Scotland beat Kenya by 14 runs in an interesting encounter in the ongoing ICC World Cup Twenty20 Qualifiers at the Global Cricket Academy in Dubai.
Scotland posted a high score of 178 for the loss of 7 wickets batting first. Calum MacLeod (55) and Kyle Coetzer (46) were the corner stone on which the Scottish built their innings on, the pair were involved in a third-wicket partnership of 83 coming off just nine overs to take the game away from the Africans.
Kenya began their reply in bright fashion with an opening stand of 55 between youngsters Duncan Allan and the explosive Alex Obanda who has been in good nick recently with a well worked 35 from just 17 deliveries including a six and 6 fours.
The East Africans however wasted their chance as they allowed the Europeans back into the encounter during a mini-middle order lapse that saw Tanmay Mishra, Ragheb Aga, Nehemiah Odhiambo and David Obuya just score 25 runs between them to hand the game in favour of the Scottish. Gordon Drummond was the pick of the bowlers with 3 for 20. Kenya play Ireland in their next encounter.
