NEW DELHI, March 7 (PTI): Canada won only their second World Cup match in four tournaments, a low-profile, low-scoring scrap against Kenya, to walk away with bragging rights at Feroz Shah Kotla.
Jimmy Hansra and Ashish Bagai put on 132 - Canada�s fifth biggest one-day partnership - to steer the chase on a slow subcontinent surface, the fourth successive match in which a tough track was served up in a World Cup widely expected to be a runfest. Quick bowler Henry Osinde was Canada�s hero in the afternoon, as he ripped through the top order to leave Kenya gasping at 57 for 5 after 15 overs. Kenya, though, just about achieved their captain Jimmy Kamande�s goal of playing out 50 overs through gutsy half-centuries from Tanmay Mishra and Thomas Odoyo which was the bedrock of their best batting performance of the tournament.
Canada bowled out Kenya for a modest 198. For Kenya, young Tanmay (51) and veteran Thomas Odoyo (51) struck half centuries. Osinde had career-best figures of four for 26 to show for his efforts.
