Inspiring the girls at our club!
Well done to the Scotland Women's squad and our Ashleigh Building Women's Premier League players Hannah and Lorna for their application in the heat of Abu Dhabi at the ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier tournament.
And to Sue for managing the team and providing the iced tea too. Safe trip home. #FollowScotland
The crucial game, as expected, was the final group game against the professional players of Ireland. A class batting performance by Ireland's opener Gaby Lewis with 66 off 37 balls took the game away from the Scots as they replied with 145 for 8 to the Irish 164 for 3.
Sadly that meant they did not reach the semi-final stage with the winners of that game going to the Women's T20 World Cup in South Africa next year. Ireland and Bangladesh are the countries that have qualified.
