Zimbabwe in Town

With a new year come new expectations and new year resolutions, and hopefully for Kenya’s cricke$t team better fortune on the field of play. However, their first major assigneent of the year will be the increasingly familiar faces of Zimbabwe, who will be arriving in Kenya for a 5 match One day international series.

The Zimbabweans will be fresh from touring fellow test minnows Bangladesh and depending on how results go there the series against Kenya could very well determine who ends up at the foot of the ODI rankings. They will be looking to the batting likes of Hamilton Masakadza, Tatenda Taibu, and Sean Williams, as well as the spin bowling of their captain, Prosper Utseya, and Ray Price as they try to avoid what would a heavily embarrasing series loss who have recently started to get the better of them on the field

On the Kenyan sides of things a series win could be the very tonic to cure an year which saw them miss out on qualification to the lucrative world T20 championships in england later this year and win only one ODI match (against Zimbabwe) and a timely morale booster ahead of World cup qualifiers later on the year in South Africa
