Kenya A Trounce Tanzania

The good news is that Kenya A have turned around their form from yesterday to register a comprehensive win over Tanzania in their second match of the Atul Shah Memorial Tournament. Batting first, Tanzania were bundled out for 114 in just 24.2 overs. I am not sure yet who did the damage, as the full scorecard is not yet available.
In reply, Kenya A have coasted to victory with 8 wickets remaining. Brijal Patel made 45 of the runs to finish unbeaten alongside Tanmay Mishra who made 6. When I checked earlier, it looked like Timothy Muange was having a decent innings, so I'd say that he would have made a fair few of the remaining runs. A good result for Kenya A, though surprising that Mishra was picked to play against the weaker team rather than the stronger one. His presence may have made all the difference yesterday.
If CCA end up losing to Uganda today, this will set up a fascinating clash on Saturday to see whether the Coast team or Nairobi team play Uganda in the finals.
Full scorecard to be posted as soon as it is available.
