UAE, Nepal and Hong Kong advance to semi-finals

Dubai, September 04, 2023 (PPI-OT): Match day four at the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Asia Qualifier saw UAE book their place in the semi-final with a 69-run victory over Bahrain in a rain-hit game after smashing 142 for three in their first innings.

Nepal was the other team from Group A to seal a semi-final berth, chasing down a target of 75 against Bahrain with more than nine overs to spare. They will play the UAE on Wednesday to determine who tops the group and who faces the second-placed team from Group B in the semi-final.

In spite of a comprehensive eight-wicket win against Bhutan, hosts Malaysia are no longer in contention for a semi-final berth.
