It was, though, to prove beyond Kenya's reach on the day. Jermaine Lawson, playing his first game of this World Cup, hit the 150 km/h mark from early on in his spell to put the Kenyan batsmen on the backfoot. It was, however, not Lawson who inflicted the major damage. Making good use of the pressure Lawson created, Vasbert Drakes cashed in. Bowling a steady line and length, and varying his pace well, Drakes scalped his second five-wicket haul of the tournament, returning figures of 5/33. It was a performance that propelled West Indies to a 142-run win and earned Drakes the Man of the Match award. Knowing Drakes, though, it would have done little to assuage his sorrow at his team's early demise in the World Cup.
