Kenya has qualified for the U-19 cricket world cup after beating Uganda on Saturday.
The Kenyan bowling attack tore through Uganda dismissing them for a paltry 60 in 16.1 overs to set up the game for their batters.
With qualification coming down to net run rate, the Kenyans needed to chase the total down in 9 overs.
Needing 6.78 runs per over to win, the chase got off to a slow start as the hosts showed some sign of nerves. Thomas Ochieng took his team home in 8.3 overs to book their place in next year’s showpiece in New Zealand.
