When and where:
ICC Women’s World T20 Qualifiers kick-start on Saturday (July 07) with Ireland taking on Thailand at Sportpark Maarschalkerweerd, Utrecht in the first clash. Both the teams have pulled out the last ball win in their last encounters respectively and are excited about the qualifiers.
Ireland Women, who have plenty of quality players in the likes of skipper Laura Delany, all-rounder Kim Garth and Joyce sisters- Isobel and Cecelia Joyce, defeated Bangladesh in a close last-ball encounter in the final game of 3 match series held back on Sunday (July 01). Although, they lost the series by 2-1, defeating Asia Cup winners in the final game would have definitely boosted their confidence.
Thailand women would be boosted by their last-ball win over a full member- Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup. Batting first, Sri Lanka Women posted 104-10 in the allotted overs. In response, Thailand Women managed to chase it off the last ball with 4 wickets remaining. Naruemol Chaiwai, the opener, and Wongpaka Liengprasert, the off-spinner, were the key players of the match. Chaiwai scored 43 of 56 balls and Liengprasert took 5-12 in 4 overs.
So, with the kind of performances in the back, it is expected to be a close encounter. The match will begin at 03:30 PM IST.
