Scotland suffer 10-wicket Twenty20 defeat by Kenya

Obuya was top scorer with 60 not out against Scotland

Scotland suffered a 10-wicket thrashing as Kenya avenged last week's ICC Intercontinental Cup defeat with victory in their Twenty20 match.

The hosts took less than 13 overs to surpass their opponents' 109 for nine in Nairobi.

Kenya openers David Obuya (60 not out) and Steve Tikolo (46no) ran riot at the Gymkhana club ground.

Only Fraser Watts (16), Ryan Watson (13) and Majid Haq (21no) reached double figures for the tourists.

Scotland's score was the same below-par total that almost cost them dear in Sunday's tri-series opener against Uganda before an incredible late fightback ultimately led to a super-over victory.

There was no comeback this time as both teams continued their preparations for next week's ICC World Twenty20 qualifying tournament.

The home side won the toss and put Scotland into bat, a decision that proved wise, with their spinners doing much of the damage.

Scotland's next outing is Wednesday's meeting with Uganda.
