South Africa beat Kenya

8:21 am on 3 November 2008

Jacques Kallis steered South Africa to a comfortable seven-wicket win over Kenya in the second and final one-day cricket international in Kimberley.

Kallis hit an unbeaten 92 as South Africa overhauled Kenya's total of 222 for nine with 14.3 overs to spare.

That Kenya were able to post a respectable total was mainly due to teenage opening batsman Seren Waters, who hit a solid half-century.

18-year-old Waters scored 74 as Kenya made first use of a good batting pitch.

Kallis then took over and finished with 92 off 94 balls, sealing the match with a six off a free-hit no-ball by Elijah Otieno.

It was the second successive half-century by Kallis, who made 71 when South Africa won the first match by 159 runs in Bloemfontein Friday.
