The United Arab Emirates and hosts Thailand - who will meet on the final day of the tournament - both remain unbeaten after today's matches in the Asian Women's Qualifier in Bangkok.

Both teams were in action in the morning session, with the UAE taking on Malaysia at the Terdthai ground. UAE captain Humaira Tasneem won the toss and chose to bat first. Esha Rohit was dismissed cheaply early on, but a 71 run second wicket partnership between Chaya Mughal and Kavisha Egodage set the stage for the UAE innings.

Egodage was out in the 14th over having top scored with 44, whilst Mughal was out for 30 shortly afterwards. Chamani Seneviratna continued her series of useful contributions with 33 in the final UAE total of 125-6.

Seneviratna also did well with the ball, taking three wickets for just five runs, but the most remarkable bowling performance came from Esha Rohit, who kept wicket until the 12th over when she gave the gloves to Chaya Mughal. Rohit then bowled the 13th over and took a triple wicket maiden to finish off the Malaysian innings. They had scored just 39 and lost by 86 runs. Only the openers reached double figures.

After two days rest, Thailand resumed this morning at the AIT ground, also batting first after winning the toss. The hosts put on 125-6 from their 20 overs, Chanida Sutthiruang top scoring with 35. Only two of Nepal's line-up reached double figures, Indu Barma top-scoring with 29, as they were kept to 67-8 from their 20 overs, losing by 57 runs.

In the afternoon, China had a straightforward win over Kuwait at the AIT Ground. Put into bat, Kuwait could only manage 59-9 from their 20 overs. China then knocked off the required runs in 11.3 overs, losing just one wicket in the process.

Kuwait get the chance for a break from their heavy defeats as it's their turn for a day-off tomorrow. The UAE will look to make it four wins from four when they take on Nepal, whilst Thailand will look to continue their unbeaten run in their match against Hong Kong. China will play Malaysia in the day's other match.
