    Kenya routs Canada in Cricket.

    Ongondo and Odoyo lead Kenya to Canada cricket rout
    Mon Feb 5, 11:07 AM



    NAIROBI, kenya (AFP) - Peter Ongondo has returned one-day career best figures of 5-51 to lead Kenya to a crushing 158-run victory over Canada in the World Cricket League tournament.



    The fast-medium pacer, with sterling support from bowling partner Thomas Odoyo (4-39), helped dismiss Canada - chasing 251 to win - for a paltry 92.


    George Codrington top-scored with 24, while eight other batsmen failed to make double figures for Canada Monday.


    Kenya raced to victory in just 14.5 overs, handing the hosts a pyschological advantage over their first round opponents at the Cricket World Cup in the West Indies in five weeks time.


    Kenya's win set up another mouth-watering final clash against Scotland at the Nairobi Gymkhana club on Wednesday with both teams having already been assured of their places in the World Twenty20 championships in South Africa next September.


    Kenya started their innings on the wrong footing with Maurice Ouma and David Obuya failing to apply the same magic that saw them win the opening match for Kenya against Bermuda at the same venue a week ago.


    Both men fell with just seven runs on the board but the fifth wicket duo of Tanmay Mishra (62) and Collins Obuya (48) stemmed the slide in their 107-run partnership to give the score some respectability.

    So they freeze their buns off, plant said buns, and then spring again from said buns in Spring.

    Interesting, yet creepy.

    Kenya have a few scalps on the world stage.

    I think they even beat the West Indies one time.

    Let's see who wins the next Rugby test between Canada and the USA.

    Figures the Canadians would lose at Cricket.

    The only things Canadians can hit with a bat are helpless Baby Seals. If they don't run.
    I knew the job was dangerous when I took it.

    I'd like to see you try it, pansy. It takes a fine clubbin' arm to put 'em down and keep 'em there.
