Nairobi:Kenyan cricket officials said they were hopeful of the national team's success in next week's ICC Intercontinental Cup semi-finals and a return to the old glory following two years of misery.

This follows the team's morale-boosting 3-0 whitewash over the Zimbabwe A side in Harare this week in the run-up to the Intercontinental Cup semi-finals against Bermuda in Namibia on October 23-25.

"Our position is very positive," Kenya Cricket Association boss Samir Inamdar said. "The results are a reflection of our ambition to restore our position in cricket. It was a tremendous achievement."

Inamdar said the Kenyans, who have only played only two One-day internationals since their historic semi-final finish in the 2003 World Cup in South Africa, showed their seriousness especially as they faced essentially Zimbabwe's national side in the one-dayer and the final three-day game.

But he warned that the team could not be complacent against Bermuda, which is coached by former West Indies batsman Gus Logie, adding it needed to improve its batting in order to score enough to win.
