Hambantota - Shahid Afridi took his maiden five-wicket World Cup haul as Pakistan crushed sloppy Kenya by 205 runs in a one-sided Group A match played on Wednesday.
In reply to Pakistan's total of 317-7, Kenya were bundled out for 112 in 33.1 overs.
The Kenyan batsmen had no answer to captain Afridi's tantalising leg-spinners as he ended up with figures of five for 16 off eight overs.
Pakistan, with a little help from a massive extras total, got their batting into top gear to reach a big score.
Akmal brothers Kamran and Umar, Younus Khan and Misbah-ul-Haq all made contrasting half-centuries after Pakistan had got off to an unsteady beginning, stuttering to 12-2.
Thomas Odoyo was the most successful bowler for the Africans with figures of three for 41 but he was also responsible for sending down 20 of the 37 wides bowled by Kenya out of a huge total of 46 extras.
