Kenyans overseas weekly wrap up:
James Clegg continued his good run with the bat for Fairburn over the Weekend making 64 in their victory over defending champions Garford. Clegg, who has a Kenyan mother, has expressed an interest in a spot in the Kenyan team in the future. With an average of over 60 in all forms of competition so far, this is perhaps not such a far fledged idea. He will of course have to fulfil the qualifying criteria, but is still young, so has plenty of time in which to do this.
Hitesh Modi continues to be side lined as he waits for his finger to recover after surgery. Hopefully he will be able to return for club side Chesham soon, though they still managed to notch up a win without their skipper over the weekend.
In Denmark, Amit Bhudia is also having to keep patient as his club Herning are in the middle of a three week spell without cricket. Last week, their opponents were granted a postponement due to difficulty in raising a team. This weekend, no matches were scheduled as the national team were playing a practice match against a select XI. With next week's matches also postponed due to Denmark's visit to Holland, it will be a frustrating time for Amit in the lead up to Kenya A's tour. It may though be a blessing in disguise as it will give his injured shoulder a decent length of time to heal without the stress of playing.
