Qualifying for the next Women's T20 World Cup continued today in Abu Dhabi with Scotland picking up their second win of the tournament, whilst Thailand and hosts UAE recorded their first wins.

USA captain Sindhu Sriharsha won the toss in their afternoon session match against Scotland and asked her opponents to bat first. Scotland's captain Kathryn Bryce top scored with an unbeaten 57 as her team made 149-6 from their 20 overs.

Bryce then took a wicket from the first ball of the USA reply and removed the entire top four within her first spell, finishing with 4-17. A persistent partnership of 39 for the eighth wicket came way too late to make a difference and USA were kept to  105-8, losing by 44 runs.

Uganda were put in by Thailand in their evening match and were bundled out for 62 with only three batters reaching double figures. Thailand had little trouble in their run chase, knocking off the required runs in 11.3 overs to win by nine wickets with Natthakan Chantham contributing an unbeaten 34.

Dutch captain Heather Siegers won the toss and chose to bat first in their match against hosts UAE. Robine Rijke top scored for them with 44 as they scored 101-9 from their 20 overs. The home side then chased down their target in rapid fashion, knocking off the runs in 11.5 overs to win by ten wickets. UAE skipper Esha Oza top scored with 66 from only 39 balls.

When play resumes on Wednesday, the afternoon session will see the Netherlands play Zimbabwe and Uganda come up against Sri Lanka for the first time ever. In the evening session there will be another first time match up when Vanuatu take on Ireland, whilst Thailand face off against USA.
