Scorecard summary
Kenya270/6(50 overs)
United Arab Emirates205(44.3 overs)

That equals James Ngoche's career best bowling figures in ListA cricket, taking 5/26 for a second time - superb bowling from the off-spinner who kept his head when there was some big hitting going on around him

So, in the end, a comfortable win for Kenya by 65 runs. A brilliant partnership of 121 for the 7th wicket - including 82 in the last 5 overs of the innings - catapulted Kenya to a testing 270 but the UAE batsmen struggled to maintain their challenge despite some lusty blows in the end from the skipper

So that is that for today here on the Nursery Ground at the Ageas Bowl - both sides taking two points from the two games across the last couple of days. Thank you for your company today and I hope you enjoyed the coverage. This is Richard Isaacs signing off

it was just one big hit too many as Tauqir doesn't quite get hold of the shot and finds Nelson O on the long off boundary who takes the catch and ends the innings giving Kenya victory by 65 runs
