Besides John Davison, Canada are very weak. Kenya should win all matches.

Day 1:

Canada won the toss and elected to bat. At lunch, Canada was at 89/5. After lunch, Qaiser Ali led Canada's batting to a total of 235 from 73.3 overs. Kenya went into bat for the last 8 overs of the day, and quickly lost 4 wickets for only 14 runs. Henry Osinde and Umar Bhatti took two wickets each.

Day 1 Score: Canada 235(Qaiser Ali - 91 not out, Pubudu Dassanayaka - 26), Kenya 14-4.

CI: Battling Mishra restores parity (http://www.cricinfo.com/icc-cont/content/story/255164.html)

A battling 83 from 19-year-old Tanmay Mishra helped Kenya claw their way back into the reckoning on the second day of their Intercontinental Cup tie against Canada at Maple Leaf Cricket Club after they had seemed out on their feet. By the close, Canada led by 56 runs with nine second-innings wickets in hand.

Canada Set Imposing Target

A century by Geoff Barnett (136) took Canada to 4/259 before Kenya were able to strike back and pin their hosts down to 286 all out. Canada also had a good innings from Ashish Bagai, who scored 57.

Kenya's reply has not started well, losing 2 quick wickets with only 21 of the 291 required on the board. Captain Steve Tikolo has steadied the ship and added a further 24 runs with Tony Suji. Tikolo is currently on 22, while Suji is on 13. Kenya need a further 246 to win with 8 wickets in hand. Tomorrow's weather at the ground is expected to be warm and sunny, so it should be fine for batting provided the pitch holds up.

Interestingly, I think Canada played very well. Kenya is an aging team clearly in the decline. Blooming cricket players in BD who don't feel that they will make the cut for the national team should consider moving to this country.

looks like someone else can't score 250 against real weak opposition.
