Kenya's hero from the Intercontinental Cup match against The Netherlands seems to be back in form. Modi, who batted with a broken finger to secure Kenya a draw against the Dutch, has found it hard to get the injury completely healed, so it is great to see him making an unbeaten 80 off 89 balls as his side Chesham beat league rivals Amersham by 7 wickets over the weekend. His innings included 12 fours and a six and he also orchestrated a run out when in the field, so does not seem to be overly affected by the hangover from the injury any more, although he says:
"My finger will never be the same, though I can bat with a bit of soreness at times."
It is great to see him back playing and spending time in the middle. Hopefully this weekend is the sign of things to come.
Not much news yet of the other Kenyans overseas. Haverigg are not very good at updating their website, so it is difficult to know how Steve Tikolo is going. He hid take 4/69 with the ball on July 1st. No details on what he scored with the bat. Last week, their match was rained off so he didn't bat, and there are no details available yet for this week. Amit Bhudia's club Herning are not due to play again for another week or so.
