The Netherlands women's tour of Thailand concluded today with another defeat for the Dutch, who won just one match in the T20I series after being whitewashed in the four match of the ODI series.

The four match T20I series began on Tuesday with the Dutch managing just 89-8 from their 20 overs, with Suleeporn Laomi and Onnicha Kamchomphu both taking three wickets. The home team took 18.4 overs to chase down their target but did so without loss, Nannapat Koncharoenkai and Nattakan Chantam scoring 44 and 41 respectively.

Thailand batted first in Wednesday's second T20I and scored 113-5, Naruemol Chaiwai top scoring with an unbeaten 40. A run a ball 56 by Sterre Kalis helped the visitors secure their first win of the tour, with the winning runs coming from the very last ball as the Netherlands won by five wickets.

After a rest day the series resumed yesterday with the Dutch again struggling to put runs on the board. With the game reduced to a 19 over contest, they were only able to score 73-7. Thailand took until the last over to chase down their target, winning by five wickets with five balls to spare.

The highest total of the T20Is came in today's final round when Thailand batted first and scored 126-8, Naruemol Chaiwai top scoring again with 47. Heather Siegers and Sterre Kalis scored 28 and 39 respectively but no other batter was able to reach double figures as the Dutch were kept to 95-6, losing by 31 runs.

The defeat ends a disappointing tour for the Netherlands who could win only one of their eight matches. The batting, other than Sterre Kalis, left a lot to be desired and the bowling wasn't much better.

For Thailand though it's another example of why they're widely considered to be the top associate in the women's game. The ODI whitewash saw them enter the ODI rankings in eighth place where they set ahead of full members Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Ireland and Zimbabwe as well as the Netherlands, the only other associate on the rankings. It's a discussion for another time but the question should probably be asked how things would be different if the Thailand men's team was ranked this highly.
