ICC World Cricket League Championship, 2011-2013/14 - 42nd match

Scotland v Kenya

Scotland won by 4 wickets (with 8 balls remaining) (D/L method)

10.40am - Both teams are getting official photographs taken by the ICC, and then we will be underway. The umpires are leading them out to the middle.

10.20am - Scotland have won the toss and will bowl. The Scotland team is unchanged from Sunday.

KJ Coetzer*, FRJ Coleman, MW Machan, CS MacLeod, PL Mommsen, RD Berrington, I Wardlaw, RM Haq, D Murphy†, RML Taylor, NM Carter.

10.10am - Kenyan team news. Allan replaced Karim and the Ngoche brothers swap over.

RG Aga, DI Allan, T Mishra, SO Ngoche, AA Obanda, CO Obuya*, NM Odhiambo, NN Odhiambo, MA Ouma†, RR Patel, HA Varaiya.

It's a very busy day for international cricket. As well as live action here in Aberdeen you have got India v Sri Lanka, England XI v Essex, Worcs v Australians and Ireland v Netherlands. Get your tabs out.

10.05am - The Scottish team have now taken to a game of volleyball over one of the practice nets as their warm-up. Traditionally it was football, but after a couple of players got injured it was time to change. The Kenyans have just arrived and are out stretching and limbering up, we will bring you news of the teams and the toss shortly.

10.00am - Good morning folks and welcome to Mannofield, Aberdeen for this 2nd ODI and World Cup Qualifier between Scotland and Kenya with your host and commentator for today Callum Stewart.

Scotland won by 12 runs on Sunday to put themselves one step closer to the automatic spots in a game where the momentum shifted between both teams several times. Scotland hit 242 batting first; a century from Matt Machan and a half from Mommsen rescued the Scottish total when they had an early collapse. Kenya's reply had three of their own half-centuries, but ultimately fell just short.

It's nice and sunny just now in Aberdeen. 17C, little wind and not much cloud. However all the forecasts point to some heavy rain moving in later this afternoon. Tomorrow is a reserve day, so if we don't get a result today we will come back and do it all again tomorrow.
