The International Cricket Council (ICC) has confirmed that a series of three matches between Kenya and Namibia have been postponed.

The two sides were due to play an ICC Intercontinental Cup match and then two one-day games in Nairobi in June.

However, all three matches have been postponed until September due to security issues in Kenya and Nairobi in particular.

"Due to delays related to the ongoing and changing security assessment for Kenya in general-and Nairobi in particular-and the subsequent logistics of successfully staging the match at an alternative venue, the ICC has agreed with both the participating Members that these matches be postponed until September 2012," an ICC statement explained.

Earlier this month, coach Mike Hesson resigned citing security as a decisive factor for leaving ten months into a two-year contract.

In a separate development, former chief executive Tom Sears has told reporters that an unnamed former Kenyan cricketer is under investigation by the ICC for interfering with matches.
