Nairobi:Seamer Ragheb Aga has been named as a stand-in captain to lead a relatively young Kenyan squad in the semi-finals of the International Cricket Council (ICC) Intercontinental Cup against Scotland in Sharjah next week.

Kenyan Cricket Association (KCA) chief selector Harilal Shah said on Thursday they had opted to stick with the same team that played out a draw against Namibia and saved Kenya after the senior players boycotted the qualifier in Nairobi early this month.

He said the 20-year-old Aga, who took two wickets for 17 runs against Pakistan in the ICC Champions Trophy at Edgbaston, England, last month, will replace new national skipper Hitesh Modi, who is due to wed on November 19.

The team will also include three experienced players, Ravindu Shah, Lamech Onyango and Brijal Patel.

Others are Ameet Bhudia, Rajesh Bhudia, Kalpesh Patel, David Okumu, Tanmy Mishra, Malhar Patel, Jadavji Bhimji, Timothy Muange, Abid Janmohammed.

Kenya will play Scotland in one of the semi-finals in the United Arab Emirates on November 16-18, while Canada will take on the hosts United Arab Emirates in the semi-final.

The final will be held on November 21-23.
