Bangladesh booked their place in next year’s tournament in South Africa after defeating Thailand by 11 runs in the semi-finals of the ongoing ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Qualifiers in Abu Dhabi.
On Sunday, the Tigers will most likely face Ireland for bragging rights in the final, with both finalists securing berths for next year’s T20 World Cup.
With four wins from four games, Bangladesh are yet to lose a qualifying match.
Batting first, Bangladesh scored 113 runs for 5 wickets. Murshida Khatun scored 26 off 35 balls, while Rumana Ahmed scored 28 off 24 balls, including two fours and a maximum.
Thailand’s Nattagan Chatham stood out with a 51-ball 64. Despite hitting four fours and clearing the ropes three times, her efforts were in vain.
He was dismissed on the last ball of the innings as Thailand managed just 102 for 6 in 20 overs.
