Ireland's hopes of reaching the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup are over after a four-wicket defeat to Bangladesh in their qualifying match.

Ireland were bowled out for just 85 in the semi-final tie in Dundee as Fahima Khatun's three for 18 did the damage.

Captain Laura Delany and Eimear Richardson offered a degree of resistance as joint-top scorers with 25.

An unbeaten 32 from Sanjida Islam helped Bangladesh to victory with nine balls to spare as Murshida Khatun and Ritu Moni also made double-figure contributions.

Bangladesh will play either Thailand or Papua New Guinea in the final, with the second semi-final due to take place later on Thursday.

Both finalists of the qualifying tournament automatically progress to the World Cup in Australia at the beginning of 2020.
