Nairobi - As the Africa T20 Cup approaches, the Kenyan national cricket team,
coached by Steve Tikolo, will be looking to make a statement in South
Africa on October 4.
On their current side, Tikolo said that they have a good blend of old and young players which gives the team more balance.
He also commends the youngsters in the team as they have been impressing in recent months.
"We have senior players, who have been in the team for a while, but are not producing the desired results," Tikolo told standardmedia.co.ke.
"I'm happy that we have youngsters like Dhiren Gondaria, Rushabh
Patel and Karan Kaul, who have shown so much promise and in them, the
team has a bright future."
After losing two matches T20 matches against Saudi Arabia recently,
the former Kenyan captain says that they have already moved and are
looking forward to the next set of matches in South Africa.
"We will take our positives from the losses since we were trying new combinations," he added.
"The tournament in South Africa isn't easy and knowing that we have
to top our group to proceed, our bowlers need to adjust their lengths
and our batmen minimise their dots."
