The batting courage of batters over the last few decades has achieved heights in limited-overs cricket. The ball change practices, smaller boundaries, and better quality bats have made it easier for the batter to score high runs in the innings. In 2003, The Kenya Cricket Team became the first-ever Associate Nation to enter a world-cup semi finale’. The former statement is self-explanatory; it removes any doubt concerning the capabilities of Kenya as an excellent cricket team. Kenya played its first ODI match on 18 February 18, 1996, against India at Barabati Stadium in Kolkata. They registered their first win in an ODI against West Indies in a group stage match at Pune.
