Cricket Kenya has announced a new partnership with the online sports statistic app, FanCode as the exclusive broadcast partner of Kenya D10 in India.
Cricket Kenya, led by Mr Manoj Patel, is poised to resurrect and return to its former glory. One of the board’s first important decisions under the new leadership was to name Pacific Star Sports (PSS) as its commercial partner.
The company based in the United Arab Emirates will collaborate with the board to get Kenya Cricket right back on track. In August, Cricket Kenya and PSS will launch a domestic tournament. The first edition will have a T10 format and will commence on August 13, 2022, in Nairobi.
PSS has teamed up with ITW Universe with a plan to bring the extremely successful domestic event D Series to Kenya, which was played recently as the premier domestic event in the UAE and Oman.
FanCode will be ‘powered by sponsor’ along with the exclusive broadcast partner and Sky Exchange will be the title sponsor for the tournament.
Mr Manoj Patel stated, “We are gearing towards a Vision 2027, where we would look forward to returning to ODI Fold, qualify for ICC T20 World Cup, and work on the cricket infrastructure and popularity in Kenya. We look forward to introducing Broadcasted Domestic Events, a World Standard T10/T20 league, and player centric plan for player development. Starting from the ground level, we are set to have Kenya D10 starting from August 13th, 2022. We welcome Pacific Star Sports as a partner in our journey, and we thank them for trusting our vision for Cricket in Kenya.”
Mr Ali Akbar Khan, Director of Pacific Star Sports, said, “We are thrilled to partner with Cricket Kenya. We would be supporting the creation of multiple broadcasted events for Domestic Cricket, Bilateral Cricket, and League based cricket. In our attempt to deliver the best for Kenyan Cricket, we have partnered with ITW Universe to bring their highly successful domestic event D-Series to Kenya. This is just a start; we would soon be announcing a major league by next week.”
