Scotland keep up the good work

Scotland beat Kenya by seven wickets to complete a 2-0 Twenty20 international series win in Aberdeen.

Opener Calum McLeod's unbeaten 46 ensured the hosts chased down 100 for eight with the relative comfort of nine balls to spare.

Calvin Burnett had earlier taken 3-18 to limit the Kenyans, who had been on the end of a 35-run reverse in yesterday's Twenty20 opener.

The tourists were skittled for just 78 in that encounter and fared little better on this occasion.

Collins Obuya struck 38 not out from 42 balls, but Morris Ouma and Duncan Allan were the only other batsmen to reach double figures.

Burnett was the chief destroyer, although Majid Haq also chipped in with 2-18.

McLeod then batted through the Scotland innings before putting a seal on the contest in emphatic style.

The 24-year-old crashed Ragheb Aga's first two balls in the penultimate over for four and six before swiping into the neighbouring houses at square-leg for another maximum that completed victory.
