Tanzania is considering sending a squad to the UK, under the watchful eye of the MCC in London.

The objective of the UK tour is to gauge the team and prepare for the International Cricket Council's World cricket league for division four to be held between August and September in a country to be named later. MCC last year paid a visit to some African countries that included Mainland Tanzania and Zanzibar where they played a couple of matches against local sides.

Other planned trials tour include playing against Kenya at a date and venue to be named later after communicating with the Cricket Kenya officials. The trials and UK tour is aimed at giving the team exposure and look forward to staging a qualifier campaign to feature in the 2011 World Cup to be jointly staged by India, Pakistant and Sri Lanka.
