Pakistan Women 122-5 (Bismah Maroof 62no) beat
Sri Lanka Women 108-8 by 14 runs
ICC Women's World T20 2014 play-off, Sylhet

Pakistan ended the ICC Women's World Twenty20 2014 in seventh place by beating Sri Lanka by 14 runs in their positional play-off before Bangladesh beat Ireland to finish in ninth.

Bismah Maroof made an unbeaten 62 to help Pakistan post a score of 122 for five and they then restricted Sri Lanka to 108 for eight in reply.

Maroof faced 53 balls and hit seven fours and she was well supported by Sana Mir (20) and Asmavia Iqbal (16) as Nilakshi Silva took two for 14.

Asmavia struck a couple of sixes in her five-ball innings to help Pakistan add vital late runs.

Yasoda Mendis (24) made a good start for Sri Lanka before they collapsed to 37 for five, Anam Amin (2-21) and Sania Khan (3-24) doing much of the damage.

And although Eshani Lokusiriyage made a defiant 37 in 29 balls, her efforts were not enough, and Sri Lanka ended a disappointing campaign in eighth place.

Bangladesh Women 106-7 beat
Ireland Women 89 by 17 runs

Bangladesh condemned Ireland to a winless tournament and finished in ninth place by taking a 17-run win.

Sharmin Akhtar (35), Rumana Ahmed (16) and Ayasha Rahman (12) were the only players to reach double figures for the hosts but they reached a score of 106 for seven that would prove to be enough.

Lucy O'Reilly (3-15), Isobel Joyce (2-17) and Louise McCarthy (2-19) bowled excellently but their batters could not back up their efforts.

They quickly slipped to 14 for three, and then 59 for five before eventually being bowled out for 80.

Panna Ghosh returned three for 25 and Salma Khatun two for eight.
