Bangladesh women's cricket team will take on Scotland in the first semifinal of the ICC Women's World T20 Qualifier at the VRA Cricket Ground in Amstelveen today.
Salma Khatun and her troops were clinical in the qualifying round to reach the semifinal. If they win a spot in the final today, it will ensure the Tigresses' participation in the ICC World T20 in West Indies in December.
Their performances in the qualifying tournament carries on the purple patch they had embarked upon by winning the T20 Asia Cup in Malaysia last month. They then beat Ireland 2-1 in Ireland.
They won all their three group matches, not allowing a single opponent to go past 100. They restricted Papua New Guinea to 84 for six, before skittling out the Netherlands and UAE for 42 and 39 respectively.
