The ICC has appointed Darrell Hair to stand as an official umpire in the triangular one-day series in Mombasa involving Kenya, Scotland and Canada which starts next week. He will also officiate in the World Cricket League which follows in Nairobi.
In November, Percy Sonn, the ICC president, announced that Hair would "not be appointed to international matches involving ICC Full Members". He added: "The board has discussed this matter with great sincerity and gave lots of attention to it and they've come to the conclusion that they've lost confidence in Mr Hair."
The announcement came from Cricket Kenya and a spokesman from the ICC told Cricinfo that there would be no formal media release until Sunday. The ICC added that this news did not represent an about-turn in policy from the board, insisting that Hair is still banned from officiating in any matches involving Full Member sides.
The Kenyan authorities said the other on-field umpires were Ian Gould (Eng) and Buddhi Pradhan (Nepal) while the match referee would be Javagal Srinath.
