View Full Version : Kenya vs Namibia

Namibia did pretty good in Kenya. Both teams kinda had a close series. Kenya won the 4 match series 2-1. One match had no result.

Namibia also played 2 matches against a so called KCA XI. Let's face it, there is nothing called a KCA XI. It's the same as Kenya national team without 3/4 of their senior players. That series was drawn 1-1.

We play Namibia in january, this results will give us an indication on what to look for and frankly, our players might not do too well.

Kenya's tour of Zimbabwe showed that Kenya is coming down to our level. They are going through bad times and they will be looking forward to beating US in the World Cup to win the battle of the minnows.

Played very well. Batting was good up until the last match. What this means is that we will have a good opponent in Namibia. We are not going to play a substandard teamand get all our hopes up with easy wins. We will have to work on it.

Namibia looks tough.....
scoring more than 270 runs in chasing against any team is not a joke.
