This recieved a fleeting comment in today's editorial in the Nation entitled 'Stadia in a deplorable state'. Basically, the Chinese government are going to revamp the stadium, and the article notes that there is enough room in the complex to house a cricket ground. It is doubtful that it will happen, but it would be good to see. It would certainly help raise the profile of the game, and would give Kenya another venue in which to host Internationals. Kenya is certainly in need of a ground with decent lighting, and this could be the perfect opportunity. With two major cricket events to be held in Kenya over the next four years, and the definite possibility of more in the future, this would certainly be a worthwhile investment. Technical assistance from the ICC could probably even be arranged in the current climate of global expansion. Maybe Cricket Kenya should lobby the government before the plans are finalised.
