Bangladesh, Zimbabwe, Ireland and Scotland will be competing for the two coveted places in next year’s ICC Women’s World Twenty20 India 2016 when they face off in the semi-finals of the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 Qualifier Thailand 2015 in Bangkok on Thursday.

On Tuesday, Ireland claimed its third victory of the pool stages when it defeated Zimbabwe by seven wickets at Terdthai Cricket Ground, but both sides qualified for the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 Qualifier semi-final from Group B. Ireland will play host to European rivals Scotland, while Zimbabwe will now face Bangladesh who topped Group A.
 
In the other Group B game at Asian Institute of Technology Ground, China edged Netherlands in a close contest to register its first win of the tournament, their first ever in an ICC Global Event and will face host Thailand in the Shield semi final on Thursday, with Papua New Guinea set to face the Netherlands in the other tie.
 


 
The Trophy finalists will be aiming to join reigning champion Australia, England, India, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka and the West Indies in the event proper, which will be staged alongside the men’s event from 11 March to 3 April 2016.
