The finals of the East Africa Premier League and East African Cup have been re-scheduled following last month's postponement caused by a waterlogged outfield at Nairobi Gymkhana Club.
Rwenzori Warriors will take on the Nile Knights in the final of the EAPL on Saturday December 3, while the Knights are also scheduled to tackle Kongonis in the EAC final a day later. Both games will take place at Nairobi Gymkhana Club.
Cricket Kenya chief executive Tom Sears said: "We are delighted to be able to re-schedule the matches and bring an exciting climax to the inaugural year of the East African competitions. The events have generated enormous interest throughout the region, the whole of Africa and beyond and we are already working on plans for next year.
"The finals will be a fitting way to end the year and we look forward to two days of highly competitive cricket and crowning the first champions of the East African Cup and East Africa Premier League."
