Ragheb Gul Aga (born 10 July 1984) is a Kenyan cricketer, who played as an all-rounder for Kenya in ODIs and T20Is and for Sussex in English domestic cricket. He became Kenya's third captain in two months in November 2004 when he captained the team at the Intercontinental Cup Finals in place of Hitesh Modi.

County career[edit]

In 2008, having acquired a British passport, Aga signed a one-year deal to play County cricket for Sussex, having played List A cricket for the county during the 2007 season. He was, however, surprisingly recalled to the Kenya side in 2008.[1] Aga spent a further two seasons at Sussex, finally being released by the county at the end of the 2010 season.[2]

Records[edit]

Aga was the first batsman to score a T20I half-century when batting at number 8 (or lower), when he scored 52 not out against Scotland on 13 November 2013. This was the highest score at this position until it was exceeded by Simi Singh in 2018.[3]
