International cricket is all set to make a grand return to Kenya after a decade when they host Nepal for a five-match T20I series followed by three one-dayers. The series will get underway on August 25 (Thursday) when both teams lock horns with each other in the first T20I at the Nairobi Gymkhana Cricket Ground. Here is everything you need to know about the Kenya vs Nepal 2022 series.
Nepal have named a star-studded with star leg spinner Sandeep Lamichhane as their captain. Gyanendra Malla, Shahab Alam, and Bibek Yadav marked their comeback to the national team. Young wicketkeeper-batter Arjun Saud has earned a maiden call-up to the national side.
Kenya, on the other hand, will be led by Shem Ngoche. They have a few experienced cricketers in their ranks, who are well capable of causing upsets. The hosts will be motivated to come out as a unit and fire in unison to mark a new dawn in the country’s sports history.
