Scotland Women will be up against Netherlands Women in the 3rd match of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Europe Qualifier at the Desert Springs Cricket Ground in Almeria on September 7. Both teams won their opening game and are in the first two positions.
Scotland Women had played against Italy Women in their last match, where Italy won the toss and elected to bat. It did not prove to be too great a decision as they started decently but lost their track in the middle overs. Batters struggled to find boundaries and even rotate strikes well, and as a result, they could score just 88 runs by the end of the innings. Such a total was never a challenge for Scotland, and they started brilliantly, pushing away any other chances. They won the match emphatically by nine wickets with more than half an inning remaining.
Netherlands Women had squared off against France Women in their last match, where Netherlands won the toss and elected to field. France had a forgettable on the field with the bat as they could neither score runs nor keep their wickets. Only Marie Violleu could play a decent knock of 38 runs, and it helped France reach a total of 83 runs. The Netherlands were fantastic with the bat right from the start, and they were in a hurry as they chased down the total in just eight overs and won the match by eight wickets.
