Kenya Start Well Against Canada

Play is underway in Toronto between Kenya and Canada in the Intercontinental cup and the good news is it looks like Kenya have finished the morning on top. At lunch we have them 5/89, so someone is obviously bowling well. Cricket Europe and the Canadian Cricket website seem to be the only places keeping up to date.
Going on the fact that Canada had said pre match that they would like to bat first, I'm assuming they won the toss. No idea who has taken the wickets, but the two top scorers so far are Pubudu Dassanayaka - 25 not out and Ashish Bagai - 21.
This is a very positive start from Kenya, and if things continue to go this way, we could potentially have them all out for less than 150. So far so good, but lets hope we can keep up the momentum in the after lunch session.

Nick,

It's really sad to hear that Kenya, despite having a great opening session, are now in dire straits against an opposition like Canada in an Intercontinental Cup match..

Scores at the end of day 1: Canada 235 all out (Qaiser Ali - 91 not out, Pubudu Dassanayaka - 26), Kenya 14/4 (Henry Osinde and Umar Bhatti - 2 wickets each)

I hope Kenya can somehow pull themselves out of this deep hole they've dug for themselves with a strong batting display tomorrow..All the best to them..
