 Ireland Women complete comprehensive win over Uganda to top Group and move to Semi-Finals of World T20 Qualifier

Ciara Metcalfe, Player of the Match, was asked after the game how she felt looking for that elusive 100th wicket:

“At the start of my career we were only playing about three games a summer, but the games have upped over recent years, so it’s taken a long time to get to 100 wickets. But it’s a really special occasion, and it eases us into the semi-finals of this tournament.”

“It [the game] went well today. With regards to the 100th wicket I felt it was never going to come and I had to just concentrate on doing my best with the ball. You get caught up, it’s like someone on 99, you get caught up in that moment instead of doing what you need to do. But the wicket was good for me, I got some turn and I got some wickets - so it worked out well.”

“[In terms of the tournament itself] It’s what we’re working towards, it’s what we’ve come here to do. We’re taking each game one at a time, now we’re in the semi-final ready and we’re prepared.”
