Go the Under 19s!

With most of the sports pages tomorrow (and for the next few days) devoted to Kenya's hunt for medals in Osaka, it is likely that another group of Kenyans will slip quietly under the radar as they try and qualify for their own World Championship.

I talk of course of the Kenyan Under 19 cricket team, who got their campaign off against Namibia today. I am posting results and write-ups on CricketEurope, so I won't repeat myself, but will send this thought: COME ON THE KENYA UNDER 19s!

Not for one moment am I saying forget our athletes - How good was it to see Luke Kibet cross the line to give Kenya the first Gold of the games by breaking such a long drought! While you are cheering them on however, spare a thought for our boys in Benoni. If they can win, it could usher in a whole new era for Kenyan cricket and how good would it be to have a Kenyan team sport on the rise again.

Asian under 19 qualifiers are live online. I can't seem to find any news on the african under 19 qualifiers.

So its Kenya vs Namibia round 2. Its important for Kenya under 19 to qualify and get some international exposure.

Big diappointment. 257 was always going to be a big score. Lets see if the senior team can do something in Twenty20.
