Scotland Women and Ireland Women will clash off in the penultimate game of the Women’s T20I Quadrangular Series. Scotland has a good chance of finishing on the top of the points table if they can get better of Ireland by a big margin or hope Thailand later loses to the Netherlands. Even if they finish 2nd, the Scottish team can be proud of their efforts in this competition.
The Sarah Bryce-led squad won four out of five matches they played so far. One of those wins came against Thailand just after they broke the record of the longest winning streak in T20Is. On the other hand, Ireland Women’s performances have been rather disappointing. They could win only one game in total while another one got washed out after they posted their highest T20I total of 213/4.
The 11th match of the 2019 Women’s T20I Quadrangular Series (in the Netherlands) between Scotland Women and Ireland Women will be hosted by the Sportpark Het Schootsveld in Deventer.
The match starts at 11:00 AM local time (9:00 AM GMT) (2:30 PM IST).
Last five completed T20I matches:
Scotland Women: W, W, W, W, L.
Ireland Women: L, W, L, L, W.
The weather forecast suggested less than 10% of rain chances until the evening. This could mean a full 20-over game in the morning under cloudy conditions.
Once again, the team batting first might have to settle down to a low score in the morning match. The chasing teams won four out of five matches which had 11:00 AM in this tournament.
