Swamibapa secure Super League title
Swamibapa A have won the NPCA Super League title, ending five years of domination by Kanbis A.
Needing only maximum points from their final game, Swamibapa A easily beat Stray Lions A, bowling them out for 108 after setting a target of 216 to win. Kanbis A finished second after a well-fought last-day win over SCLYL.
The problems facing Kenyan cricket were summed up by the newspaper coverage of the final round of games. While Sofapaka secured Kenyan football’s Premier League title in front of 10,000 spectators, and gained a full page of coverage in the Sunday Nation, Swamibapa’s achievement didn’t even warrant a mention.
