It was the Standard Bank Triangular tournament, and India were expected to win against their not-so fancied opponents. Kenya had a bat first and put a decent 246 runs on the board. There were a few notable batting performances by the team as Kennedy Otieno, Ravindu Shah and Thomas Odoya scored their fifties. In a bowling department, that boasted of players like Venkatesh Prasad, Anil Kumble and Harabhajan Singh, India were unable to restrict their opponents below 200.
In the second innings, the Indians proved to be duds as none of the batsmen got any start. India with the ever-strong batting line-up failed miserably and fell short of the target by an astounding 70 runs. This was India's second defeat against the African nation.
