Scotland End B2022 Cricket Qualifier in Third

January 24, 2022

Scotland’s hopes of securing the one remaining place in Women’s T20 Cricket at Birmingham 2022 were dashed, as their Commonwealth Games qualifying tournament campaign ended in defeat to Bangladesh in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on Sunday.

Scotland bounced back from an opening defeat by eventual tournament winners Sri Lanka to beat the host nation Malaysia and then made it two wins from three with a victory in a rain-shortened contest over Kenya.

Bangladesh, the pre-tournament favourites, proved too strong in the final match and the nine wicket loss at the Kinrara Oval meant that the Scots finished the event in third place, with two wins from four.

Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, the top two in the table after the round-robin stages, played off for the place at next summer’s Games, with Sri Lanka coming out on top by 22 runs.
