England beat Kenya by 7 wickets (with 60 balls remaining) in the final Group C game in the World Cup at Beausejour Stadium, Gros Islet, Saint Lucia.

England will now advance through to the Super 8 stage.

Rain delayed the start of the match by some two hours, and therefore the match was only a 43 over game.


Toss: Kenya won, and elected to bat first.
