ICC Media Release
Ireland v Netherlands
Ireland won by 66 runs
Ireland 237 all out (49.4 overs, C Joyce 65, Shillington 58, de Fouw 3-23, Braat 3-39)
Netherlands 171-9 (50 overs, Metcalfe 3-21, H Whelan 3-54)
Ireland claimed third place at the ICC Women's World Cup Qualifier with a 66-run win over the Netherlands.
Cecilia Joyce captured the Player of the Match Award for her excellent 65, while Clare Shillington made a valuable contribution of 58.
The Netherlands started well and at 102-1 looked well set to challenge Ireland's total. But a flurry of wickets, with Ciara Metcalfe and Heather Whelan doing most of their damage, meant the Dutch fell well short of their target.
Caroline De Fouw (Netherlands) and Sana Mir (Pakistan) shared the Player of the Tournament Award. Both were outstanding all week for their sides, with Sana Mir helping her country to qualification for the ICC Women's World Cup in 2009.
Scotland v Zimbabwe
Zimbabwe won by 161 runs
Zimbabwe 236-6 (Rainsford 69, Chibhabha 48*, Mpofu 48)
Scotland 75 all out (Chibhabha 4-16, Marange 3-22)
Zimbabwe took fifth place with a 161-run defeat of Scotland. Batting first Yvonne Rainsford top scored for Zimbabwe with a brilliant 69, with good support from Sinikiwe Mpofu (48) and Julia Chibhabha (48*). And skipper Chibhabha was the bowling star for her side as she claimed figures of 4-16.
Papua New Guinea v Bermuda
Papua New Guinea won by 45 runs
Papua New Guinea 119 all out (28.3 overs, Paytner 4-16)
Bermuda 74 all out (35 overs, Ovasura 4-3, Heogi 4-20)
Papua New Guinea's campaign ended on a winning note when they defeated Bermuda by 45 runs. Despite only making 119 all out with the bat, with Terry Lynn Paytner taking 4-16, PNG would have always fancied their chances of claiming victory.
And although Bermuda were very much in the game at 53-3, a dramatic collapse meant that Linda Mienzer's side returned home without a single win to their name, with Norma Ovasuru's amazing figures of 10-7-3-4 a key factor in PNG's victory.
