Captain Tikolo steers Kenya home

March 15, 2007
Impressive slow bowling and a captain's innings from Steve Tikolo helped Kenya to a seven-wicket win over Canada in the opening World Cup Group C match on Wednesday.

The Africans reached their target in 43.2 overs having restricted fellow tournament outsiders Canada to 199 all out.

Tikolo, 35 and playing in his fourth World Cup, struck a patient 72 not out including seven fours and a six to guide his side home with Maurice Ouma chipping in with 58.

Tikolo earlier bagged two for 34 with his slow-medium pace to limit Canada.
