So HK Women have been playing Japan Women this week. In Osaka on Astro. Won the first two games comfortably, but mixing it up for this third game and at risk of massive upset.


Kary Chan missing due to injury too.

**** me we got the win but it should have never been that close. HK were complacent with selections, strategy and execution and nearly paid for it

Some good batting by Japan tho

Very sad how Kenyan cricket has devolved. Were spoke of a prospective Test nation at one stage and made a WC SF but are now playing World Cup qualifiers against St Helena (whose total population is 0.1% that of Nairobi's).

Saw that on cricinfo, that was funny. Hope all the remote imperial remnants end up playing T20Is just for the lol thrashings. Saved by the rain too - Kenya v St Helena is otherwise the massivest of mismatches not involving Mali W.

Does the world need a strong Kenya cricket team?

Internal squabbling, unresolved colonial era hang ups about taking cricket to the natives and general visionless malaise will do that.

Well, quite.

And on your first point, does world cricket need a strong Afghanistan, a strong Nepal, a strong Netherlands etc? Not necessarily but if we don't want the game to be a cute anachronism in a half century we should be concerned when cricket teams degrade as badly as the Kenyans have.

Kenya bowled Mali out for 30 and chased the score down in 15 balls.

Reminds me of my days of school cricket (my school side would have been Mali in this situation, not Mali).
