The Nairobi Jaffery Sports Club has been granted official ODI status by the ICC following the final inspection by Chris Broad on January 7.

Cricket Kenya is particularly pleased with the accreditation of this ground as it has a picturesque setting and has the size and facilities to become a high-class spectator venue for international matches. Officials had been worried as torrential rain in recent weeks left the venue underwater less than a week ago.

This news means that all three venues for the World Cricket League, which gets underway on January 30, now have ODI status. The other two venues are Nairobi Gymkhana and Ruaraka Sports Clubm which was granted ODI status at the end of last year..
