Nairobi:Kenyan coach Andy Moles has included veteran Maurice Odumbe in the squad to play the opening three-dayer against Pakistan 'A' at the Nairobi's Simba Union club.

Odumbe is currently the subject of an International Cricket Council (ICC) tribunal hearing into allegations of receiving money from a Indian bookmaker.

"He will definitely play for us this weekend," Moles said at the team's training ground.

Despite the distraction of his case, Odumbe played a pivotal role in Kenya's victory over Uganda in the ICC Intercontinental Cup last Sunday, taking three wickets on the final day of the three-day game.

Moles said he expected tough opposition from the Pakistani team led by Test player Misbah- Ul-Haq.
