Tanzania have begun preparations for the World Cricket League Division Four tournament in Italy in August by playing six 50-over matches in Mombasa against various Kenyan selections.

They notched their sole win of the brief tour in the first game against a Coast Cricket Association Select XI by 243 runs. The match was the first of a triangular, also featuring a Nairobi Select XI.

Former national Under-19 opener, Sefy Khalifa, showed promise in scoring two half-centuries, while Kassim Nasoro showed why he's a key member of the Tanzanian attack, taking 5 for 29 in the first of the three-match series against the Kenya Select XI. The home team won the series, which followed the triangular, 3-0.
