Why the Silence?

What do all of these have in common:
Kenyan Press, Cricket Kenya, ICC, ACA?

Answer: They are all staying strangely silent on the change of venue for the U19 Cricket World Cup. Why?

Kenya's press should be screaming their condemnation of this.

Cricket Kenya should be giving us their side of the story, telling us why this was allowed to happen and what they intend to do about it.

ICC should come clean on the real reason. As per my letter, if there are genuine reasons, lets see them documented.

ACA - who will they support? Will they kowtow to their parent body or support the smaller nations they have been formed to serve.

When people say nothing, it is often because they have something to hide. I urge all readers of this site to write to any or all of the above to voice your displeasure and request transparency and action. Cricket is meant to be a game of honour - it has really lost that sheen of late.

For those in Kenyan cricket who are looking at this as an opportunity to bring down Cricket Kenya: Think long and hard about whether Kenyan cricket will survive another civil war. You will not profit from taking over a carcass. Together we might just keep our heads above water, divided we will surely drown. They may not be doing the best job possible, but make your moves legally and at the right time. That time is at the elections. It is not now. Now all those who value Kenya and cricket must stand united.
