Injured David Obuya to miss WCL

Liam Brickhill

Cricket Kenya has announced the squad which will travel to the Netherlands for the World Cricket League Division 1 tournament which begins on July 1. Kenya begin with a game against Ireland, the current title holders, on the opening day of the competition, which runs until July 10.

With the 2011 World Cup less than nine months away, the competition will allow the teams to continue their planning for the event, and with this - and Cricket Kenya’s long term objectives for the team’s development - in mind several junior players have been included in the touring party, which will also stop off in the United Kingdom to play in a series of warm-up games arranged by the group Friends of Kenya.

David Obuya is missing from the squad due to his injury struggles, while Seren Waters is unavailable due to university commitments.

Kenya squad: Morris Ouma, James Kamande, Collins Obuya, Alex Obanda, Elijah Otieno, Hiren Varaiya, Rakep Patel, Alfred Luseno, Nehemiah Odhiambo, Thomas Odoyo, James Otieno, Shem Obado, Nelson Odhiambo, Francis Otieno, Dominic Saleh

I wish the Kenyan side the best as this is the youngest and motivated side they will be travelling with.

here's hoping the ommission of Steve Tikolo acts as a motivation for the youngsters to show what they are really made of

Great to see 'Franco' (Francis Otieno Ndege) back in harness. We in Uganda are very pleased as he is still very popular here.. Let him fly like the proverbial 'bird'!

i would like to see kenya,ireland and namibia play in test matches im sure the kenyans will play some razzle dazzle cricket.

a critizism i have of the icc is that wont develop the game,cricket authorities including cricinfo should redirect funding to cricket facilities like nets in schools and stadiums to host international matches and junior development touuriments.unlike ireland,scotland,netherlands,uae,usa and canada kenya has homegrown player base which is not a distorted veiw of the standard of cricket played domestically
