Bangladesh beat Ireland in final

Bangladesh won the ICC Women's World T20 Qualifier after defeating Ireland by 25 runs at Kampong.

Bangladesh claimed victory in the final of the ICC Women's World T20 Qualifier in the Netherlands thanks to 46 runs from Ayasha Rahman and a brilliant five wicket-haul from Panna Ghosh. Bangladesh got off to a strong start with the bat, reaching 80 for one in the 12th over before an excellent come back in the second half of their innings from the Irish bowlers saw them restricted to 122 for nine.

The star with the ball from Ireland was Lucy O'Reilly who claimed 4-28 with the ball, but despite her efforts the target was too stiff for her team. Regular wickets meant that the chase was never got going and Ghosh was outstanding with the ball as she claimed 5-16 to seal victory for her team.

Player of the Match, Bangladesh's Pauna Ghosh said: "It was the first time I have got five wickets in an international. We all tried to be successful and we are really excited for the West Indies and going to the ICC Women's World T20."

Player of the Tournament, Ireland's Clare Shillington said: "I was a little bit undercooked in the runs coming into this tournament, but I got a few scores. It is obviously really nice to get the Player of the Tournament, but it is more of a team accolade. We pulled together to get the wins we needed to get into the ICC Women's World T20, it will be shared amongst all 14 of us and not just me."
