Nairobi:The crisis within the Kenyan cricket firmament just refuses to blow over with top players including former captain Steve Tikolo, expressing their reluctance to play for the country in upcoming ICC Inter-continental Cup matches.

Tikolo along with medium pacers Thomas Odoyo, Peter Ongondo, opening batsman and wicketkeeper Kennedy Obuya had been named in a 31-man squad for a match against Namibia in February and Uganda in March though their availability hangs in the balance.

According to sources close to the Kenyan players, the likes of Tikolo and Co have decided that they won't play until they get any direction from the Minister for Sport.

It may be mentioned here that Kenya Cricket Association (KCA) was accused of mismanagement by the government and disbanded two weeks ago, but the cricket governing body moved the court and succeeded in eking out a temporary order to continue managing the sport.
