Cricket Kenya to conduct World Cup review

Alex Obanda
Cricket Kenya is to conduct a comprehensive review into the country's World Cup campaign.

The review will take in every aspect of the squad's preparation and performance at the event and will be conducted by Cricket Kenya Board officials, Chief Executive Tom Sears and assisted by the ICC. Detailed reports from key personnel will be considered including the coach, captain, team manager and John Moyi, CK Board member who travelled with the squad. Additionally members of the team management and players will be interviewed in depth.

The review will be finalised by May and recommendations on changes to the way the National team is constituted and operates will be put to the CK Board.

Chief Executive Tom Sears said: 'Clearly our performances at the World Cup have been completely unacceptable and a radical overhaul of our National squad is necessary. The team were comprehensively beaten in all six matches and aside from one creditable performance against Australia, the displays we saw were simply not good enough.

'An enormous amount of time, money and resources have been invested into the squad, our most experienced player Steve Tikolo stated this was the best preparation any Kenyan squad had enjoyed prior to the World Cup. There has been no return on that investment which amounts to well over $700,000 in the last 12 months and clearly this cannot be tolerated.

'We will look at every facet of our National team structure and composition and make recommendations on all areas we feel where change is necessary, I anticipate these will be widespread across all areas of the game.'
