New Delhi - Paceman Henry Osinde took four wickets as Canada shot out Kenya for a paltry 198 runs in their Cricket World Cup Group A match at the Feroz Shah Kotla on Monday.

The burly fast bowler got the ball to move a bit at the start to take three quick wickets in his opening spell and returned to add one more to his tally off his last over.

Medium pacers Harvir Baidwan and Rizwan Cheema also chipped in with two wickets apiece.

Kenya had been bundled out for scores of 69, 112 and 142 -- amassing just 323 runs in their last three outings before Monday.

The African nation got off to a sorry start after captain Jimmy Kamande won the toss and decided to bat first and were tottering at 57 for five at one stage.

But a patient 52-run partnership between Tanmay Mishra (51) and captain Kamande for the sixth wicket weathered the storm and ensured respectability for the African nation.

Mishra also added 57 runs with Thomas Odoyo for the seventh wicket before he fell while trying to up the tempo.

Odoyo (51) looked the most fluent Kenyan batsman on the pitch and with five boundaries and one six managed to take Kenya close to the 200-run mark.
