Kenya and Nigeria are all set to lock horns with each other for the third time in the ongoing Uganda T20I Tri Series 2021. In their first meeting, Kenya beat Nigeria by chasing down the target of 108 runs in the allotted time. In their second clash, Kenya dominated Nigeria and defeated them with a margin of 61 runs.

Currently, Kenya is placed at the top of the table with 3 wins from five games. Nigeria had a frustrating outing in this series as they are yet to register their first win and are rooted on the table with nothing in their bag. According to that, Kenya will have an upper hand against Nigeria in the upcoming game of the series.
