The final team of two bowlers to represent Kenya at Commonwealth Games from April 4 to 15 next year in Gold Coast, Australia, will be picked on January 15.

The Kenya Bowling Association Council has the difficult task of short-listing the team as, unlike the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games where Kenya had representatives — six men and two women — third time, organisers of the “Club” games have whittled down Kenya’s quota for Gold Coast to two.

A team of 10 players — five men and five women — completed their trials at the Karen Country Club on Sunday with the testing of skills competition.

“Besides the testing of skills trials, the final team will be based on past performance and consistency,” said team manager Bernard Ndungu.

“It’s unfortunate our quota has been reduced drastically making the selection tough for the council.”
