Kenya take series

NAIROBI, Kenya, October 21-Kenya clinched their Series against United Arab Emirates on Thursday with a 10 run win against the tourists on Thursday in Mombasa.

Former captain  Steve Tikolo once again starring with bat and ball sharing a 63-run stand for the third wicket with Collins Obuya, as Kenya reached 237-8.

Arriving at the crease after David Obuya and Alex Obanda had been removed cheaply, Tikolo launced a counter-attack in partnership with Collins Obuya to take control of the match.

Tikolo eased past fifty in quick time before being caught behind off medium-pacer Amjad Javed for 54.

Obuya also scored at a rapid rate, making 58 from 67 balls before he became left-arm spinner Ahmed Raza’s first victim.

Tanmay Mishra picked up where they left off, racing to a run-a-ball 39, and was ably assisted by Ragheb Aga’s boundary-laden 43 before a couple of late wickets stemmed Kenya’s charge at the death.

The last four wickets fell for just 21 as UAE’s chase unravelled, and with just one game remaining the visitors now have only pride to play for when the sides meet at the same ground on Saturday.
