Kamande relieved of Kenya captaincy
Jimmy Kamande has been relieved of his duties
Cricket Kenya has relieved Jimmy Kamande of his duties as captain of the National team.

Kamande took over as captain in October 2010 and led the team at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 where the team failed to register a win.

Chief Executive Tom Sears said: "Cricket Kenya has taken the decision to stand down Jimmy Kamande as captain as part of the widespread changes we are making during our post World Cup review.

"Given that the National squad do not have any fixtures until July, when they feature in the African Cricket Association Twenty 20 tournament and we are in the process of recruiting a new National Coach and appointing a new selection panel, we will not be announcing a replacement at this stage.

"It is important that when the coach and selectors begin their roles they have a blank sheet of paper to work from. They will have an opportunity to assess all eligible players and identify those they feel have the ability, character and desire to be part of our future plans.

"They will also have the mandate to recommend the player they feel will make the best captain, someone who can lead the team by example, contribute significantly and positively on and off the field and restore some pride back into cricket in Kenya."
