Kenya do the double over Uganda

NAIROBI, Kenya, February 2- Nehemiah Odhiambo took four wickets as Kenya’s sublime Twenty20 form continued on Tuesday with a 14 run victory against Uganda.
A half century from Collins Obuya and a return of 43 from Alex Obanda helped set Uganda a target of 187 runs to win the match but Odhiambo’s bowling and two further wickets from Tony Suji put paid to those chances.

Roger Mukasa was Uganda’s top scorer with 66 from 41 balls and was the mainstay for most of his side’s innings before Odhiambo got rid of him in the 14th over.

David Obuya and Obanda combined for an opening partnership of 41 before it was disbanded by Davis Arinaitwe but Kenya were cruising at 41-1 in the fourth over.

Obanda and Maurice Ouma (39) were the next Kenyan’s to fall but their contribution at the crease was crucial to the host’s final score.

Collins (79) who faced 45 balls not only produced the highest score of the day but the stats of the day with a strike rate of 175 that included three 4s and seven 6s.

It was also a good day for Jimmy Kamande who produced two run outs that added more pressure on the hosts and ultimately without a win in the competition.

Eldine Baptiste’s side face Scotland in their last match on Sunday with a win securing them the series.
