But their run was finally ended in the semis by Sourav Ganguly-led Team India. In a lop-sided encounter, India thrash Kenya by 91 runs, to take a place in the final.
The chief-architect of the win was Sourav Ganguly, who scored a brilliant 111 runs from 114 balls. He was ably supported by Sachin Tendulkar (83).
After being set a difficult target to chase, Kenya could only manage 179 runs. Only one batsman, Steve Tikolo showed some resistance and scored a gritty 56, before falling to Tendulkar. Zaheer Khan was the star with the ball as he returned with figures of 3/14 in the match.
