In light of the growing chaos surrounding Kenyan cricket, the ICC has today announced that their Intercontinental Cup fixture against Namibia at Windhoek, which was scheduled for 25 to 27 February, will be postponed.

"In light of the current litigation and uncertainty concerning the governance of cricket in Kenya, the ICC has taken the decision to postpone this match," said Malcolm Speed, the ICC's chief executive. "This match will be rescheduled at the earliest opportunity."

The announcement came less than a fortnight after the Kenyan Cricket Association had said that its request for the game to be postponed had been declined by the ICC.

The second season of the ICC Intercontinental Cup will now begin with the match between United Arab Emirates and Hong Kong at Sharjah in April.
