Cheers buddy.

Shame about the kids tour mate, no doubt they'll bounce back though.

Celebrations at Kenya HQ continued longer than expected following the surprise T20 w/c qualification of the senior team for the first time in approximately 127 years! Whilst the circumstances are still somewhat hazy it would appear we made it through based on the number of vowels in the surname of the player who batted at No. 7 in game 3 (or some such equally arbitrary formula); nevertheless we'll take it!

As such a somewhat belated squad announcement for the final ODI tour this season follows:

NAT OD 1

Once again Zimbabwe is the venue (they really don't like travelling do they?) and this time they also won the hosting rights. All matches will be live @13:00 UTC.

3rd vs Sri Lanka on Dry
4th vs England on Crumbling
5th vs Netherlands on Crumbling
6th vs Zimbabwe on Crumbling
7th vs New Zealand on Crumbling

The Touring Party
  1. Hakeem wa Mathai
  2. Andrew Kibet
  3. Jomo Kibaki
  4. Zaccheus Kinyua
  5. Nelson "The Cat" Ninelives
  6. Bennedict Maina
  7. Amin Kuria (Debut)
  8. Thabiti Wanyama
  9. Bilashi Njoroge (Debut)
  10. Hank de Ranger
  11. Brian Nafukho
  12. Silas Juma
  13. Achmed Lostwalleti
  14. Ananaias Wako
  15. Festus Murungi
  16. Saul Luseno
  17. Vasyl Lomachenko
  18. Robert Whittaker
Congratulations to Amin Kuria and Bilashi Njoroge on making their Senior debuts this tour and, as always, thanks to the club managers for training and releasing the squad. Let's see if we can make it a clean sweep this tour. :thumbsup

Apologies for not posting sooner.

The U20s are currently on their first tour following the election. We are in the rarefied heights of division 2; my thanks to dravy for getting there last season! The U20s have not qualified for a WC for some time. So our goal is simple, stay in division 2.

Of course if we can do better than that, we will. So far, the tour is going well and we have won both matches. Bermuda won the tour bid and went seam heavy which wasn't ideal for us. However, it did give Kenya the opportunity to bring out its 3 pretty young fasties.

Unusually, our ratings are towards the top end of those teams competing and today we knocked off the team pulling the highest ratings. Tomorrow will be interesting as humid weather, tired players and U20s can create havoc. Hopefully we are up to it.

It would be good to see some more Kenyan supporters following the side:

Well - we have had a good week. Four games and four wins. That leaves us with promotion and a game tomorrow to see if we can win the division 2 title.

Tune it at 05:30 FTP time tomorrow to find out:

match 5821222

After posting a perfect record in the last OD tour, we go today in the T20 tour. We are in division 3 so really need to promote...... so hopefully we can repeat our result from the last tour, fingers crossed.

The tour is here:

https://www.fromthepavilion.org/leagueo ... 01178#curr

and our first match which kicks off at 11:30 FTP time:

match 5821333

It would be great to see a bunch of Kenyan supported watching the game,
