Put in to bat, Kenya lost wickets at regular intervals and had to rely on Tanmay Mishra’s 59 to post a reasonable total. Mishra walked in at No. 5 after the top three had crashed within the first 11 overs, to lead Kenya’s resistance. He scored at a slow rate, putting on a 38-run stand with Collins Obuya, the captain, as Kenya regained control.
However, the partnership was broken when Rob Taylor, a left-arm medium pacer, sent back Obuya and the dismissal resulted in a flurry of wickets. Kenya still had something to cheer about when Mishra combined with Nelson Odhiambo for the seventh-wicket to put on 44 key runs. But Taylor ran through the tail, returning figures of 3 for 39, to restrict Kenya to 183.
Rain then made an appearance during the innings break and never really abated. An attempt at a restart was made, but the day’s play was finally abandoned when the umpires, Gregory Brathwaite and Ian Ramage, opted to bring the reserve day into play.
