ICC Women's World Twenty20 Qualifier, 2013 / Commentary

ICC Women's World Twenty20 Qualifier - 10th match, Group A

Netherlands Women v Pakistan Women

Pakistan Women won by 20 runs

Welcome to Anglesea Road, Dublin home of Merrion Cricket Club for this Women's World T20 Qualifier between the Netherlands and Pakistan. Pakistan have won two out of two so far and are in the semi final already while the Netherlands will be hoping to secure their place in the last four today. The sun is shining here at the moment but unfortunately we've had some torrential rain in Dublin over the last few days and the outfield is wet. There will be an inspection at 10.00 a.m. so hopefully we will have some good news then.

Match State: Delay - Wet Outfield

The Umpires have been out and while there is some improvement it's not enough to get the game started. There will be another inspection at 11.00 a.m.

Umpires have been out there again and have seen more improvement but will have another look at 11.30 with a possible start at noon if the pitch continues to dry as it has done.

Some good news at last here as we have confirmation the game will begin at 12.00 and has been shortened to 9 overs a side.
