Kenya Women lock horns with Bangladesh Women in the 3rd match of the Commonwealth Games Women's (CWG) Cricket Qualifiers 2022. Kinrara Academy Oval in Kuala Lumpur will host this fixture.

Kenya Women have come to this tournament on the back of winning the Kwibuka Women’s T20 tournament. They will be eager to make an impact against their much-fancied opponents.
