Twenty20 starts with huge win for Chiefs

Kenya's elite Twenty20 competition got off to a low-key start as Western Chiefs crushed Southern Stars by nine wickets in a woefully one-sided game at Nairobi Gymkhana

Kenya's elite Twenty20 competition got off to a low-key start as Western Chiefs crushed Southern Stars by nine wickets in a woefully one-sided game at Nairobi Gymkhana. Stuck in to bat, Southern Stars limped to 57 all out in 15.4 overs, never recovering from crumbling to 3 for 3 inside nine balls. Western Chiefs were barely troubled and an unbeaten 31 from Jadavji Jesani helped them home with almost nine overs in hand.

    This is a positive thing for Kenya cricket. May be now we will have a pool of specialised players for the various versions of the game. In the past, we have heavily relied on the same players for the 20/20, one dayers and first class matches. One disappointment though. CK should have found someone else to handle one of the sides instead of picking on the acting national coach to do so!Any way kudos to CK and the sponsors:Sahara computers. The local media houses should try to increase the coverage of this league. We need more fans on the pitches for sure.
