"We can beat any side if we play to our potential. We must try to play to our potential and don't worry about the opposition -- that is what we must try to do," Tikolo said.

The Kenyan captain admitted that the absence of senior player Maurice Odumbe, who is serving a five-year ban for his alleged involvement in match-fixing, has affected his team's balance. "We are going to miss him as a player."

Tikolo hit out at the International Cricket Council (ICC) for not allowing Kenya to play more One-Day Internationals.

"I think our status as a one-day team is pretty useless if we are not going to get enough matches," he said.

Kenya has not played a game since April 2003 and it is a poor reflection for a team which reached the semi-finals of the 2003 World Cup.
