The selectors said Otieno and his opening-partner David Obuya, who was also dropped, had failed to deliver during the recent tour of Bangladesh and Zimbabwe. Otieno scored 8 runs in three innings in Bangladesh before being dropped for the final ODI.
"I am very bitter right now and am even considering retiring from international cricket," he said. "I am very disappointed considering what I have done for this country. "I am crying for justice. I should be treated fairly and judged fairly as the whole top order failed in Bangladesh."
Otieno had been a virtual ever-present in the national side since 1996 and he is one of only three players - Steve Tikolo and Maurice Odumbe being the others - to have played more than 60 ODIs for Kenya.
