Kenya's Cricket Heroes

Later today (20th March) a team from Kenya will go out to do battle against a far more experienced side in something of a David vs Goliath style clash.

Kenya are undoubtedly the under-dogs but they are led by legendary Captain Steve Tikolo. New Zealand will not have an easy ride.

The ICC World Cup is here once again- is it really 4 years?-and the boys from team Kenya did a great job in an emphatic victory over Canada in their opening match of the competition. True to form Captain Steve Tikolo led from the front and by example in a fine display of a team working as a single unit. The team came to the World Cup fresh from victory at the World Cricket League tournament held in Nairobi between 29 January and 7 February this year. Kenya recorded good wins against Bermuda, The Netherlands, Ireland and Canada before beating Scotland in the final.
