KCC v Israel

Kenilworth were asked to host Sri Lanka v Israel in the ICC Trophy (World Cup Qualifiers) in 1979. Due to eventual winners Sri Lanka’s political stance, they refused to play Israel giving them a bye into the next round. As a result, Kenilworth stepped in to play Israel in a warm up match in Sri Lanka’s place.
