Women’s team’s from Thailand, Scotland and Ireland posted convincing wins over their opponents in the opening round of group stage fixtures in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Global Qualifiers in Scotland.
All matches were affected/interrupted by rain on the opening day, and the game between Bangladesh & Papua New Guinea was abandoned without a ball being bowled. The match will be now played on 02nd Sep 2019.
Thailand dominated Netherlands again as has been the case in the past month, even during the 4-nation T20I quadrangular series in Netherlands. Namibia managed to bat through their 20 overs, however, they would have liked to have atleast 25-30 runs more than what they got on board in the end. The target was never enough for Ireland, as they chased it down in their 15th over. Scotland continued their good form in the past couple of months, as USA’s ground fielding resulted in missed opportunities in the field and the batting came under pressure in the rising asking rate, as they lost wickets upfront and never recovered.
Thailand 76/0 in 9 overs (Nattakan Chantam 44 n.o, Naruemol Chaiwai 26 n.o, Iris Zwilling 0/8. Heather Siegers 0/12) beat Netherlands 46/5 in 9 overs (Babette de Leede 20 n.o, Chanida Sutthiruang 3/5, Suleeporn Laomi 1/8, Nattaya Boochatham 1/9) by 30 runs
Namibia 83/9 in 20 overs (Petro Enright 20, Adri van der Merwe 14, Eimear Richardson 2/10, Laura Delany 1/5, Lara Maritz 1/7, Sophie MacMahon 1/11) lost to Ireland 86/3 in 14.3 overs (Mary Waldron 33, Gaby Lewis 26, Kim Garth 22 n.o, Wilka Mwatile 1/12, Sune Wittmann 1/16) by 7 wickets
Scotland 60/3 in 7 overs (Kathryn Bryce 29, Sarah Bryce 12, Claudine Beckford 3/26) beat USA 30/5 in 7 overs (Sindhu Sriharsha 10, Kathryn Bryce 2/6, Katherine Fraser 1/8, Abtaha Maqsood 1/5) by 30 runs
