MATCH OVER
Bangladesh are the ICC World T20 Qualifier Champions! They beat Ireland in the finals by 25 runs. An unbeaten run in the entire competition as Bangladesh add another championship to their record after a historic Asia Cup victory in less than 40 days. They have been truly sensational with both bat and especially the ball. Ireland meanwhile came into the finals unbeaten but couldn't take the pressure and eventually succumbed. Both the teams will now face 8 other teams at the ICC World T20 in the West Indies in November.
16th Over
Panna Ghosh doing all the damage here. She has taken the crucial wickets of Richardson and Kavanagh in the over and brought Bangladesh close to a historic victory. 2 wickets to win now.
15th Over
Ireland are staging a comeback. 27 runs in the last three overs and they haven't lost a wicket. Richardson leading the way. FYI, she hasn't had to bat in the entire competition. 42 needed off the last 5.
12th Over
Bangladesh are not allowing Ireland any chance to win this. 3 wickets in the last 2 overs and Ireland have lost 6 wickets in the process. It will only take a humongous effort to now win this one.
10th Over
Ireland finish 51/3 at the halfway mark requiring another 72 to win from the last 10. Lewis and Isobel Joyce doing the work.
8th Over
Lewis and Joyce doing the rescue work for Ireland. Ireland are 43/2 after 8 and things are getting interesting.
6th Over
The sixth over doesn't go well for the Irish women. Panna Ghosh cleans up Clare Shillington on 14 and then skipper Laura Delany on a duck. It is time Lewis and Isobel start the rescue work for Ireland.
4th Over
2 fours in that over for Lewis and Ireland are slowly moving ahead. 18/1 after 4.
2.2
Alam strikes and it's Cecelia Joyce who has to depart. Easy catch for Fahima Khatun at backward point. Early merry for Bangladesh.
2nd Over
Shillington and Cecelia Joyce start for Ireland. Alam and Salma Khatun with an over each. Ireland 7/0 after 2.
Innings Break
Bangladesh finish their innings putting up a total of 122/9 on the board. The Irish would feel content restricting the Bangladeshis to such a score. Lucy O'Reilly is the leading wicket-taker for Ireland with 4 wickets to her name. The track was good, this was the same where the Bryce sisters won a 10 wicket game just before an hour. Ireland will need 123 runs to win the qualifiers against a tough Bangladeshi bowling line-up. Join us for the chase in 15 minutes.
18th Over
What a start it was for Bangladesh and what an end it is turning out to be. A score of 150 was definitely expected the way they started. But the Irish bowlers have bowled pretty well.
15th Over
Looks like the Irish have silenced the Tigress. The last two overs have yielded just 5 runs and an important wicket of Rumana Ahmed. Things getting interesting as we head to the last 5 overs of Bangladesh innings.
13th Over
You just cannot keep O'Reilly out of the game. Not with the ball this time but she is very active on the field. Islam has to go for a duck.
12.3
Ayasha Rahman's run with the bat in the finals comes to an end as she gets cleaned up by the veteran Ciara Metcalfe. Experience surely comes into play when you're struggling.
12th Over
The partnership between Fargana Hoque and Ayasha Rahman is 52 and the former loses her wicket at the last ball of the 12th Over. Lucy O'Reilly picks her 2nd wicket of the day as she cleans up Hoque.
10th Over
Bangladesh batters are not leaving a chance to win especially Rahman. After the initial wicket of Shamima, Hoque and Rahman have a partnership of 36 runs with the score touching 64/1 at the halfway mark.
6th Over
The powerplay comes to an end and Bangladesh are 36/1. A good start but extremely clever of Delany continuously rotating bowlers not allowing the Bangladeshi batters to settle down.
4th Over
This has not happened with Ireland before in this tournament. 4 overs and 4 different bowlers. A new strategy or already on backfoot. The young Lucy O'Reilly also claims her first wicket and Shamima Sultana goes for 16. It's 28/1.
3rd Over
Rahman and Shamima start off really well for Bangladesh. Going at 7 an over. Brilliant start to the finals. 21/0.
Teams
Ireland: Shillington, C Joyce, Lewis, Delany (c), I Joyce, Richardson, Garth, Kavanagh, Waldron (wk), O'Reilly, Metcalfe Bangladesh: Shamima (wk), Rahman, Hoque, Nigar Joty, Ahmed, F Khatun, Islam, Alam, Akter, S Khatun (c), Ghosh
Previous Results
Bangladesh have a 4-3 head to head record against Ireland and recently defeated them 2-1 in a T20I series last month. But in the last World T20 Qualifiers, Ireland defeated Bangladesh to win the finals.   Equations are set! Both sides are unbeaten in the tournament so far, so it's time to witness one hell of a action as see who wins the trophy!   Meanwhile, both the teams have already booked their spot at the ICC World T20 to be held later this year.
Toss
Ireland have won the toss and elected to field first in the finals.
