Kamande called up to cricket squad

12 January 2015, 15:49

Nairobi - Former national captain Jimmy Kamande has been called up to the Kenya squad that will participate in the World Cricket League Division Two tournament in Namibia.

The 36-year-old Kamande replaces the injured Dhiren Gondaria, who suffered a broken arm last month while on tour in India with the Kanbis Sports club.

"Cricket Kenya (CK) would like to confirm that the selection committee alongside the technical staff have approved Jimmy Kamande as a replacement player for Dhiren Gondaria in the national team for the World Cricket League tournament," a statement from the CK noted. 

"Gondaria has been replaced due to an injury he sustained while in India with his club in December, after which recent medical tests were done and reports were received.

"The replacement of a player requires the approval of the Event Technical Committee before the replacement player can be officially added to the squad and we are happy to say this has been done."

Whilst Kamande will add experience to Steve Tikolo's side, the loss of Gondoria is a major one since the 20-year-old has been near the top of the domestic run-scoring charts throughout the season.
