Written By: Kennedy Lang'at

The International Cricket Council (ICC) Under 19 Cricket World Cup warm up game between Kenya and India failed to take place today in New Zealand due to torrential rain in Christchurch.

The Kenyan team was among teams that were scheduled to play today in preparations for the global event set to start this Saturday at the Hagley Park in Christchurch.

Other matches which were washed away by the rain include Australia against former Champions South Africa, England versus Sri Lanka and Canada were to play Ireland.

The 22-day tournament, which brings together 16 teams, will be played across seven venues in the cities of Christchurch, Queenstown, Tauranga and Whangarei.

Kenya will open its campaign against South Africa on Sunday while defending champions the West Indies are slotted to play hosts New Zealand in what is the showpiece match from among four scheduled for the opening day on Saturday.
