Lockhart Guides Scotland To Victory Over Kenya
Scotland maintained their good start to the 2009/10 ICC Intercontinental Cup by beating Kenya by eight wickets in Nairobi, Doug Lockhart scoring an unbeaten half-century as they comfortably reached 110 for two.
They had dominated the match since bowling their hosts out for 91 on the opening day when Gordon Drummond and Richie Berrington took three wickets apiece. Berrington then went on to score 80 and Qasim Sheikh 108 as Scotland scored 306 in their first innings to pull clear.
Kenya rallied, Maurice Ouma's 130 in 209 balls steering them to 323 but Dewald Nel's haul of five for 107 and Majid Haq's three for 46 ensured that they were set a modest 109 to win.
Although they lost Sheikh for a duck, Lockhart's unbeaten 51 and Kyle Coetzer's 34 saw them past the post.
The win puts them top of the table, six points ahead of Afghanistan, who beat Ireland by seven wickets in their latest match.
Standings: Scotland 49, Afghanistan 43, Zimbabwe XI, Kenya 23, Netherlands 15, Ireland 12, Canada 3
