Sameer Four Nations Cup, fifth qualifying match


At Nairobi Gymkhana, Nairobi, October 3. South Africa won by 202 runs. Toss: South Africa. International debut: H. H. Gibbs.

Kenya were completely outclassed, surviving only half their 50 overs. They collapsed before the hostility and the well-disguised slower ball of Donald, who finished with a career-best six for 23 and became the first South African to take 100 wickets in limited-overs internationals. None of the Kenyans reached 30; in contrast, most of South Africa's top order weighed in, with Cronje, coming good after a poor run, and Rhodes adding 101 - almost as many as Kenya managed in total - for the fifth wicket. They marched imperiously to 305, with slow left-armer Asif Karim the only Kenyan bowler to go for less than five an over.

Man of the Match: A. A. Donald.
