Matt Machan's all-round performance of a hundred and three wickets gave Scotland a narrow 12-run win against Kenya to move to third place in the ICC World Cricket League Championship in Aberdeen. After scoring his maiden ODI ton, Machan took three wickets in seven overs to help wrap up Kenya for 230.

Put in to bat, Scotland were given a stable start by Kyle Coetzer, who scored 37 and was joined by Machan in the 10th over. But Nelson Odhiambo, who had taken the first wicket, dismissed Coetzer and No. 4 Calum MacLeod in successive overs to leave Scotland at 68 for 3 in the 18th over. Machan and Preston Mommsen scored briskly from there, putting together 162 runs in 30.1 overs to take them past 200. Machan, who hit nine fours and three sixes, was dismissed for a 111-ball 114 and Mommsen was unbeaten on 63 when Scotland finished at 242 for 4.

Kenya lost their first wicket in the second over to Iain Wardlaw and Irfan Karim (30) and Morris Ouma (57) took their score to 90 before Karim was caught behind off Machan. They lost two more wickets within the next 13 runs but were revived by a 84-run partnership between Rakep Patel and Tanmay Mishra as both struck fifties. But once Patel was caught behind off Machan's offbreak, the next five batsmen managed only 20 runs together. Mishra kept Kenya in the hunt till the end as they needed 37 from the last five overs but he ran out of partners and was the last wicket to fall in the last over off which they required 13 to win. Wardlaw took three more wickets in the end to finish with 4 for 43.
