Nairobi:Kenyan cricket captain Steve Tikolo is to join Lancashire club Haverigg for the season, the player said.

Tikolo made a triumphant return to the captaincy by leading Kenya to a morale-boosting 161-run win in the ICC Intercontinental Cup over regional rivals Uganda in Kampala last weekend.

"I will be leaving on Wednesday for Lancashire. I am excited with the prospect of playing the game in a new environment and under different conditions," said Tikolo on Monday.

But the 33-year-old batsman said he would return to play for the country in the rescheduled Intercontinental Cup tie against Namibia in Windhoek on June 4-6.

The match was originally planned to be played in February but was called off following the uncertainty over the governorship of the sport the country.
