Kenya to appoint new coach by end of July

Cricket Kenya hope to be able to confirm the appointment of a new national coach by the end of July.

A board spokesman confirmed media reports that a five-man shortlist had been drawn up, but said not all of those had been interviewed and the process was ongoing.

Dear Ramakant and Vikram thankyou, the captains selection was done through an interview of the national players, i and you do not know what they must haved talked about, let Thomas start getting runs and wicket as pressure is now off as a vice captain, in regard to coach i would say Francis (FRANCO) who is now coaching Uganda should be approched. He has done well with the Uganda National teams for all catagories.

I completely agree with Ramakanth. Tikolo should be made the coach-player and Odoyo should be given captaincy change. Thomas would be a better choice than Maurice Ouma.

Give the job to Steve Tikolo, and Thomas should be appointed captain. What are they all thinking down at Cricket Kenya...

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.
