Dominant Kenya sees of UAE with ease

29 June 2015, 12:46

Nairobi - The Ngoche twins led an impressive 65 run win for Kenya over the United Arab Emirates in the ICC World Cricket League Championships at the Rose Bowl in Southampton.

UAE captain Mohammad Tauqir won the toss and inserted the Kenyans in to bat. The innings did not start well for the African side who began slowly and were three wickets down within the first 15 overs.

However, half-centuries from Irfan Karim, Rakep Patel and Shem Ngoche recovered the innings for Kenya, as they set the UAE an imposing target of 271 for victory.

Nelson Odhiambo and Karim steadied the innings with a 70-run partnership for the fourth wicket before Patel and Ngoche added an unbeaten 121 runs to set the daunting total.

The UAE also had trouble getting going at the start of their innings but, unlike their African counterparts, were ineffective in their attempts to fight their way back into the game.

Shem's brother James Ngoche was destroyer in chief for Kenya, ending the match with figures of 5 for 26 in just over eight overs bowled, while Shem himself chipped in with 2 for 37 in his 10 overs.

UAE skipper Tauqir showed some fight at the end of the innings with a brave 54 off 42 balls, including five sixes, but it wasn't enough to claw the Middle East side back into the game.

The result was sweet revenge for the Kenyans who lost to the same opponents in this competition just two days earlier.
