KenyaAnother national cricket team Kenya has also got their place in 2011 ICC World Cup Championships. It is the 5th ICC world Cup for Kenya team. They have done fantastic job at the Associates cricket level, but unfortunately from the last few years, their performances have been decreased at international level. Since 1996, Kenya is participating in ICC world cup series, but they have not won World Cup Championships even once. The team will be led by Captain Jimmy Kamande and experienced player Steve Tikolo. Another experienced player, Thomas Odoyo is Kenya’s most important assets in recent years. This year Kenya team’s left-arm spinners Hiren Varaiya and Seamer Ragheb have missed the chance to play in 2011 ICC world cup due to their ineffective form in the World Cup preparations. The lack of quality and mature batsmen is the main weakness of Kenya team, in spite of that this time they have good chance to beat the strongest team Australia, Pakistan, Sri Lanka because these team are struggling in recent times.
Kenya’s 2011 World Cup Squad: Jimmy Kamande (captain), Seren Waters, Alex Obanda, Elijah Otieno, Rakep Patel, David Obuya, Collins Obuya, Steve Tikolo, Tamnay Mishra, Maurice Ouma, Nehemiah Odhiambo, Thomas Odoyo, Shem Ngoche, James Ngoche, Peter Ongondo.
