Kenya Team World Cup History
Kenya have participated in three editions of the ICC Cricket World Cup in 1996, 1999 and 2003. They also participated in the first World Cup in 1975 as part of the East African team that also had players from Uganda and Tasmania.

  • In the 1975 World Cup, Kenya played as part of the East Africa team. The team could not do anything special and failed to get past the second round.

  • The East African team did not manage to qualify for the 1979 World Cup.

  • Kenya could not qualify for the 1983, 1987 and 1992 World Cups.

  • Kenya, playing as an independent nation and not as a part of East Africa, made their World Cup debut in 1996. though they did not do well enough to qualify for the second round, they would cherish the tournament for having defeated West Indies in a first round match.

  • The 1999 World Cup was a forgettable event for Kenya. They performed rather poorly and finished the competition with no win and a first round exit.

  • Kenya will probably never forget their 2003 World Cup performance. They defeated three test playing nations to reach the semifinals, and thereby gained a lot of praise. They were even being considered for Test status following their good show, but that did not quite happen.
