Nairobi:Investigators from the International Cricket Council (ICC) Anti-Corruption and Security Unit will return to Kenya this week to interview 12 team players implicated in the match-fixing scandal involving former team captain Maurice Odumbe, cricket officials said.

"The two officers will arrive in the country on November 30. They have asked us to facilitate the availability of the players for interviews over three days," the Kenya Cricket Association (KCA) general manager Sammy Obingo confirmed on Monday.

Obingo explained that the two officials, Martin Hawkins and Alan Peacock, who were part of a three-man probe team that investigated Odumbe's dealing with an Indian bookmaker and led to a five-ban on the player, would also interview Kenya's former coach Sandip Patil.

The India-born Patil led the team to the semi-finals of the World Cup in South Africa in 2003 but left the country to return home where he has been coaching the India 'A' side.
