The match was awarded to England on a faster scoring rate after a tropical rainstorm halted their victory chase 31 runs short with 4.3 overs remaining. But the Kenyans believe the calculations made were incorrect and, after a full meeting of the KCA Board yesterday, they have decided to send a fax to the England and Wales Cricket Board with their complaint.
They claimed the regulations dictate that the home association should rule on the dispute and want a response from England by tomorrow - before Saturday's third and final one-day international.
If the boards fail to reach agreement, England are entitled to appeal to the International Cricket Conference, but are expected to accept the Kenyans' interpretation - leaving the A team needing victory on Saturday to seal the one-day series.
Yesterday, Kenya slumped to 154 for 8 after England had declared on a total of 402 for 4 when a rainstorm ended play 90 minutes early on the second day of the three-day match at the Ruaraka Sports Club, Nairobi.
