Scotland vs Kenya

Scotland v Kenya: Scots win again in opening T20 game

Scotland's Gordon Drummond

Scotland followed up their World Cup qualifying double over Kenya with a 35-run Twenty20 victory over the Africans in Aberdeen.

The Scots batted first and posted a total of 113-6 before Gordon Goudie took three wickets as Kenya were bowled out for 78.

Opener Richie Berrington (28) and Preston Mommsen (24 not out) both struck two fours as Scotland gradually found a batting rhythm and both Goudie and Moneeb Iqbal hit sixes as Scotland finished off their innings in style.

The Scottish attack quickly saw off the visitors' top order with Kenya left on 29 for five.

Gordon Drummond (2-10) also impressed with the ball and Goudie (3-22) finished off the Kenyans in their 19th over.

The teams meet again for another T20 encounter at the same Mannofield venue on Friday.
