Team: Nairobi Gymkhana
ODI debut: 18/02/96

The fact that Odoyo has played in two World Cups is an amazing achievement, considering he is still only 24.

He made his debut at the age of 17 against India at the 1996 World Cup.

Odoyo's highest score came against South Africa in 1999 when he made 53, which was followed with a 51 in the next match against India.

He is a very useful paceman as well, taking wickets on a regular basis including three for 25 against Pakistan back in 1996.

Odoyo was a tennis ball-boy before he was introduced to cricket.
