In the battle of the minnows, Canada have truly come out on top. Cheema got going immediately, but he was cleaned up by Otieno.
A slight stutter occured in the middle when Gunasekera and Surkari departed cheaply. However, the turning point of the match occurred when Hansra came to the crease. In James Ngoche’s first ball, he mistimed a shot to mid on and Waters spilled a sitter. He made Kenya pay dearly as he and Bagai went past their half centuries.
Their unbeaten 150 run partnership is the highest ever partnership for Canada in World Cups. This partnership was worth 132 and that helped Canada record their second World Cup victory by five wickets. Kenya will be very disappointed with their effort. Stay tuned for the presentation.
