De Leede Sets The Pace For Holland

A cracking unbeaten Century from Dutch batsman Tim De Leede has Holland in a strong position going into the last 6 overs of the match against Kenya 'A'. Ably supported by De Grooth who was run out on 81, De Leede is showing the form that was lacking for Holland during their tour of South Africa. Kenya have also run out Reekers for two, but with wickets in hand, the Dutch could go on to pose a sizeable target from their fifty overs. Affter 44, they are on 4-220. Ashish Karia has bowled economically for Kenya only conceding 16 runs off his 7 overs, and Odhiambo has also kept it tight. Kenya's most expensive bowler so far is Rehman, who has had 23 runs taken off only 3 overs. Gymkhana is a good batting track, and Holland will be looking for a score of at least 260 odd to feel safe. Kenya's youngsters need to stick to their task in these last overs, and keep the total to something attainable.
