ICC World Cricket League Championship, 2011-2013/14 / Commentary

10.20am - Good morning and welcome to our live coverage of this crucial World Cup Qualifier ODI between Scotland and Kenya with your host for the day Callum Stewart. We are up here at Mannofield, Aberdeen which is crickets most Northern ODI venue, and the weather is dry, warm but very windy.

Both teams are out warming up as the captains head for the toss. Kenya won the toss and have elected to field. The top two in the league will gain qualification to the World Cup, Scotland sit in third and Kenya fifth and both teams need to win to keep their hopes alive of an automatic spot. Ireland and the Netherlands are currently sitting on top of the table. This is the first of two games, with the second being played on Tuesday.

10.30am - News coming in is that Goudie and Drummond sit out, with Iqbal 12th man for Scotland. Otieno, Allan and SO Ngoche are the three that miss out today for Kenya.

10.40am - The final preparations are being made to the pitch as the Kenyans practice some slip catching. It's very windy out there today, gusting between 20-30mph and this will effect the bowling and make any high catches very difficult.

There's the bell and here come the umpires. Mr. Ramage and Mr. Braithwaite in charge today.
