Scotland makes history, secured spot in Women's T20 World Cup

Scotland's women cricket team has carved its name in history. By defeating Ireland, they have secured their participation in the ICC Women's T20 World Cup for the first time.

In October of the coming year, women's T20 World Cup will be held in two venues in Bangladesh (Mirpur and Sylhet). There, England, Australia, India, Pakistan, South Africa, New Zealand, West Indies, along with the host Bangladesh, will be joined by the teams from the ongoing qualifiers in the United Arab Emirates.

Scotland's women have ensured their place by defeating Ireland in the semifinal. Leading from the front with all-round brilliance was Kathryn Bryce.

 

Bryce took 4 wickets for 8 runs in 4 overs. Rachel Slater took 3 wickets. Abtaha Maqsood claimed 1 wicket. Despite conceding 110 runs and losing 9 wickets in 20 overs, the Irish women couldn't withstand the Scottish challenge.

In response, opener Megan McColl scored 50 off 47 balls, while Bryce, with her unbeaten 35 off 29 balls, guided the team to victory. With 3.4 overs to spare and 8 wickets in hand, the Scottish women claimed victory.

The celebration was all around for the Scottish team. Whether it's a 20-over or 50-over format, this participation in the Women's World Cup marks their debut.

 

Though Ireland missed the opportunity, Sri Lanka and the United Arab Emirates still have a chance. The winner of the clash between these two teams will also board the plane to Bangladesh.
