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.
