Martin Suji, Kenya's veteran fast bowler who has been suffering with a serious knee injury, has been asked to help the national squad prepare for their forthcoming ICC Intercontinental Cup and ODIs.

Suji, 36, has not played a representative match for 19 months and there must now be serious doubts whether he will play again. But in the meantime, he will help Alfred Njuguna to coach the team until a long-term replacement for Roger Harper can be identified. He has some coaching experience with the title-winning Kanbis side.

Samir Inamdar, Cricket Kenya's chairman, told Cricinfo that Suji could bring much to the table in terms of his vast experience and that he had "plenty to give back to the game".
