Kenya-Namibia tie rescheduled

The postponed Intercontinental Cup match between Namibia and Kenya at Windhoek has been rescheduled for June 3-5.

The game should have been played in February but it was postponed because of the internal battles within Kenyan cricket at the time. Those have largely been resolved, and it was felt that the tie could now safely be played.

Several of Kenya's players left the country straight after last week's victory over Uganda. Steve Tikolo is playing for Haverigg in Cumbria, Thomas Odoyo is at Reads in Lancashire, Hitesh Modi and Brijal Patel are also playing club cricket in England.

"There is no problem in the players going abroad," Sammy Obingo, the interim general manager, said. "Once selected in the team to face Namibia, we will call them back."
