Both, Kenya and Bermuda have started off the tournament in a disappointing fashion as they have ended up defeated in the couple of matches that they have respectively participated in. In the 5th and 6th spot in the points table at the moment, at least one of them in all probability would open their account and then try to attain a positive momentum going ahead in the competition. Under current circumstances, Kenya look to be more adept to emerge triumphant over Bermuda.

Sunny weather with no chances of rain and the temperature ranging around 33 degrees Celsius is expected during the course of the game.
The track would assist the batsmen and the overall nature of the same would remain constant thus creating little troubles to them throughout the course of 40 overs.
Predicted Playing XI:
Irfan Karim and Dhiren Gondaria along with Collins Obuya would have to assume the responsibilities at the top for Kenya whilst the likes of Shem Ngoche and NM Odhiambo would have notable impacts upon the eventual outcome of the game as well.
Irfan Karim (WK), Alex Obanda, Dhiren Gondaria, Collins Obuya, Rakep Patel, Shem Ngoche (C), Jasraj Kundi, NM Odhiambo, Lucas Oluoch, Elijah Otieno, Pushpak Kerai
Dion Stovell and Delray Rawlins continue to be the rock behind Bermuda’s batting lineup whilst the likes of Kamau Leveriock and Deunte Darell would be expected to provide the accelerate in the scoring rate later on . Onais Bascome would be an integral figure with the ball for them.
Okera Bascome (WK), Dion Stovell (C), Janeiro Tucker, Delray Rawlins, Kamau Leverock, Deunte Darrell, Malachi Jones, Rodney Trott, Terryn Fray, Onais Bascome, George O Brien
Irfan Karim was in a good run of form in the previous match, as he steered away to his half-century and eventually scored 51 runs in 46 deliveries thus providing Kenya a significant start in the game. Collins Obuya looked in fine touch with the bat as he raced away to 16 runs with a boundary and a six in 10 balls but couldn’t build onto it furthermore. However, he scalped two wickets with ball conceding merely 12 runs in three overs and hence that shows that even in an 0ff-day with the bat, Obuya can earn a considerable number of points with the ball. He is a pivotal player to Kenya’s chances in the tournament too. One of the major reasons behind Bermuda’s defeat to Singapore was the collective failure of their most reputed two batsmen; Dion Stovell and Delray Rawlins who scored a combined total of one run in that match. However, they are perfectly capable of getting back into the groove quickly and hence should most definitely be a part of the fantasy XI side.
1: Collins Obuya
2: Delray Rawlins
