I have spent quite a bit of time on this blog writing tirades about the poor coverage cricket gets in Kenya's media. It is only fair that when a good article comes along, it gets the credit it deserves. Today's Kenya Times has just such an article, written by Mutwiri Mutuota. For those who have not kept up with what has happened to Kenyan cricket over the last three years, it gives a fairly accurate summary of what has gone on. It is well written, well balanced and unlike so many articles we see, does not look to criticise, but instead takes a frank look at what Cricket Kenya and those connected with the game need to do to improve the situation. There are some good quotes from Hossain Ayob, and Roger Harper, some we haven't seen before and some old ones. It also calls for CK to do more to publicise the game and their efforts. This is something I heartily agree with. Whatever their shortfalls, the KCA were good at telling people what they had done and blowing their own trumpet. CK actually have done a lot more than KCA did in their last couple of years, but we have heard less about it. Modesty will not do in this situation. CK need to cry it from the rooftops that they are resuccitating the game. Enough from me though, read Mutuota's article. Hopefully it will be the first of many like it!
