Mishra hit a composed 73-ball 51 for his fourth half-century in one-day internationals and Odoyo also chipped in with 51 to lift Kenya, who were tottering at 57/5 at one stage.
Mishra said the wicket was tough to bat on, adding Kenya’s score is “very much defendable on this wicket. It keeps low. There’s some turn. If we can get a couple of early wickets we’re in the game.” Neither team have a realistic chance of qualifying for the quarter-finals but both want to notch their first win of the tournament.
Osinde struck early for Canada, removing opener Morris Ouma off the second ball of the innings and his partner Seren Waters in the fifth over.

But he perished as he tried to play one shot too many and was bowled. Veteran Steve Tikolo (12) was adjudged leg before wicket although a review of the decision suggested a possible inside edge.
Kenyan skipper Jimmy Kamande sought to rebuild the innings with Mishra, putting on 52 runs for the sixth wicket but portly leg-spinner Balaji Rao had him caught behind the stumps for 22.
Mishra’s dogged fightback came to an end when he holed out tamely to Zubin Surkari off part-timer John Davison in the 43rd over.The time kenya‘s team is not good because kenya have not win a single match still. know Kenya have a chance to winning.
