New Zealand defeated Kenya by nine wickets in Group C of the 2007 Twenty20 World Championship at Kingsmead, Durban, South Africa.

Kenya suffered a disastrous start to their innings, when Maurice Ouma was bowled by Shane Bond and Tanmay Mishra was caught by Jacob Oram in the first over without scoring. In the second over David Obuya hit wicket and captain Steve Tikolo fell lbw to Mark Gillespie to leave Kenya on 1-4. Collins Obuya scored 18 runs before being stumped, and Thomas Odoyo also scored 18. Kenya slumped to 73 all out, which is the lowest score in a Twenty20 international. Mark Gillespie was the best performing bowler for the Black Caps, taking 4-7.

New Zealand had no trouble reaching the target, and Lou Vincent was the only batsman to fall when he was caught by David Obuya for 27 runs. Brendon McCullum (16 not out) and Peter Fulton (21 not out) took New Zealand to victory in the eighth over.

Toss: New Zealand won and chose to field first.
