NEW DELHI: Canada overcame some early jitters with the bat to eventually win the battle of the associates by beating Kenya by five wickets and register their first win in the World Cup on Monday at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium.
Right-handed batsman Jimmy Hansra , who scored 70 runs and captain Ashish Bagai who was not out after scoring 64 runs, stitched together a 132-run partnership for the fourth wicket that sealed the Group A match for the Canadians.
The duo consolidated hard after Canada were reduced to 48 for three and batted intelligently thereafter to wrest the control back in their hands, helped in part by a few dropped catches.
Paceman Henry Osinde took four wickets as Canada shot out the Africans for a paltry 198 runs after they opted to bat first on winning the toss.
