Canada beat Kenya by 5 wickets

Canada are finally off the mark with their first win in the tournament. They would be happy with the victory and their performance. They next meet New Zealand in their next match. Kenya on the other side, would be disappointed with their overall performance. They would want to do well against the Australian team when they meet them in their next encounter. That's all from us for today. Join us tomorrow for the game between New Zealand and Pakistan at 0900 GMT (1430 IST).
Henry Osinde has been declared the Man of the Match. He says that there was some swing for him today. He was looking to bowl wicket to wicket but after seeing the ball swing, he decided to pitch it up. He also says that the way second new ball reversed was surprising..

Canadian skipper Ashish Bagai says that the performance was good. Restricting Kenya to that total and chasing it was good. There was no pressure of the run rate. Jimmy Hansra got the odd boundaries and took away the pressure off him which made it a bit easy to chase..
Kenyan captain Jimmy Kamande says that they started off very badly and wanted more than 200 but later on thought that their total was enough to defend. Says that the bowling was not upto the mark to defend the total..
Canada have beaten Kenya by 5 wickets. Their batting was good and chased the total comfortably. Jimmy Hansra was the star batsman for them hitting a well made 70 and their captain Ashish Bagai stayed 64 not out till the end to steer his side to victory. Kenya on the other side tried their level best to get wickets but they couldn't apply pressure on the Canadian team. The best bowler for Kenya was Nehemiah Odhiambo with 2/45 in his 10 overs..
