Tikolo rues bad day
Steve Tikolo
Tikolo believes Kenya's performance was unrepresentative
Kenyan captain Steve Tikolo described his side's massive defeat to West Indies as their "bad day" of the World Cup.

Kenya, who had already qualified for the Super Six stage prior to the game, slumped to a 142-run defeat in a totally one-sided contest.

And Tikolo said: "If you play in such a tournament, you have a bad day and that was it today.

"We're through to the Super Six but obviously it was not a good day for us."

The West Indies, who will play no further part in the tournament, set the Kenyans a daunting 247 runs for the victory.

Chris Gayle starred with the bat, hitting a match-winning 119 runs, and was ably assisted by Shivnarine Chanderpaul's 66.

In the field, Vasbert Drakes took a career best five for 33, while fellow fast bowler Jermaine Lawson took two wickets.

After Peter Ongondo top scored for the Kenyans with 24, Tikolo called for an improvement in his side's batting for the rest of the tournament.

He said: "I think our batting has not been up to the mark. That used to be our strength.

"Hopefully that will come good in the Super Six."
