A fascinating story of how Massai warriors in Mombassa have gotten involved in the game of cricket in The Taipei Times. Of course, I just like their hybrid outfits that combine beaded headdresses, wrap skirts, and knee pads. “It is an easy game because when you bowl, it is just like throwing the spear,” said Francis Meshame, part of a team of cricketers who have embraced the game, but not the sport’s traditional whites. “The pads we use are just like the shields we use when we are fighting, and the bat itself is just like the rungu, the clubs that we use.”
