Kenya have recalled opening batsman Morris Ouma for the one-day international series against Bangladesh starting on Saturday. Ouma, who is also a reserve wicketkeeper, replaces Timothy Mwange, one of two youngsters expected to make their international debut in Canada but neither featured in the Intercontinental Cup nor the two one-day matches Kenya played in Toronto.


The change is part of head coach Roger Harper's desire to improve the run rate from his top order, which has failed to deliver in the last four international competitions. “We expect to be able to perform a lot better in home conditions and we're looking forward to being very competitive and really trying to turn the tables on the Bangladeshis this time,’’ said Harper.


Meanwhile Bangladesh coach Dav Whatmore said the inclusion of three youngsters for the African tour had strengthened his side.
