Future plans which are under way include the creation of more such facilities at Mombasa’s Simba Union Club, Kisumu Day Secondary School and Dol Dol area in Laikipia North district that has seen the involvement of the Maasai in the game.
Meanwhile, five Indian domestic players facing allegations of corruption have been banned by the BCCI’s disciplinary committee, reports Cricinfo.
The BCCI announced the penalties after studying a report on the allegations, which had arisen in May after an India TV sting and alluded to the five being involved in match-fixing and negotiating for extra — and illegal — pay.
The harshest punishment was dealt to Madhya Pradesh fast bowler TP Sudhindra, who was handed a life ban after being found guilty of “receiving a consideration to spot-fix” in a domestic game. Sudhindra was the leading wicket-taker in the 2011-12 Ranji Trophy.
Uttar Pradesh fast bowler Shalabh Srivastava will be out of the game for five years after the committee deemed him guilty of agreeing to fix a match.
