Afridi spins Pakistan to a comprehensive win

Shahid Afridi celebrates
Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi spun a web around Kenya to help register a comprehensive 205 run win on Wednesday in its opening Group A match in Hambantota.

Batting first, Pakistan posted 317 for 7 in its 50 overs. And in its reply, Kenya was shot out for 112 in 33.1 overs.

Pakistan lost early wickets, but Kamran Akmal (55: 5x4) and Younus Khan (50: 67b, 2x4) added 98 runs for the third wicket to revive the innings.

Later Umar Akmal (71: 52b, 8x4, 1x6) and Misbah-ul-Haq (65: 69b, 1x4, 2x6) added 118 runs for the fifth wicket to propel Pakistan to a challenging total. Thomas Odoyo with a spell of 3-41 was the best bowler on view for Kenya.

In its reply, Kenya lost wickets at regular intervals as Afridi's spell of 5-16 destroyed the line-up. Only Collins Obuya (47) offered any resistance.
