 89 as Canada built a solid total on the first day of the bottom-of-the-table encounter with Kenya.
He batted for most of the day and compiled a 143-ball fifty, flicking a ball to fine-leg to bring up the milestone. His 205-ball stay included eight fours and was the cornerstone of the innings, which was moving nicely at 166 for 2 after Canada had been sent in to bat.
But Shem Ngoche took two wickets in consecutive overs to check the progress. The first, Raza-ur-Rehman who made a 103-ball 51; the second, a beauty to dismiss captain Jimmy Hansra, who recorded a fifth-ball duck.
Canada pressed on with Nitish and Damodar Daesrath sharing 74 for the fifth-wicket, before Kenya responded with the second new ball. Daesrath was caught at second slip and then, with six overs remaining in the day, Nitish finally departed, caught behind off Nelson Odhiambo.
