Report

KENYA WOMEN v UK ARMED FORCES WOMENMATCH 5 REPORT (Mon 2 Oct) by Richard V Isaacs UKAF LADIES WON BY 29 RUNS

The United Kingdom Armed Forces Ladies team broke their tour duck with a sensational win over a youthful Kenya Women by 29 runs at the Rift Valley Sports Club in Nakuru on Monday.

The win centred round a patient but valuable 34 from Georgie Cant and four wickets apiece for the gentle pace of Sarah Streete and Caz Norris, aside a passionate fielding display from the team.

In a bizarre game where all of the overs were forced to be bowled from the Tennis Courts end due to the dangerously worn state of the pitch at that end and an outfield strewn with loose grass cuttings, it was no surprise that just four boundaries were hit across the two innings.

Electing to bat first on the two-paced pitch, losing Mel Vaggers to the second ball of the innings didn’t auger well.

But a superb partnership between skipper Hazelle Garton and Georgie Cant of 58 in 100 balls, taking quick singles and well-judged twos, albeit assisted by some wayward bowling from the home side, took the visitors to 59-1 in the 16th.

When Garton departed for 19 (45 balls) and was followed swiftly by Connie Cant without scoring immediately after drinks, the Kenyan side sensed an opportunity.

Georgie Cant was finally removed for a superb 34 off 61 balls but her dismissal prompted a collapse, as UKAF slid from 81-3 to 95 all out – just Caz Norris with 12 joining the double-figures club.

Talented seamer Kelvia Achieno took 3-4 in four overs and there were two wickets apiece for Flavia Atieno and Emily Wambui for the home team.

Much relied upon the experienced players in Mary Wambui, Queentor Abel and Esther Wangari in the Kenyan team to chase down the challenging target, given the conditions.

Four maidens in the first seven overs from Garton and Kirsty Gavillet showed just how tough it was going to be, especially when the latter removed Abel for just 2.

Gavillet picked up a second wicket to leave the hosts floundering on 9-2 from their opening nine overs but while Wambui and Wangari were at the crease, there was always danger that they could take the game away.

They added 30 in 47 balls, including three fours, the first boundaries of the day, before Esther became the first of Sarah Streete’s four dismissals (4-15 in 6 overs), swiping in an attempt to up the rate.

And when Mary Wambui succumbed to player of the match Caz Norris (4-17 in 4.4 overs) for an uncharacteristic but nonetheless required 59-ball 26, it was only a matter of time as they fell from 53-4 to 66 all out – ending 29 runs short.

It was the perfect game from the visitors – nudging and nerdling their way, without hitting a single boundary to 96 all out and then proceeding to take the pace off the ball in the defence, lead excellently by Garton (0-6 in 6 overs) and Gavillet (2-16 in 6) at the start of the innings.

This result is nothing more than the UKAF Ladies team deserve as they have shown improvements in each game – today was the culmination of a lot of the aspects learnt from the Nairobi leg of the tour.

However, but not to take anything away from the win, the pitch and the ground certainly played its part in the proceedings – the requirement of the chase was not conducive to the Kenyans attacking style of play.
