Kenya - Ready for another surprise

9 Feb 2011, Nairobi: Preview of Kenya

Predicted win odds: less than 5% Kenya stunned the world when they reached the semifinals in the 2003 world cup. They are well led by skipper Jimmy Kamande and coached by former West Indies allrounder Eldine Baptiste. "We have had to make some very tough calls and there are some players that have been unlucky to miss out but we firmly believe this is the best squad to go to the World Cup and perform well," said Eldine Baptiste.

Kenya have a win-loss record of 6-16 and a 1 tie in world cup matches. Their form will revolve around veterans Thomas Odoyo and Collins Obuya, plus the evergreen Steve Tikolo.

Strengths: Steve Tikolo and Thomas Odoyo are taking part in their fifth World Cups; Jonty Rhodes has improved their recent fielding performance.

Weaknesses: Lacks bowling and also fresh new batting talent to post bog scores that counteract this weakness.

Kenya World Cup squad: Jimmy Kamande (captain), Tanmay Mishra, James Ngoche, Shem Ngoche, Alex Obanda, Collins Obuya, David Obuya, Nehemiah Odhiambo, Thomas Odoyo, Peter Ongondo, Elijah Otieno, Morris Ouma, Rakep Patel, Steve Tikolo, Seren Waters
