Frustrating Weekend Overseas

Kenya's overseas connections had a frustrating weekend with injuries and rain taking a heavy toll on their involvement in cricket.
Hitesh Modi, as reported yesterday, had to go under the knife to sort out his broken finger, so will be unavailable for Chesham for several weeks.
Amit Bhudia also has injury worries, though he was able to help Herning secure their second and third consecutve victories in the Danish 1st Division. He scored 14 as Herning chased Albertslund's score of 101 on Saturday, then made 4 as Herning were bowled out for 98 against KB on a seriously rain affected pitch on Sunday. Not the best of weekends for Amit as both times he was out LBW, but worse was that his play was affected by damaged ligaments in his shoulder (an injury sustained last week). While he hopes to be back in action again next weekend, doctors have advised him to sit out the week's training in an effort to recouperate. Herning are now joint top of the league with 3 wins from 3 games.
James Clegg's side Fairburn saw no action over the weekend as both the scheduled matches were cancelled. Their next outing will be against the so-far unbeaten Barnsley side, Redfearns CC.
