The UK Armed Forces Ladies Cricket Team have recorded the first win of their Kenyan tour, beating their East African counterparts by 29 runs at the Rift Valley Sports Club in Nakuru.

Following a series of defeats, Monday’s victory was a welcome turnaround for the team who are in Kenya promoting the Bowling Out Domestic Violence campaign.

The Nakuru climate clearly agreed with the British cricketers who continued their winning streak yesterday with another win over the Kenyan Ladies by 19 runs in a 15 over game.

Tuesday gave the ladies a welcome rest day which they used to experience an amazing Kenyan safari in the Lake Nakuru National Park.

Lake Nakuru National Park is located on the floor of the Great Rift Valley, surrounded by wooded and bushy grassland. Visitors can enjoy the wide ecological diversity and varied habitats that range from Lake Nakuru itself to the surrounding escarpment and picturesque ridges. This National Park is ideal for bird watching, hiking, picnic and game drives.

Yesterday the cricketing ladies ran a training session at Nakuru Day Secondary School.

Today, the tour culminates in a community #BowlingOutDV festival which will be played by past players and high profile names from Kenya.
