Tigresses clinch title in WT20 qualifiers



Bangladesh women cricket team defeated Ireland by 25 runs in the final in the Netherlands’s Utrecht on Saturday and made a history by becoming champions of the ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier tournament.

Put into bat first, Ayasha Rahman struck 46 off 42 deliveries to help Bangladesh score 122-9 runs before Panna Ghosh claimed 5-16 to bowl the opposition out for 97 runs in 18.4 overs.

Bangladesh earlier defeated Scotland by 49 runs in the second semi-final match on Thursday, reports bdnews24.com.

The victory ensured their presence in the ICC Women’s World T20, scheduled to be held in West Indies in November, and set up a mouth-watering WT20Q final against Ireland, who beat Papua New Guinea.

Bangladesh, who claimed a shock victory at the Women's T20 Asia Cup last month before winning a T20I series in Ireland, have continued their impressive recent form in this tournament.
