Uganda was to host the six-team competition from 26 October to 2 November, however, due to a recent elevation in the ICC’s ongoing safety and security assessment level, it has been decided to relocate the event to the Malaysian capital.
In coming to this decision, the ICC coordinated with a range of local authorities and security experts.
“Thankfully, the Malaysian Cricket Association has offered to host the tournament at short notice, and, based on previous experience, we anticipate a successful event in Kuala Lumpur.”
The six teams competing in the event are Bermuda, Malaysia, Nepal, Singapore, Uganda and the USA.
The full schedule, squads and match officials for the tournament will be released in due course.
