4.30pm - Kenya have won the toss and will bat. Team news too.

4.00pm - Good afternoon and welcome to this second T20 International between Scotland and Kenya at a glorious Mannofield, Aberdeen. The sun is shining and we're expecting a bumper crowd tonight for this match, with free entry for those making it down to the ground.

For those who can't, it will be Callum Stewart giving you ball-by-ball commentary after yesterdays low scoring affair. Scotland posted what looked a below par score of 113, before bowling over Kenya for just 78. Both teams bowled and fielded well, but the pitch was a factor as it had been used for both ODIs previously. We're on a new pitch today, so this should make things a little different for the batsmen.
