After a 98 from Kim Garth set Ireland Women to 218 for seven, the bowlers managed to keep Thailand Women in check, restricting them to 172 for nine in the chase during the 16th match of ICC Women's World Cup Qualifier in Colombo.

Ireland won the toss and elected to bat first. After the early loss of Shauna Kavanagh (9), Cecilia Joyce (35), Garth (98) and Laura Delay (50) consolidated the innings to 190 for three in 47 overs.

In the last three overs, even though Ireland lost four wickets, they scored 28 runs to take the total to 218 for seven in the 50 overs.

Thailand lost both their openers early after which Nattaya Boochatham (44) and Sornarin Tippoch (42) tried to keep Thailand in the chase, Lucy O'Reilly (3-28) picked three wickets to dent their hopes as they fell short of the target by 47 runs.

Ireland are placed third in Group A after the win while Thailand languish at the bottom of the table.
