The Lady Cricket Cranes finished 6th at the World T20 Qualifiers in Netherlands.

They faced familiar foe Thailand – in the 5th and 6th placement game, a side they had beaten in the group stages but this time round, they fell short by 34 runs.

The Asian champions won the toss and elected bat 1st, scoring 113 for seven in their 20 overs.

In the chase, the C Sutthiruang bowled a dream opening spell of 4 overs for only 7 runs to deflate the Lady Cricket Cranes chase.

The African champions could only manage 79 for the loss of 8 wickets falling short by 34 runs.

Stephanie Nampiima (29) was lone ranger and got some support from vice captain Janet Mbabazi (14) and Franklyn Najjumba (14) but wasn’t enough for the African Champions.

Despite the loss the African Champions finish ahead of UAE and hosts Netherlands to finish 6th on their 1st time at the global qualifiers.

The Lady Cricket Cranes were also crowd favourites for fans the qualifiers and they definitely left a mark at the event.
