Tikolo Rejoins Haverigg

I mentioned this in the post about the squad selection, but there is a full story here for those interested. Ironically, he replaces Justin Ontong who has been called away for national duty with South Africa. Hopefully, Steve will still be available to play for Kenya in the three ODIs against Bangladesh. If not, things could get messy. This is not a good sign for Cricket Kenya. It is great that a Kenyan player is wanted as a professional by a club, but shows very poor planning. While the stint away in Haverigg may do Tikolo no harm, it will certainly not help the rest of the team prepare for the upcoming series. I hope this does not all end in tears for Kenya, it has been a difficult enough time as it is.
