Oh I'm quite fond of the Kenyan team, but New Zealand and Sri Lanka are just too good for them, unless one of them completely falls apart in this form of the game, I don't think the Kenyan lineup has the aggression to top that of the very professional Sri Lankan team and the hard hitting Kiwis. If SL do send a younger squad you never know, but I hope and expect teams to send their best line ups, at least for this first 20/20 WC.
