Tom Sears has confirmed that he has resigned as Cricket Kenya CEO, effective end-June, to join the Irish rugby club Connacht. A replacement CEO will be discussed at Cricket Kenya's board meeting this weekend.
Sears, who was appointed CEO in May 2010, oversaw the setting up of a franchise-based tournament, which also featured two teams from Uganda. The national team hasn't fared too well, though, failing to qualify for the World Twenty20 both in 2010 and in this year, and experiencing a miserable 2011 one-day World Cup.
"We haven't achieved everything we set out to do but we have provided more facilities and put structures in place," Sears told ESPNcricinfo. "We have worked very hard to introduce the game at the grassroots level because we were trying to turn around years of decline at that level.
"People have to have patience to see that pay off. If the structures we have put in place are nurtured, results will improve in the next two to three years."
