Thailand have secured their place in the final of the ACC East Region T20 tournament after beating Bhutan today.

The match was the second of the day, with Bhutan choosing to bowl first after winning the toss. The home side didn't dominate with the bat as on the first day against Myanmar, and were bowled out for 108 in 19.5 overs. Sittipong Hongsi top scored with 27, whilst Tobden Singye was the pick of the Bhutanese bowlers with 3-7.

Bhutan then struggled in their reply, with only two batsmen able to reach double figures. Vichanath Singh took 4-7, and Ryan Raina took 3-9 as they were bowled out for 64, losing by 44 runs.

Earlier in the day, China took on Myanmar, with the former batting first after the latter won the toss. The Chinese were restricted to 79-9 from their 20 overs, Aung Ko Ko taking 4-17. Myanmar lost six wickets in reply, knocking off the required runs in 13.4 overs.

Today's results mean that Thailand have secured a place in Sunday's final with one game still to come in round robin play. Tomorrow is a rest day, with the tournament resuming on Saturday. Bhutan will take on Myanmar with the winners set to join Thailand in the final. The hosts will take on China in the other match.
