Brijal Patel will replace Maurice Odumbe in Kenya's squad for next month's Champions Trophy in England. Patel, who plays for Aga Khan Sports Club, is a legspinner and bats in the middle order.

The reason Patel was enlisted in the squad was because Odumbe was banned for five years after being found guilty of receiving money from bookmakers, a charge Odumbe said he was "shocked and surprised" by.

He was supported by Steve Tikolo, the captain, who called the decision unfair and said that the Kenya Cricket Association's action had affected the morale of the team.
