News: Kenya thrash Uganda….

First Limited overs match  
Kenya 214-9 Uganda 71
Kenya won by 143 runs

2nd Limited overs match

Uganda 135 Kenya 138-4
Kenya won by six wickets

3rd Limited overs match
Kenya 236-6 Uganda 96
Kenya won by 140 runs

Perhaps quite depressing, one would have thought that Uganda can at least compete with Kenya. but as I mentioned in a comment a while earlier, the Ugandan team that beat kenya A was different, with at least 4-5 players missing. That said, being dismissed for 71 at home is not a good omen. I am now looking forward to the Africa Div I even more given that it would allow us to see comparative standards of Uganda and Tanzania, and it may be a different story with the full Ugandan team, esp Kamyuka.

    According to The Standard report, Ouma and Mishra top scored for Kenya in the last match, both scored 43. Hamza Saleh top scored for Uganda with 55 runs. Good to see younger guys are doing better for both sides.

    Kenya have completed a 3-0 whitewash……

    THIRD MATCH
    Kenya 236-6 Uganda 96
    Kenya won by 140 runs

    Jimmy Kamande made 62 off 29 balls. That makes me lose a lot of respect for the Ugandan bowling. I have seen Jimmy Kamande bat, and can testify that perhaps Jiminy Cricket is better batsman than him……..

    I know Uganda have supposedly made strides in youth cricket, but was there any reason to hope they would push Kenya?

    Well, their full team, with the 5 missing players, was able to beat Kenya A, so one was expecting that at least they would be competitive against the full team…….. they probably will be, if Kamyuka etc are there….. of the 5 missing were some decent bowlers who would not have let the likes of Kamande dominate….

    yeah, yeah!!! Nasir which should make u lose respect for the canadian bowlers after Kamande scored 68 in the easy win in Canada.Give the man some respect, hes more of a medium pace spinner.wait a minute!!! and who the hell is kamyuka? Kamande could dominate him anytime.Jiminy Cricket!!! Common man!!! u could do better than this with ur weak comments.

    Not directly related to this ODI series, but something about Kenyan cricket can be found here: http://www.friendsofkenyacricket.org.uk/know.html

    It’s interesting that Kenya have infact got a good dose of quality cricket in the last 4-5 years, not only in the shorter format but also in the longer 4-day version against quality teams…Now this makes me wonder all the more why Kenyan cricket has gone backwards?…Am I missing something here?
