A disappointing loss to Bermuda in the T20.friendly today.
Fielding first our opponents mustered 194 what imo on flat was a 50/50.score.
Lebron James excelled with 5 scalps (5-38).. :clap

Chasing our elite.batsman Kosgey set the tone going first ball :oops:
A good recovery by Ndegwa(18), Kanye(51) and Kibet(38), but after that only wk Kabando(29) showed the right spirit.
We fell 26 runs short.

A very meagre display, but enough time to improve for the june.tour :whistle

Our 2nd T20.friendly also went the other way, but a much better performance from the lads than last week.
Sent in by The Netherlands we had a bit of a shaky start losing early wickets but Ndegwa (39) held his own and had a good partnership with Kibet (22) who in turn found a good partner in Arao Murgor (25*)..
With some fierce blows from Lukaku (21 from 17 balls..) we finished 135v6 :)

Chasing James struck first ball and when Lukoye and Thiongo joined the party we had them at 68v4 halfway....
We couldn`t get rid of Fangman though and with 1 ball left they passed our total for the loss of 7 wickets.. :(

Third time lucky/succes :thumbsup
Playing the WI we were sent in and reached a total of 230v5 with Kosgey(68) and Arap Murgor(81*) as main contributors.

Defending that total we kept them to 209v4 with Mate, Ngwale, Suleiman and Cheruiyot all taking 1 wicket.
Next week the ODI.tour !

Wednesday we had another practicematch (T20) working up to the tour first week of june.
This time we played Scotland and our 176v5 with Kosgey (88*) and Kibet (56) being our main contributors proved to much for the scots.

They finished at 156v8 with Lebron James (5-28) being the main scalphunter :clap

We will have a few more friendlies before the tour starts june 1 ....

A disappointing loss in our friendly T20 vs Pakistan :think
Batting first we didn`t have a bad start with Kosgey (19) and Matthea (24), but after them only Lukaku (16) made a score of any significance.
Our total of 90 was 30-40 less than expected/needed to make it a match.

Defending that low total Samoei (3-28) had 2 quick wickets and as Suleiman (2-15) also chipped in we had a bit of a chance with their score at 34v4.
But they easily passed the 90 in over 15 :thumbsdown .

Before the tourweek we`ll have 2 more practicematches..vs West Indies and Canada.
