Bangladesh qualify for Women's World Cup T20 beating Scotland

Bangladesh Women beat Scotland Women by 49 runs in the semi-final of the Women's World T20 Qualifier 2018 in Amstelveen on Thursday, 12 July. The victory ensured their presence in the ICC Women’s World T20 and set up a mouth-watering WT20Q final against Ireland, who beat Papua New Guinea in today’s earlier semi-final. Bangladesh, who claimed a shock victory at the Women's T20 Asia Cup last month before winning a T20 series in Ireland, have continued their impressive recent form in this tournament, cruising through Group A with two eight-wicket victories and one seven-wicket win. Favourites Bangladesh posted 125 after being sent in to bat first, and bowled out Scotland for 76 at Amstelveen in the Netherlands on Thursday. It was the first time Bangladesh batted first in the qualifier tournament, but the batters could not shine like previous matches. They, however, did not face much difficulty in winning thanks to the bowlers. Bangladesh played the World T20 tournament as the hosts in 2014. They had to qualify for the tournament in the next round in 2016, but were defeated by Ireland in the final of the qualifier tournament. The two nations will play against each other in the final match at Uttrecht on Saturday. West Indies will host the ICC World Cup T20 in November.
