Profile

Since his debut at the age of 17 at the 1996 World Cup, Thomas Odoyo has been a key performer for his side and one of Kenya's most valuable assets. A whole-hearted allrounder, his powerful middle-order hitting has brought him more than 2000 runs at international level, while he was also the first Kenyan to take 100 wickets in ODIs with his bustling medium-fast seamers, though it took him seven games to take his first international wicket, during a spell of 3 for 25 in Nairobi against Pakistan. He has been a regular performer since then, and was the first player from a non-Test playing team to achieve the double of 1500 runs and 100 wickets in ODIs. For several years, he formed a reliable new-ball partnership with Martin Suji and in 1997-98 he shared in a then-world record ODI stand for the seventh-wicket of 119 with the other Suji, brother Tony, at home against Zimbabwe.
