The finals of the East Africa Premier League and East African Cup have been re-scheduled following the double postponement late last year.
Rwenzori Warriors will take on the Nile Knights in the final of the EAPL on Saturday January 28, while the Knights are also scheduled to tackle Kongonis in the EAC Final a day later, Sunday January 29. Both games will take place at Nairobi Gymkhana Club. Torrential rain in Nairobi led to the postponement of the finals twice in late 2011.
Cricket Kenya chief executive Tom Sears said: "After such poor weather at the end of last year we are very pleased to be able to announce the new dates for the finals. The events have proved extremely popular and we have had positive feedback from all over Africa and beyond.
"The finals will be a great start to 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."
