Robin Brown has been named as interim coach of Kenya ahead of ICC Intercontinental Cup.

Former Zimbabwe coach Robin Brown has been temporarily put in charge of Kenya ahead of this month s ICC Intercontinental Cup and two one-dayers in Namibia.

The coaching post has been vacant since Mike Hesson, currently in charge of the New Zealand team, quit in May. That month Brown, who played seven ODIs for Zimbabwe in the 80s, was appointed Kenya s head of cricket development.

The matches against Namibia were supposed to be played in Nairobi but were shifted to Windhoek due to security concerns. Brown said there needed to be more team unity for Kenya s results to improve.

Kenya are near the bottom of the table in both the Intercontinental Cup and the ICC World Cricket League Championship.

The four-day ICC Intercontinental match will take place at Windhoek s United Cricket Club from September 29 to October 2, followed by the two limited-overs on October 4 and 6.
