Kenyan training squad named for Bangladesh series

Kenya has named a 27-man cricket squad to start training on Wednesday for the One-day International (ODI) series against Bangladesh here later this month.

The selection came after several leading players criticised the cricket authority for not putting in place a proper training programme ahead of the three matches scheduled for the Nairobi Gymkhana club on July 19, 22 and 23.

Long-serving captain, Steve Tikolo, who has been named in the provisional squad, left for England last week to rejoin Haveriggs Cricket Club in Lancashire on a three-week contract.

The selected players include twelve members of the A squad currently on tour of Denmark.

Pace attack behind Caribbean success

Coach Greg Chappell has described the performance of young pace bowlers in India’s Test series win in the Caribbean as outstanding and said the team now had bowlers to win under any condition.

“We have won with three young fast bowlers and it’s a credit. Along with Irfan Pathan, we have got four fast bowlers of variety which would help us play under any condition, inside or outside India. I think we are better equipped than ever before,” Chappell said.
