Off to Kenya

I’m away for the next three weeks covering the World Cricket League in Nairobi. Keep your eyes peeled on Cricinfo for my reports and interviews. Scott’ll be around to keep the blog fed and watered.

Kenya bulldoze Scotland

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).
