Suji effort in vain
World Cup warm-up, East London: Border 194-8 (48 overs) v Kenya - match abandoned due to rain

Kenya were denied the possibility of a morale-boosting victory by rain after inspired bowling by Martin Suji at Buffalo Park.

Suji took four for 11 in a single 10-over spell with the new ball as the home side were reduced to 47 for five.

Justin Kreusch batted sensibly for 69, sharing a stand of 66 with Craig Sugden (31), as Border achieved a respectable total but bad weather closed in during the interval and no further play was possible.

Suji ripped out Burton de Wett, Mark Bruyns, Steven Pope and Tyron Henderson for single figure scores.

It put the onus on home skipper Piet Strydom, the only Border player with international experience, to try and rebuild the innings.

He played two Tests and 10 one-day matches for South Africa three years ago, but only managed a single before being stumped off medium pacer Joseph Angara.

Kreusch and Sugden prevented a total collapse, collecting 11 fours between them before both fell to Suji's younger brother Tony.

The final wicket was taken by Thomas Odoyo, who had Laden Gamiet lbw for 22.

There were useful runs at the end of the innings as Abongile Sodumo made 27 not out at a run a ball as he and Liam Graham (15) put on 49 for the ninth wicket in the final seven overs.
