Kenya offered two ODIs by South Africa

Less than 48 hours after Cricinfo revealed that Kenya were having problems arranging ODIs against South Africa, the South African board has offered two dates later this year.

Although the exact details have yet to be agreed, the matches will take place on October 30 and November 2.

"We look at South Africa to support us," Samir Inamdar, Cricket Kenya's chairman, said yesterday. "They made the commitment at the ICC board meeting two years ago but it seems that commitment is not there now and that worries us."

Cricket Kenya will look to add other matches against provincial sides to the tour as part of their preparations for the ICC World Cup Qualifiers in 2009.

Executive editor Martin Williamson joined the Wisden website in its planning stages in 2001 after failing to make his millions in the internet boom when managing editor of Sportal. Before that he was in charge of Sky Sports Online and helped launch and run Sky News Online. With a preference for all things old (except his wife and children), he has recently confounded colleagues by displaying an uncharacteristic fondness for Twenty20 cricket. His enthusiasm for the game is sadly not matched by his ability, but he remains convinced that he might be a late developer and perseveres in the hope of an England call-up with his middle-order batting and non-spinning offbreaks. He is now managing editor of ESPN EMEA Digital Group as well as his Cricinfo responsibilities.
