Controversial Australia umpire Darrell Hair is to officiate in the one-day international cricket series in Kenya next week, officials said on Saturday.
The 54-year-old is one the ten umpires and referees appointed by the International Cricket Council (ICC) for the triangular series in Mombasa and the World Cricket League in Nairobi between January 30 to February 7.
It will be Hair's first international assignment since being dumped from the ICC elite panel of umpires after Pakistan complained about his role in the historic forfeited fourth Test against England at the Oval in August.
Former Indian pace bowler Javagal Srinath will be the match referee of the Mombasa series, which will involve the hosts Kenya and fellow World Cup finalists Canada and Scotland.
