Amy Hunter's 45 ensured Ireland Women go into Sunday's T20 World Cup Qualifiers on a winning note after a 38-run win over PNG in their second warm-up match in UAE.

Hunter made 45 from 37 balls (3 fours, 2 sixes) before retiring. There were also double figure contributions from Shauna Kavanagh and Orla Prendergast who made 17 apiece, while there were also runs too for Eimear Richardson (14) and Gaby Lewis (13) in their total of 142 for 7.

PNG never seriously threatened the total, despite 22's from Jimmy and Arua.

With the ball, there was two wickets for Arlene Kelly (2-18), with the other successful bowlers being Eimear Richardson (1-21) and Cara Murray (1-22) as PNG were restricted to 108 for 5.

Bangladesh are Ireland's opponents in the opening match, followed by group games against USA on Monday and Scotland on Wednesday.

The top two from each group go forward to semi-finals, with the winners of those games qualifying for the T20 World Cup.
