Thailand Women’s cricket team had a blast in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in Australia. Though they failed to make it to the knockout stages of the tournament, they thoroughly enjoyed their time down under, having fun on the field and off it, while giving it their everything in every match they have played.
The team finished their journey in the tournament with one point after their match against Pakistan was called off due to rain in Sydney. This was after they had slammed 150/3 in 20 overs, their highest ever T20 score with Nattakan Chantam making 56, Nattaya Boochatham making 44 and two other batters making 20 runs each. It was a once in a lifetime chance to upset Pakistan, only for the rains to interrupt.

Pakistan had defeated West Indies, the 2016 T20 World Champions in their opening match, lost the next two and needed to chase down 150, which would have been a record for them to have any chance of keeping their hopes of semi-final qualification alive. But the game was abandoned before they could face a ball, and the points shared.
India and Australia have already qualified for the semis from Group A, while South Africa and England have done the same from Group B. But South Africa still have a match in hand, against the West Indies, to make a bid to finish on top of the table and avoid taking on red-hot and unbeaten Indian team in the knockout game.
