With Shujaa set to face Australia, Uganda and Jamaica in Pool D in Birmingham, Head Coach Damian McGrath said, “The boys are in a good place, we have been working well with Coach Geoffrey Kimani over the past few weeks to ensure that they are ready. Kenya is a team to be feared and we expect to make it out of the pool and reach the knockout stages.  “
