Default The Great Steve Tikolo

If there is any player on either side who has truly reached the World Class Level, it is undoubtedly Steven Tikolo. Batting at Number 3, Tikolo has been a legend for Kenyan Cricket, will remain rooted in their cricketing folklore for his dogged efforts for his country.
Tikolo has a solid defence, and batsman who can play all the shots in the book. Add to that his brilliant temperment and determination. He clearly stands out.
I was amazed with his batting in a certain series. He could time the ball to the fence so sweetly, and in the next minute he could blast the ball to the fence. While other batsmen tried to get used to the conditions by defending and watching the ball go through to the keeper, Tikolo was taking singles to get used to the condition. Ravi Shastri once quoted Tikolo was one player with so much class, that he could play for any side.
Indeed this players form and performance has hardly gone down despite his age. He has recently performed brilliantly in the Bangladeshi domestic league. He knows the conditions well, as well as the players. Plus he is in a rich vein of form.
On the eve of the Bangladesh-Kenya series, i believe he is the player to lookout for. If we have to win, our bowlers dominate him. He is the one Kenyan player who can definitely make a difference.
