Despite having the statistics in favour of them, Kenyan skipper Steve Tikolo said they have treated themselves as underdogs against hosts Bangladesh, reports BDNEWS.
"Bangladesh has improved a lot and they have a number of talented cricketers. We are going to take on the hosts as under-dogs for the first time," said the Kenyan captain at a news conference Tuesday.
Kenya's West Indian coach Roger Harper and manager Davinder Bharij were also present.
Bangladesh's only 6-wicket triumph against Kenya came in the triangular series involving India at Lal Bhahadur Shastri Stadium in May 1998 while they lost to Kenya in other six matches they played.
The Kenyan team is scheduled to play the first ODI on March 17 in Bogra. Then on March 20 in Khulna and the third and fourth ODI are billed for March 23 and 25 at Fatullah Cricket Stadium.
Kenyan Squad: Steve Tikolo, Thomas Odoyo Migai, Martin Suji, Kennedy Otieno Obuya, Otieno Suji Ondik, Peter Jimmy Carter Ongondo, Hitesh Modi, David Obuya, Collins Obuya, Alfred Luseno, Morris Ouma, Kalpesh Patel, James Kabatha Kamande and Tanmay Mishra.
