China were looking for an historic first international tournament win today, but it wasn't to be as hosts Thailand triumphed on the final day of the ACC Women's Premier League.
Batting first after losing the toss, China started their innings with an opening partnership of 39 between Sun Mengyao and Zhang Mei. That was the sole bright spot of their innings though, as they struggled against the Thai bowling attack.
China were unable to have a partnership in long enough to make any sort of impact, and they were eventually bowled out for 100, losing their six wickets for just 21 runs.
Thailand's reply started with a 33 run opening partnership between Naruemol Chaiwai and Nattakan Chantam. Unlike China, Thailand didn't collapse and Chaiwai was able to put on 41 for the second wicket with Nattaya Boochatham.
The seven wicket win was secured in the 35th over of the run chase, giving Thailand their second ACC Women's tournament win in two years.
These two teams will almost certainly be involved at the cricket tournament at the Asian Games in South Korea later this year. Depending on which full members elect to take part - India and Sri Lanka skipped the tournament last time - they could well find themselves challenging for a medal.
