The Nairobi Gymkhana Club ground is no stranger to one-day international cricket. Thirty-six limited overs internationals have been played at the venue so far.

The first one-day international at the ground was played as recently as September 1996, but it has hosted a number of tournaments, including the ICC Knockout Trophy – referred to as the mini World Cup – in 2000.

Matches at the Gymkhana Club have produced very even results.

Two matches will be played at the ground: On February 21 Kenya takes on New Zealand, and on February 24 the Kenyans face Sri Lanka.
