Canada beat Kenya in Associates clash

Delhi, India – Canada overcame some early jitters with the bat to eventually win the battle of the Associates by beating Kenya by five wickets and register their first win in the ICC World Cup 2011 on Monday at the Feroz Shah Kotla.

Right-hander Jimmy Hansra (70) and captain Ashish Bagai (64 not out) stitched together a 132-run partnership for the fourth wicket that sealed the Group A match for the Canadians.

Roach focusing on wickets not speed

Dhaka, Bangladesh – West Indies fast bowler Kemar Roach spoke to the local and international media on Wednesday at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium and the question on everyone lips was how could a small man bowl so fast.

Roach, who stands just five-feet-eight-inches and weighs less than 180 lbs is not what many term “the ideal fast bowler”. He ambles up to the wicket, but has the ability to generate pace with a quick arm-action. He generates pace of over 150 mph.
