• The Report by Callum Stewart in Aberdeen

Scotland boost World Cup hopes

Scotland improved their chances of World Cup qualification by defeating Kenya on Duckworth-Lewis

Comms: Callum Stewart
Scorecard summary
Kenya183/10(46.3 overs)
Scotland139/6(33.4 overs)

So there we go. A very strange match with the rain interruptions that Scotland must have though was all over a couple of hours ago before being asked to knock off a few more runs. A few nervy moments but they got there in the end, and Kenya will be proud of the effort they put in the field to give Scotland a scare chasing such a low total.

Please join me again tomorrow at 2pm for a T20 between the sides, but for now from Callum Stewart in Aberdeen it's good afternoon.
