Dutch draw series

NAIROBI, Kenya, February 18 – Netherlands leveled their One Day International (ODI) series against Kenya with an 80 run victory over the hosts on Thursday.

Kenya who won the toss and decided to field were restricted to 120 all out with Mudassar Bukhari and Mark Jonkman the bane of Kenya’s batting order with three wickets each.

Hiren Varaiya starred with the ball by taking four Dutch wickets while Nehemiah Odhiambo took 3-35.

The hosts batting did not have one of its better days producing poor returns with Jimmy Kamande the highest getter with 42.

The alarm bells started ringing when Kenya was at 67-5 following the dismissal of Collins Obuya in the 19th over.

Odhiambo (19) and Kamande forged Kenya’s partnership of 38 runs to steady the ship before it was broken by Peter Borren who followed it up with clean bowling Shem Obado two balls later to leave Kenya perched at 106-7.

Borren and Bas Zuiderent (56) partnership of 47 proved to be main drive towards victory for the Dutch.

     What happened in London is appalling! But it is a clear message from the disgruntled young generation of Britain. They are fed up with incompetent leadership. They are demanding change. The Principals in the UK coalition government need to heed to this call, and step aside. Kenya shall support progressive voices in Britain who want to see change in their country.

      I disagree, very strongly, robbery, theft, murder, looting is criminal! What has that got to do with societal change? The  cost of unfettered democracy and poor (widespread single parenthood) is self destruction as we saw in GB. Period!

    I would wat to think that this is not really Just about the death Duggan (God rest his soul in Peace). Much more surfaces when you critically look at the intricacies of the drama that unfolded. If it was in Kenya Waaaaaaaaa i think we would be talking about how many bodies are at the Morgue !!!

    ” Kenyan police have shot, either intentionally or otherwise..’ Well said. I don’t like how international media runs to Kenya so fast whenever there’s an issue. Our leaders are swayed by western leaders’influence. This should stop!

    When the boys did the same in Tunisia, Cairo, Yemen e.t.c the West hailed them as heroes.
    When they hesitated in Libya, the West goaded them on and promised them support. They even dropped armaments from the sky to make it more fun.

    Now their own boys are reading from the same script it is called “criminality, pure and simple”. What goes round, comes around. Would it have made a difference if the boys added “the queen must go” to their chants? I mean who wouldn’t want to throw a grand wedding at great expense to the taxpayer?
