Profile

A tenacious batsman with a crouching, stooping stance, Hitesh Modi made his debut for Kenya in 1992 and has been a mainstay of the middle order ever since, having played in the 1996, 1999 and 2003 World Cups, as well as the the 1994 and 1997 ICC Trophies. He was named as Kenya's captain in 2004 when the senior players, led by Steve Tikolo, went on strike over contract payments, but was replaced when the dispute ended. His moderate one-day form - he failed to make a fifty between 2002 and 2006 - allied to him being based in the UK, led to him being sidelined for a while. His father Subhash is an umpire, who uniquely stood in a one-day international that his son played in, against West Indies in Nairobi in 2001.
