Nairobi: The ICC is investigating claims of irregularities involving a Kenyan player during the match against Pakistan at Hambantota during the 2011 World Cup. ESPNcricinfo has learned that the ICC has also advised the Kenyan board not to engage the player concerned in any official capacity.
Pakistan won the match by 205 runs after bowling out Kenya for 112. During the Pakistan innings Kenya's bowlers conceded 37 wides, equalling the world record.
"Cricket Kenya has...been advised that at this stage the ICC cannot comment on any investigations," Tom Sears, the board's chief executive, told ESPNcricinfo. "We are happy to assist the ICC in any way to ensure that any corruption in the game is dealt with and if there has been any wrongdoing, any individuals involved are punished accordingly. The Kenyan Ministry of Sport and Youth Affairs is aware of the allegations and has also pledged their support in eradicating any corruption."
