Thailand v Bangladesh

An unbeaten 71 at the top of the order from Sanjida Islam set-up a 70-run victory over Thailand to give Bangladesh top place in the tournament.

Winning the toss and batting first, the Bangladeshi openers raced to 68 for 0 after ten overs against a Thai bowling attack which had been so successful previously. Eventually, Laomi would dismiss Murshida Khatun for 33 to break the partnership but not before the foundations had been set for a match-winning total of 130 for 5.

Thailand's Sutthiruang, chosen as the Player of the Tournament, struggled with the class of the Bangladesh batters, finishing with figures of 0 for 21 from her three.

Thailand struggled from the off, losing three wickets for just 13 runs inside the powerplay. Nahida Akter and Shaila Sharmin took two wickets each to leave Thailand 60 for 7 at the end of their innings.

Salma Khatun, Bangladesh captain, said: "We are very happy to be heading to Australia for the ICC Women's T20 World Cup in February. Being at the world stage helps us grow the women's game back home in Bangladesh. We hope they can watch and be inspired to play."

The victory means Bangladesh will join Australia, India, New Zealand, and Sri Lanka in Group A and runners-up Thailand will join England, South Africa, West Indies and Pakistan in Group B.

Ireland v Papua New Guinea

Ireland finished third thanks to an 8-wicket victory over Papua New Guinea at Forthill.

When Ireland won the toss and opted to field first, Eimear Richardson starred with the ball to claim figures of 3 for 9 with her right-arm offbreak as Ireland restricted Papua New Guinea to 85 for 8 at the end of their 20 overs.

A quick-fire 35 off 31 from 23-year-old Konio Oala was Papua New Guinea's highest individual innings of the tournament. She hit two fours and three sixes to lift her side from 27 for 3 after ten overs. Kim Garth (2 for 15) backed up Richardson's spell to ensure that no other batter reached double figures.

On a pitch that has seen low scores across the tournament, Ireland made light work of their run chase with 29 from Kim Garth taking Ireland to 68 for 2 after 10 overs.

The Papua New Guinea bowling failed to threaten as they gave away 18 extras to ensure Ireland were never troubled.

Scotland v Netherlands

Netherlands experienced a brilliant Bryce masterclass as sisters Sarah (65 off 48) and Kathryn (73* off 50) put on a 119-run stand for the second wicket to help their side post 167, the highest total of the tournament, and defeat Netherlands by 70 runs at Arbroath to finish fifth in the competition.

Kathryn Bryce's knock, the highest of the tournament, rounded off an excellent campaign for the Scotland captain who finished leading run-scorer with 168 runs from four innings at an average of 84.

Losing Lorna Jack early on for five, Sarah and Kathryn Bryce hit 17 fours between them as they joined forces in the middle in the third over.

Heather Siegers (2 for 22) was the only bowler to concede less than seven an over as the Dutch had no answer to the incredible display of hitting they were presented with.

In reply, things didn't get any better for the Netherlands. They fell 70 runs short of the total as they were bowled out with two deliveries left despite middle-order resistance from Veringmeier (45) and Rijke (19).

There were three wickets for Abtaha Maqsood and two each for Rachel Hawkins and Katherine Fraser, whilst Sarah Bryce continued to make her mark with the gloves as well as the bat, affecting one run-out, taking four stumpings and one catch to take home the Player of the Match award.

USA v Namibia

USA bagged their first win of the Qualifier with a 6-wicket win over Namibia with seven balls remaining at Arbroath in the 7th-8th Place match.

As has previously happened with Namibia this tournament, they got off to a nightmare start losing their first wicket (van der Merwe run-out for 0) without a run on the board. A 44-run stand for the third wicket provided them with hope of building a defendable total to claim their first win, but Akshatha Rao came back in the 10th over to remove Yasmeen Khan for 16 and induce a collapse of 5-34.

With 84 for 7 on the board from Namibia, USA would have fancied their chance to chase 85 and bag their first win of the tournament. 33 from 54 balls from Nadia Gruny who posted the USA's first T20i half-century with 53* against Netherlands saw USA get off to a good start.

By the time Gruny was dismissed at the end of the 15th over with 68 for 3 on the board, USA needed 17 runs from 30 balls. Yasmeen Khan conceded just three runs from the sixteenth and eighteenth overs to cause a few nerves in the USA camp and, with six runs required from 12 balls, a run-out on the first ball saw the back of Bhaskar for 15 to offer a twist in the tale. However, Kodali and Chandhrasekar saw USA home.
