Team Kenya

logo

Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda joined to form the East Africa cricket team which became an Associate Member of the ICC in 1966. They played among themselves and were joined by Zambia in a quadrangular tournament that was conducted annually from 1996 until 1980. They played the first-ever ODI World Cup in 1975, with 7 of the 14 members of East Africa coming from Kenya.

Kenya left East Africa and formed a team of their own in 1981 and joined the ICC as an Associate Member the same year. They played their first ODI World Cup in 1996 with players like Steve Tikolo, Maurice Odumbe and Thomas Odoya coming to the fore. They registered a stunning 73-run victory over West Indies at the tournament.

Another major result arrived in 1998 when they beat India by 69 runs, with Odumbe starring with bat and ball. In 2001, they registered another famous win over India, this time triumphing by 70 runs.

Their greatest moment arrived at the 2003 World Cup when they reached the semifinals. But they failed to build on that success and the team never achieved those heights again. They played the 2007 World T20, the only time they quailed for the tournament but couldn’t make it past the group stages.

They lost their ODI and T20 status in 2014 after failing to qualify for the upcoming World Cup and the World T20. But in April 2018, the ICC granted full T20 status to all its members and Kenya are set to play T20s again from 2019.
