Kenya’s preparations in South Africa for the ICC World Cup Qualifiers got off to a good start as they beat Easterns by 76 runs in their opening match at Benoni.
They need significant contributions from the old guard to help them post 193, Steve Tikolo leading the way with 63 and Kennedy Otieno making 46. Easterns were always off the pace, Peter Ongondo (4 for 26) reducing them to 52 for 5 before Jimmy Kamande (3 for 15) polished off the tail.

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.
