Kenya will be on a revenge mission in today’s final as Bangladesh emerged unbeaten champions in the last edition of the tournament after they defeated Kenya by 34-28 points last year.

The Kenyan team is also using this year’s tournament to prepare for the World Cup in December 2022 in Dubai, a competition in which they also finished second last year.
