Jimmy Kamande Profile

Jimmy Kamande’s early progress was seamless, via the Under-19 World Cup into the full squad in time for the 1999 World Cup, but there he fell foul of the authorities after being reported for having a suspect action. Undeterred, Kamande went away and reinvented himself as an offspinner, and after initial scepticism he showed that he was worth his place in that role, and he is now almost an allrounder. Not a big man, he gets considerable bounce and turn and possesses a good quicker ball, with not a hint of the action that got him into trouble. Though he initially struggled to cement a role with either bat or ball in the senior side Kamande has since become a regular contributor with both bat and ball, particularly in limited-overs cricket. He succeeded Maurice Ouma as national captain in late 2010, inheriting a side in transition which was struggling to remain at the forefront of Associate cricket.
