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 three for 18 to limit the Kenyans, who were left empty handed after losing their two World Cup qualifiers.

The tourists had also been on the end of a 35-run reverse in yesterday's Twenty20 opener, when they were skittled for just 78, and fared little better second time round.

Collins Obuya's unbeaten 38, from 42 balls, was supported only by Morris Ouma (19) and Duncan Allan (18) - the only other batsman to reach double figures.

Burnett was the chief destroyer although Majid Haq chipped in with two for 18 from his four overs to ensure an imminently reachable target.

And so it proved as McLeod batted through the innings before putting a seal on the contest in emphatic style in the penultimate over.

The 24-year-old crashed Ragheb Aga's first two balls for a four and a six before sealing the win with another swipe over square leg that landed in the neighbouring houses.

The teams complete their series with a four-day Intercontinental Cup clash which starts in Aberdeen on Sunday.
