Kenyan captain Jimmy Kamande on Saturday described their veteran batsman Steve Tikolo as 'gunnzie', something that was misinterpreted as Gandhi in the media.
Tikolo will make a final international appearance on Sunday when he steps on to bat against Zimbabwe in their concluding group A match.
Asked to describe Tikolo's contribution to the Kenyan cricket, Kamande said, "We call him 'gunnzie' (somebody who fires like a gun)..."
"He is a legend, he is the man actually who made us play one-day international cricket... He is the one who made us qualify for the first time in 1996 World Cup," Kamande said.
The word 'gunnzie' was wrongly interpreted in the media as Gandhi, the Father of the Nation.
But soon it was clarified by Tikolo himself as he said, "The captain must have meant 'gunnzie' a local word that means somebody with the firepower."
