David Waters, one of the most respected administrators in the country, has resigned as the head of Kenya’s selectors as well relinquishing his place in the Cricket Kenya executive.

Waters stepped down as secretary of the fractious Nairobi Provincial Cricket Association in November after growing weary of the infighting within the executive and also the way in which his name was being used to give credibility to erroneous statements.

Samir Inamdar, CK’s chairman, praised Water for more than 23 years of service. “I am well aware of your own personal contribution and commitment to developing the game in Nairobi which is clearly visible in the sizeable number of youngsters now playing representative cricket for Kenya,” he said.
