World Cup 2007: Day 2 - Kenya vs Canada - Notes

Kenya showed yet again why they are considered by many to be the best non-test playing team in the competition. They had lots of luck last time to reach the semi-finals and would not have any free points to take this time. But they do have the combination to compete well on these Carribbean pitches. The spin trio - Tikolo, Varaiya and Kamande picked up 5 wickets for 78 in 29 overs between them. (Kamande started his international career as a seamer - got reported for chucking and now plies his trade as a spinner. Maybe Shabbir should consider doing this - thay way even his injury problems would go away) And then Ouma, Tikolo and the young Mumbai born Mishra put on a good solid batting performance to complete an easy victory.

This was Canada's best chance to add a victory in the competition, but they just had a very very ordinary day in the field.
