Swamibapa win Twenty-20 crown

Swamibapa remain the team to beat in Kenya Cricket, as their 'A' team defeats Nairobi Jafferies 'A' for the NPCA Twenty-20 crown. While the result was, perhaps, not unexpected, what is good is to see the bowlers dominating. Kenya cricket has often relied on batting to get it out of trouble, so it is great to see that, even though they were on the losing side, two of Kenya's top bowlers are continuing to perform. It is only Twenty-20, but seeing Collins Obuya and Thomas Odoyo returning figures of 3 for is heartening stuff. Jimmy Kamande too seems to be on the comeback trail not only hitting a half centruy with the bat, but also joining the 3 for brigade for Swamibapa with Ababu. Slightly dissapointing, other than Kamande was the batting, but there is still a month to go before the Bangladesh tour, so Roger Harper has time to work with whoever the selectors pick.
