National Cricket team will miss the services of Irfan Karim, and Karan Kaul, during the four-Nation Africa “B’ Twenty20 qualifiers set to be held in Kigali Rwanda between the 7th and 14th of this month.
Karim will miss the regional event since he is out of the country and his place has been filled by Dhiren Gondaria who will open batting with Alex Obanda.
Kaul on the other hand is nursing a wrist injury.
The Kenyan team coached by Maurice Odumbe will fight it out for the two slots reserved for the Eastern sub-region group in the ICC World Twenty20 Africa regional finals against Tanzania, Uganda and hosts Rwanda.
The event will be Odumbe’s first main assignment after he replaced Thomas Odoyo as the head coach of the national side.
The two finalists in Kigali will join Ghana and Nigeria, who made it through for next year’s continental qualifier during the North-Western sub-region tournament held in Nigeria in April.
The two qualifiers from the Southern sub-region group will be known in October after the groups’ event set for Botswana from October 28 to November 3.
