Most of our overseas visitors have  confirmed  their  travel  ar-
rangements  and  arrival dates in Kenya, with many arriving early
in order to acclimatise themselves to local conditions.
A full programme of friendly matches has been scheduled  to  give
the  teams  a chance to 'play themselves in' at the testing alti-
tude of 5000 ft.
Organising comittee secretary, Robbie Armstrong provided the fol-
lowing details of the teams' arrival plans:

BANGLADESH  - The first team to arrive on  22nd  January  -  they
have  been  coached  by  Indian  Test  star Amarnath.  Bangladesh

obviously the team to watch.

HOLLAND - Twice losing finalists will  arrive  on  1st  Febraury.
Holland  who  have  sent a representative to Kenya who spent four
days in Nairobi checking out the grounds, hospitals, hotels,  are
taking  the tournament very seriously.  They are the top seed and
expect to do well. They will be cheered on by over 40 supporters.

HONG KONG - From the far east, Kenya welcomes Hong  Kong  on  the
5th of February.

IRELAND - They are present for the first time in the  ICC  trophy
and  have  enlisted  the services of David Houghton ex-captain of
