Tigresses edge past Thailand

The Bangladesh women’s cricket team beat their Thai counterparts by four wickets in a T20I at the Kampong Cricket Club in Utrecht on Wednesday.

Thailand scored 68 runs for the loss of five wickets in their allotted overs before Bangladesh overcame the target with three balls to spare.

Bangladesh will play a T20 practice match against the Netherlands before taking on Thailand in the second T20I on Monday.

After the completion of their 10-day camp in the Netherlands, the Tigresses will travel to Scotland to participate in the upcoming Women’s World T20 qualifiers, set to begin on August 31.

Eight teams, divided into two groups, will take part in the qualifiers. The winners of the two semifinals will ensure their places at the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020, to be held in the Australian cities of Canberra, Melbourne, Perth, and Sydney from February 21.

In the qualifiers, defending champions Bangladesh have been drafted alongside Scotland, Papua New Guinea and the USA in Group A while Group B consists of Ireland, Thailand, Namibia, and the Netherlands.
