Default Kenya awards players central contracts

Cricket Kenya is on the verge of offering its leading players one-year contracts.

The board has agreed terms with the players, Roger Harper, the coach, has given his views and the national selectors are now drawing up a final list of between 18 and 20 names who will be invited to sign the contracts. The selectors also need to divide the players into three categories, based on seniority and ability, which will determine how much they get paid.

"They will be offered one-year deals," Samir Inamdar, the board's chairman, told Cricinfo. "This has been made possible by the money we received from winning the World Cricket League and also from the Nimbus TV deal.

"Those chosen will receive a regular monthly salary as well as appearance fees for ODIs. For four-day Intercontinental Cup games they will get the equivalent fee for three ODIs."

The board has also offered to share a third of prize-money and appearance money with squad players. And people can still be picked from outside those on central contracts, but they will be paid on a match-by-match basis.

A few leading Kenya players have contracts overseas and Inamdar stressed that these could continue subject to the prior agreement of the board. Their central contracts will be suspended for the period they are employed playing cricket elsewhere.

Inamdar said that at the moment the contracts were for one years and the situation would be reviewed after that. Much depends on whether the board is able to attract new sponsors and also how much the board's share of the new ICC media deal with ESPN brings in.


Hope they can join us in the test fold soon.

That's a good news. They are a potential team. This decision will encourage general Kenyans to play cricket.

There further away from us in that Aspect of the game Sans Tikolo they didn't win a game in the Logan Cup.


But Hopefully they play more ODI's with teams not named Bangladesh and now there going Hosting Bangladesh, Pakistan and Sri Lanka for 20/20's they can get more full member nations to tour them. Looks like Windies A will go to Kenya instead of Zimbabwe so they're on the right track.
12.6 Syed Rasel to Sangakkara, OUT: What a delivery, completely fooled Sangakkara, first five delivery were the outswingers and now, this one comes in sharply, Sangakkara tries to left it and ball hits the off stump, top class bowling!

steve tikolo is a class player and perhaps the best african player not to have played test cricket. tikolo aside i can't think of anyone else who would benefit from a central contract.

My personal opinion is that central contracts do not work-in India, Bangladesh or elsewhere. Will elaborate further in coming days.
