Ireland Women slipped to a four-run loss against Thailand in the second match of their Quadrangular tournament in Holland.

The game was reduced firstly to 14 overs following heavy rain in Deventer, then further to 10 overs after just four balls of the Thailand innings had been bowled - Orla Prendergast slipping twice in her delivery stride.

Thailand went on to score what looked a modest 54 for 4, with Eimear Richardson (1-4) again the pick of the attack, while Lara Maritz (1-13) was the other successful bowler in addition to two run-outs.

The Irish reply spluttered as they lost early wickets to slump to 29 for 5 in the 8th over - Boochatam taking three wickets.

There was a late rally but the Girls in Green had left themselves too much ground to make up, and they finished on 50 for 7.

Thailand now top the group after their win the previous day against Scotland and they will certainly not be the pushover it seemed when the World Cup Qualifying group was announced this week.

Ireland are back in action on Saturday when they face Scotland at 2.30pm.
