Former President of Cricket Canada, Ben Sennik, will be honoured by both Kenya, the country he hails from, and Canada, his adopted home, at a ceremony in Canada following the conclusion of the ODI series between the two countries on August 23, 2009.
Cricket Canada and Cricket Kenya will dedicate the Ben Sennik Trophy in his honour, which will be contested for the ODI series between the two teams starting in 2009 and will be played every two years.
Sennik stepped down as Cricket Canada chief earlier this year after five years at the helm, with the cricket in the country seeing progress during his time.
Samir Inamdar, President of Cricket Kenya, is happy to support the award and said on the Cricket Canada website: "Over the years I have worked with Ben, I have always found him to be a great supporter of the game of cricket in both countries. Cricket Kenya respects him as a true friend and we are all delighted that he is being honoured in this way."
Cricket Canada's Interim President Ranjit Saini agrees: "The game grew leaps and bounds in his time and we are happy to dedicate this award as a lasting legacy to his contributions"
