Kenya name squad for Netherlands I Cup and One Day Matches

Cricket Kenya has named a 14 man squad that will go to the Netherlands for the ICC Intercontinental Cup and ODI matches from 7th September.

Chairman of Selectors Alpesh Vadher said, “This squad features some new names and the return of one or two experienced players.

“Youngsters such as Duncan Allan, Irfan Karim and Emmanuel Ringera have shown great promise for the national Under 19 squad and deserve their chance, Ibrahim Akello has been impressive in the early games of the East Africa Cricket Competitions as have Lameck Onyango and David Obuya who will add experience to the squad.

“There are some players who we would have liked to consider but yet again they have made themselves unavailable which is disappointing. Cricket Kenya has offered these players contracts until the end of the current contract year subject to the same reviews that every other player goes through but they are not happy with that. What players must realise is that we will be focusing on performance and attitude and in the future will only select players who can demonstrate a real commitment to play for Kenya.”

Kenya squad: Collins Obuya (capt), Rakep Patel, Tanmay Mishra, Runesh Gudka, Hiren Varaiya, Lucas Oluoch, Dominic Wesonga, Seren Waters, Duncan Allan, Irfan Karim, Ibrahim Akello, David Obuya, Emmanuel Ringera, Lameck Onyango.
