Rakep Patel (Gujarati: રાકેપ પટેલ) (born 12 July 1989) is a Kenyan international cricketer and current limited over captain for Kenya. A product of the Nairobi Gymkhana Club, he is primarily a batsman who plays right-handed, but also occasionally bowls off spin.[1]

Domestic career[edit]

He made his lone performance for the Kenya Select team in their inaugural season, and found himself called up to the national squad for their tour of Europe, including a tour of the Netherlands and the 2009 ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier.

He has the joint record along with Dawid Malan for scoring the highest ever T20 score when batting at number 6 position (103).[2]
