    So it appears Kenya are off the pace again finishing 3rd of 3 in this tournament. Very worrying signs.

    I guess we'll find out this week if Kenya have appropriate strength at Under 13 level. They seem to have put together a good selection process, so hopefully it produces the goods for them.

    Does Kenya have an appropriate Under-13 strength? The standard of their game is going downw at a very fast pace. The semi-finalists of 2003 World Cup couldn't manage to get a Berth in 2009 T20 World Cup.

    I trust Cricket Without Boundaries (www.cricketwithoutboundaries.com) will be heavily involved in this. If so, it should be a great competition; the organisation does sterling work in Africa. Nothing ventured, nothing gained! 'Topspinner'
