Last Male Standing

Last Man Stands proudly teamed up with Ol Pejeta Conservancy, The British Army (BATUK), Fauna & Flora International, Australian High Commission (Kenya), The East Africa Cricket Foundation, Obuya Cricket Academy & The Maasai Cricket Warriors on the 14th June 2015 to help raise awareness of the plight of Sudan, the last male Northern White Rhino left alive today.

Sudan is heavily protected on the beautiful Ol Pejeta conservancy in Laikipia in Central Kenya. He is the last male in his species, with the other four Northern White Rhinos left in the world all being females.

The weekend started on the Saturday at the Maasai Cricket Warriors’ village, Il Polei, where the Warriors hosted the Obuya Academy, Australian High Commission & BATUK for a day of warm up games. Over 300 Maasai men, women and children were in attendance for the kids’ cricket clinic in the morning, the opening of the village’s new sports & community centre (generously funded by the Australian High Commission), and to watch the afternoon’s games.

On the Sunday, the serious cricket started as four teams competed in a LMS tournament at one of the most beautiful locations in world cricket, in the middle of the Ol Pejeta conservancy, as part of the inaugural Last Male Standing Rhino Shield. The Maasai Cricket Warriors brought with them colour and charisma, while BATUK competed strongly, but it was left to the talented Obuya Cricket Academy (led by Kenya international David Obuya) to take out the title with a close fought victory over The East Africa Cricket Foundation in the final. Well played the Obuya Academy!
