EVEN the return of Kim Garth could not see Ireland to victory as they lost their second successive match at the Women's Quadrangular tournament in Deventer yesterday.
IN reply to Scotlandís 105-6, Ireland could reach only 94-7 with the dismissal of Garth for 30 the key.
After Irelandís best player skied one into the covers in the 12th over, they scored only eight in the next four overs and by the time they reached the last over, needed 20 with six wickets left. They lost three more while adding just eight runs.
Eimear Richardson took 3-14 and Lara Maritz 2-14 but for the second day in a row the batting let them down.
Thailand, who restricted Ireland to 50-7 in 10 overs on Friday, beat hosts Netherlands in the other match yesterday for a world record 17th successive T20 victory.
