- The 2019 World Cup will be jointly hosted by England and Wales and will feature 10 teams.
The national cricket team coach Thomas Odoyo on Wednesday said that Kenya must win the remaining two ICC World Cricket League Championship matches against Scotland set for Dubai on December 6 and 8, to enhance their chances of securing a place in next year’s 2019 World Cup qualifiers.
Two wins will give Kenya four points which will take them one point ahead of Scotland (15 points) on the table.
Odoyo said that to achieve that feat, the team must play some friendly games in Dubai for acclimatisation.
“It is extremely hot in Dubai in the month of December. It will be good for us to play a number of games there as part of our acclimatisation,” said Odoyo.
Commenting on Kenya’s performance against the Dutch in South Africa last weekend, where the two teams shared points 2-2, Odoyo said: “The boys made a few mistakes which we will rectify in practice sessions.”
