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 ( 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'

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.
