THE national cricket team turns its focus on the Afri pals this Easter after successfully weathering the challenge of Englandâ€™s Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) last month. Afripals is a select team of leading Kenyan cricket players.
The tourists start with a Twenty20 game next Friday, before two one-day games.
+Lordâ€™s, cricketâ€™s most famous ground, is set for a $398.5 million redevelopment, owners the MCC announced.
Over the next 10 years, five of the northwest Londonâ€™ groundâ€™s stands will be redeveloped, though not the 120-year old pavilion, which is a listed building.
Other plans include the building of a hotel, private apartments, a new academy and the installation of floodlights and all come after a series of consultations with the clubâ€™s 22,000 full and associate members.
The ground is owned by the MCC, a private club which still has a major influence on the sport despite handing over most of its functions to the ICC.
On their tour, Uganda beat and drew with the MCC.
