Tikolo takes over from Brown as Kenya coach

NAIROBI:- Former skipper Steve Tikolo has been named as Kenya's interim cricket coach, replacing Robin Brown, who stood down after the side's failure to qualify for next year's ICC World Twenty20 championships in Bangladesh. Zimbabwean Brown tendered his resignation on Monday, along with team skipper Collins Obuya and Tikolo was brought in. Tikolo, 42, was recalled from international retirement in October to help boost the team's performances. "Obuya has opted to step down as the team captain but will continue to offer his services as a player."–AFP
