Obuya has been practicing hard the last six months at the Aga Khan Sports Centre where the clinic is being held, but has taken a while to be happy with his grip. If the reports are to be believed, he now has that under control and is concentrating on perfecting his action.
The three other Kenyan youngsters at the camp are Rakeb Patel, an under 17s player from Nairobi Gymkhana, his 22 year-old club mate Hiren Varaiya, and Coast Gymkhana's Stewart Kayne. Both Patel and Varaiya have just returned from a three month trip to Bombay where they attended a spin course at the Payyade Sports Club and Cricket Club of India. It is great to see youngsters like this being given such a wonderful chance. They will no doubt all be in consideration for the quadrangular tournament coming up, so will have plenty of opportunity to put what they have learned into practice.
