Kenya 266-9 (Obanda 65, D Obuya 56) v Zimbabwe
Third One-Day International, Harare

Half-centuries from Alex Obanda, David Obuya, and Collins Obuya propelled Kenya to a score of 266 for nine in the third One-Day International against Zimbabwe in Harare.

Obanda, who made 65, and David Obuya, who made 56, put on 119 for the first wicket after Kenya won the toss and chose to bat first, but Zimbabwe hit back with Kyle Jarvis, Ray Price and Hamilton Masakadza picking up two wickets and the run outs of Maurice Ouma (20) and Jimmy Kamande (5) didn't help Kenya's cause.

However, Collins Obuya made 52 in 63 balls with three fours and two sixes to haul Kenya up to a competitive score, aided by 28 in 22 balls from Thomas Odoyo.

Zimbabwe lead the series 2-0 after 91 and 86-run victories in the opening two games in the five-match series.
