Colombo: Feb 28, 2011

Kenya may have been battered and bruised by two heavy defeats against New Zealand and Pakistan in their first two World Cup games, but captain Jimmy Kamande feels that there would be more pressure on Sri Lanka when the two teams clash at the R Premadasa Stadium on Tuesday.

“We have nothing to lose. Sri Lanka are the ones who would be under pressure to perform at home. And now, obviously, having lost to Pakistan, it s a must-win game for them,” Kamande said at a news conference.

Kenya s performance at the World Cup has been one of the low points of the marquee event and the Kenyan captain expects his players to exude more commitment.

“We need to go out there and give our 110 per cent tomorrow. We just want to do the basics right, we don t want to complicate the game,” he added.
