In Summary

  • Match umpires inspected the square and found wet spots on one side of the pitch.

Kenya XI’s game against Oman at the Nairobi Jaffreys ground was call off Thursday because of a wet wicket.

Match umpires inspected the square and found wet spots on one side of the pitch.

Top Kenyan umpires, David “Pamba” Odhiambo said: "We decided to call off the game when we spotted wet spots on the pitch that was caused by rain waters that sipped through the covers after the rainfall that fell at Lavington on Wednesday evening.”

He added: “We felt that the wet ground could result in an uneven bounce when the ball was bowled and that could be dangerous to the batsman facing it.”

Commenting on the performance of his boys, Kenya coach, Thomas Odoyo said: “There was immense improvement in our players winning three matches and losing none without key members like skipper Rakep Patel and Nehemiah Odhiambo, who are nursing injuries and Irfan Karim who is playing second division England county cricket.”
