Kirsten sets sights on 2011 World Cup


andyAndy Kirsten has arrived in Nairobi to take up his role as Kenya’s national coach and said his main job is to ensure that the side qualify for the 2011 World Cup.

‘I have been contracted for a year and my duty is to ensure Kenya qualifies,’ Kirsten told the Standard.

Kirsten has less than a year before the World Cup Qualifiers in the UAE to make his mark, but one of the problems he faces is a lack of high-profile matches. Kenya are not scheduled to play any Full Member countries between now and then, although they have a lengthy European tour that takes in Denmark, England and then Associate Twenty20, Intercontinental Cup and ODIs in Ireland.

Kenya players are very talented and I have been following the team’s prowess keenly since I left I believe they deserve Test status.
