Cricket Kenya is hoping to stage some international Twenty20 matches in Nairobi in early September in the build-up to the Twenty20 World Championships in South Africa.

Samir Inamdar told Cricinfo that Pakistan were very keen and Bangladesh had also expressed interest in participating. With the World Championships starting in the second week of September, a number of sides who are not overly familiar with the format are keen to get as much experience as possible.

Inamdar said he hoped he could attract a fourth country and Sri Lanka and West Indies were in the frame.
