New Zealand cruise to victory by nine wickets. Their bowlers set it up by dismissing Kenya for 73 and then it was a matter of time before New Zealand chased down the target. They did it with 12.2 overs to spare, a massive margin in the Twenty20 format. Mark Gillespie is the Man of the Match for his superb figures of 4 for 7.

Well that's one game down, we've got two more to go. Stay tuned for Pakistan v Scotland at Kingsmead. That match begins at 2.00 pm. Cheers.
