Cricket: KENYA DATE FOR CRICKETERS.

Byline: By CHRIS BEECH

THE Irish cricket squad is to be invited to a pre-World Cup competition in Kenya early next year.

Ireland, The Netherlands, Scotland, Canada and Bermuda will join hosts Kenya for one-day matches during the competition, to be held at three grounds in Nairobi.

"ICC (International Cricket Council) match referee Mike Proctor inspected all the grounds in June and made recommendations on what needed to be done," said Tom Tikolo, chief executive of Cricket Kenya and a former national captain.

"We are improving the scoreboards, outfields, pavilions, changing rooms and showers," he said, adding that the final ICC inspection of the facilities was due to take place today.
