Mombasa will stage its first one-day international next month when the Mombasa Sports Club hosts three matches between Kenya and Bermuda. The games will take place on November 11, 12 and 14.

The venue was given full ODI status in August following an inspection by ICC officials including Mike Procter.

Cricket Kenya received another welcome boost with news that Petro Kenya Limited had been signed up as a series sponsor. The income from the deal - believed to be around 400,000 Kenya Shillings (US$ 5,500) - will be used to cover the costs of staging the matches.

Prior to their visit to Mombasa, Bermuda play Kenya in an Intercontinental Cup fixture at Nairobi Gymkhana starting on November 5.
