Scotland made 22 for no loss in response to Kenya’s 183 in their ICC World Cricket League Championship match before rain forced the day’s play to be abandoned. Play will resume on Wednesday (July 3), with Scotland chasing 162 more for victory with ten wickets remaining.
 
Put in to bat, Kenya lost wickets at regular intervals and had to rely on Tanmay Mishra’s 59 to post a reasonable total. Mishra walked in at No. 5 after the top three had crashed within the first 11 overs, to lead Kenya’s resistance. He scored at a slow rate, putting on a 38-run stand with Collins Obuya, the captain, as Kenya regained control. 
 
However, the partnership was broken when Rob Taylor, a left-arm medium pacer, sent back Obuya and the dismissal resulted in a flurry of wickets. Kenya still had something to cheer about when Mishra combined with Nelson Odhiambo for the seventh-wicket to put on 44 key runs. But Taylor ran through the tail, returning figures of 3 for 39, to restrict Kenya to 183.
 
Rain then made an appearance during the innings break and never really abated. An attempt at a restart was made, but the day’s play was finally abandoned when the umpires, Gregory Brathwaite and Ian Ramage, opted to bring the reserve day into play.
