Preview for Dream11 Fantasy

As the caravan of the T20 World Cup qualifiers rolls on, Kenya will square off against Singapore in what is expected to be a pulsating encounter. Kenya managed to get their fledgeling campaign on track, after having lost back-to-back matches, with a comprehensive 46-run-win over Bermuda.

The win was set up by Dhiren Gondaria (85 off 67 balls) and ably backed up a four-wicket haul by Collins Obuya (4-27). But Kenya will know, a tougher challenge awaits them in the form of Singapore, who come into this game on the back of consecutive victories.
