After their thrashing in the Intercontinental Cup game that ended on Tuesday, few would have been expecting Kenya to put up much of a fight in their World Cricket League Championship match against Namibia today.
But Kenya bounced back in fine style with a surprisingly convincing six wicket win over the home side at the United Cricket Club ground in Windhoek.
Batting first, Namibia's innings got off to a bad start when the dangerous Louis van der Westhuizen was dismissed in the third over. They soon found themselves 15-3 and they never recovered from there.
Raymond van Schoor was the top scorer for them with just 22 as they were bowled out for 129. Nelson Odhiambo was the pick of the Kenyan bowlers with 3-31.
The target posed little problems for the visitors, and they secured the six wicket win in 30.5 overs, Tanmay Mishra top scoring with an unbeaten 34.
The two teams will meet again on Saturday for the final match of this brief tour.
