Nairobi:Pakistan 'A' captain Misbah-ul-Haq led from the start to steer his team to a thrilling three-wicket win over Kenya in the fifth One-day match of the Nairobi triangular series in Nairobi.

The right-hander, who scored an unbeaten 64, shared a timely 113-run stand for the seventh wicket with Riaz Afridi that helped turn the game in their favour after an early slump on Sunday.

At one time Kenya, who had made 215 after being sent in, looked to be heading for a comfortable victory when the fast-medium pacer Thomas Odoyo took three quick wickets.

But with the introduction of Man of the Match Afridi, who hit a quickfire 66 off 62 balls, Pakistan 'A' recovered to register their first victory in the tournament.
