New Zealanders will get a chance to watch Kenya’s latest Twenty20 match on Wednesday.
The West Indies-Kenyan match was held on Friday after a two-day break in the West Indies Cricket Association (WICA) Cup, with both teams set to take on Bangladesh in the third round.
However, the game will now be played from a different venue in Kenya, with the team from the United Arab Emirates playing in the final.
It will be the second time in the last three years that Kenya have hosted the tournament, with last year’s winner, Kenya, losing to Bangladesh by an innings and 9 runs in Kolkata.
Kenya won the first edition of the tournament in 2011 and it was held in Kandy for the first time in 2016.
