The ICC has moved two matches of the ongoing World Cricket League Division One tournament in the Netherlands from Voorburg, where they were originally scheduled, to the Excelsior Cricket Club in Schiedam. The pitch at the Westvliet ground in Voorburg, which was approved by the ICC in May as Netherland's third venue to gain ODI status, was deemed unfit following feedback. The matches moved are the Canada V Kenya game on Friday and the fifth/sixth place play-off on Saturday.

"The decision to move the matches from Voorburg to Schiedam has been taken by the event technical committee after due consideration and consultation following feedback and reports we received on the current state of the pitches at VCC from the match officials, team managements and the ICC's own pitch consultant," tournament director Rob Kemming said. "We want to provide the players with the best available playing surfaces which I think Excelsior Cricket Club will now be able to offer."

Voorburg has, thus far, hosted three ODIs this tournament, with two won by the side chasing. Schiedam, as a result of the move, will become the fourth venue in the Netherlands to host an ODI.
