The match was officiated by England and MCC accompanied Umpire David Millns and Kenya International  Umpire Subhash Modi while the scorers were Brenda Ingasiani and Millicent Adhiambo (East African Cricket Foundation).

David Waters one of the finest cricket administrators and a co-ordinator said that the Kenyan cricketers had a wonderful opportunity to play against a strong MCC Team which comprised of few English county cricketers and indeed had a wonderful but rare opportunity to play a longer version of two day match.

Local boys must have gained valuable experience according to David Waters.

Tariq Iqbal, official of Kenya Team congratulated MCC for a convincing win over his team.

Tariq Iqbal a former Kenya International Cricketer highlighted by saying after the fine match at least 90 per cent of the Kenyan cricketers had no experience of the two day match with different format of the game.

It was a learning experience for the boys to have a different mindset compared to the normal white ball cricket with coloured clothing which we are used to.

Overall Cricket Kenya in co-ordination with Kenya Kongonis Cricket Club must be congratulated for organizing and hosting the much awaited tour of MCC.

This prestigious Cricket Tour to Kenya has indeed added value to our Cricket in Kenya and more teams are expected to tour Kenya in Future.

According to Harpal Singh Sehmi (Palli Singh) even things were very well organized at Nairobi Club, Nairobi Gymkhana, Rift Valley Sports Club, Nakuru, and Nairobi Jaffreys.
