This year’s East Africa Premier League was transformed into a 5 day extravaganza from the multi-week event of before. This came with a few ups and downs, that I hope I will get into later on. This post is about celebrating the fact that for the first time a Kenya has won the Premier League. On Sunday they defeated Ruwenzori Warriors by 9 wickets to end the Ugandan team’s 2 year stranglehold of the competition. They were led by national team, Collins Obuya who was named man of the tournament. There was also the sterling shows with the bat from former Pakistan international Kamran Akmal, who vindicated Cricket Kenya’s decision to bring in the big names, with a number of half centuries over the course of the tournament. I understand there were also some very critical contributions from a number of up and coming Kenyan youngsters, which I hope to get into later. As for now it is on to the East Africa Cup, where I am hoping to see more from the same Kenyan franchises.
