That's a shame. Great player.

The end of an excellent career. I remember watching Steve Tikolo cracking a 50 against the Australians in the 96 World Cup when I was still a youngin. There was an elegance in his style of play and a flamboyancy in the Kenyan team in general that made them my '2nd' favourite international team. From the interviews I read he also came across as a very humble man. I hope he remains involved in Kenyan Cricket and heps to strengthen it in the future. Congrats to him on a great career.
EDIT: 50 was not against Australia, was against India.

Terrific player for a long time, but it's probably about the right time for him to go - isn't he in his mid-late-30s by now?
Real shame he never got to play Test cricket, but I guess that's just the way it goes sometimes.
