In the first Semi final Pakistan got head to head against the home team, the Pakistani Women team had a very impressive record against the team Ireland especially in this summer where they have defeated them in the ODI’s as well as in the T20 formats. Left-arm spinner Sadia Yousuf’s career-best figures of 4 for 9 punched Pakistan‘s ticket to the Women’s World Twenty20 in Bangladesh after a nine-wicket win over Ireland in the first semi-final of the Qualifiers.
Pakistan put Ireland in after a wet outfield caused a delayed start, and Captain Isobel Joyce lost her middle stump on the fourth ball of the match. A run-out got rid of tournament top-scorer Clare Shillington before Yousuf plundered four wickets in her first three overs to leave Ireland reeling at 32 for 6 after 13 overs. She was on a hat-trick after having both Laura Delany and Elena Tice stumped off the last two balls of the 13th over. She induced Kim Garth’s edge off her next ball, but it landed safely. Garth made an unbeaten 38 but the rest of the line-up could not reach double figures as Ireland were dismissed for 65.
The openers took Pakistan almost halfway to victory before Garth removed Nahida Khan for 13, but her partner Javeria Khan and Nain Abidi completed the formalities with 35 balls to spare, though heavy rain did interrupt play with Pakistan six runs from victory.
In the second Semi final it was Sri Lanka who took over Netherlands for the place in the final as now it will be Pakistan vs Sri Lanka women live world t20 qualifier final score 31 July 2013. The second semi final was also being disturbed by rain but still Sri Lanka controlled a rain-marred game to become the second team to go through to the T20 finals in Bangladesh, after Netherlands fell short of a revised target of 85 in 9 overs.
Having been invited to bat, Sri Lanka made a bright start, scoring at over 10 before Chamari Atapattu was run-out in the third over. Yasoda Mendis and Deepika Rasangika consolidated with a 52-run partnership for the second wicket. Mendis fell in the 10th over but Rasangika’s 47 off 50 balls, with four fours ensured Sri Lanka were on course for a healthy total. Two quick wickets brought Eshani Kaushalya to the crease, who struck her third ball for six and kept going. Her 33 off 16 balls pushed Sri Lanka to 152 for 6 in 19 overs when rain arrived.
Netherlands’ openers began steadily, but Veringmeier’s fall paved way for Heather Siegers’ wicket six and put them at 39 for 2 in the sixth over, 14 behind the Duckworkth-Lewis par score. They could only manage 9 of the 46 needed in the last 18 balls to give Sri Lanka a comfortable victory.
