Kenya suffer warm-up defeat

Kenya’s warm-up for next week’s World Cup Qualifiers continued in South Africa with Jimmy Kamande cracking a 49-ball 62, but they couldn’t reach the testing target of 293 set by Titans B

Titans B 292 for 7 (Wiesie 90*, Odoyo 2-40) beat Kenya 244 for 9 (Kamande 62) by 48 runs

Kenya’s warm-up for next week’s World Cup Qualifiers continued in South Africa with Jimmy Kamande cracking a 49-ball 62, but they couldn’t reach the testing target of 293 set by Titans B.

The hosts’ 292 for 7 was set up by D Wiesie’s unbeaten 90, a rollicking 56-ball innings which contained nine fours and two sixes. In addition there were fifties from M Sekota and P Matan.

Morris Ouma (47) got Kenya’s reply off to a good start, but with wickets falling at regular intervals at the other end, not even Kamande’s best efforts could loft Kenya up to their target and they fell 48 runs short.

    How long will Steve Tikolo and Thomas Odoyo will take care of Kenyan side? There is no young brigade in Kenya, who is interested in the game. The way developments are happenning in Kenya, it is very much possible that the 2003-WC semi-finalists might not even get a berth for 2015-WC.
