I’ve been closely following Kenyan cricket in the past few months, as I’m off to Nairobi in a couple of weeks to cover the World Cricket League. Non-Test cricket has always interested me, but I freely admit that only until quite recently did I realise it had such a following. Kenya’s game looks and sounds in very good order at the moment, too.
I didn’t watch today’s one-dayer between Kenya and Scotland – the first in the ICC Tri-Series at Mombasa – but followed it on the scorecard from our scorer at the ground, and from our man-on-the-spot, David Waters, who kindly gave us some colour. Scotland took a right pasting and there was a fifty from Ravi Shah, making his comeback, who is one of the very classiest (so I’m told) non-Test batsmen out there. It’ll be terrific seeing him and others in Nairobi, and also watching the standard of cricket (and the level of interest).
