Ireland beat Netherlands by 19 runs
T20, Dundee, 1 September 2019

Ireland claimed a spot in the semi-final stages of the tournament thanks to a 19-run win over Netherlands at Dundee to escape from their group alongside Thailand.

Kim Garth (39) and Laura Delany (28) provided the bulk of the runs for the Irish as the pair recovered from the early loss of Gaby Lewis, Orla Prendergast and Mary Waldron to put 120 for 6 on the board – de Lange doing the work with the ball for Netherlands with 2 for 28.

Netherlands were spirited in reply with 46 at the top of the order from Sterre Kalis and 28 from Veringmeir at number four with 28 runs, but would eventually fall 19 runs short to finish 101 for 5 from their 20.

Eimear Richardson and Laura Delany bagged two wickets each with 2 for 18 and 2 for 17 respectively to help their side to a semi-final spot.
