Last chance to prove at WC: Kamande

New Delhi: Kenya captain Jimmy Kamande is aware the next three games could be the last chance for the country to prove it's worth at the World Cup.

With the ICC set to reduce the tournament from 14 to 10 teams in 2015, probably at the expense of second-tier teams such as Kenya, Kamande says his squad wants to prove themselves in their remaining fixtures at this event — starting with Monday's Group A match with fellow struggler Canada.

The skipper says Kenya will be playing for "legends of Kenyan cricket" Steve Tikolo and Thomas Odoyo, but adds "it's not just their last chance for the World Cup, it might be for most of us."

Semifinalists in 2003, Kenya has crashed to three heavy defeats and Kamande says "we haven't done justice to ourselves."
