ICC Women's World Twenty20 Qualifier - 1st semi final

Ireland Women v Pakistan Women

Pakistan Women won by 9 wickets (with 35 balls remaining)

Welcome to ESPNcricinfo's ball by ball coverage of this Women's World T20 Qualifier between Ireland and Pakistan from Y.M.C.A. Cricket Club in Dublin. We have reached the semi final stage of the tournament and the winner of this game today will qualify for the World T20 in Bangladesh. The loser will have to try and grap the final qualifying spot in the third place play-off on Wednesday.

It's lovely and sunny here at the moment but we are expecting showers and judging by recent days they may be very heavy. The form guide for this semi final is certainly with Pakistan who won three T20 Internationals against the hosts in the run-up to the tournament.

Unfortunately the outfield is still a bit damp after recent rain and the run ups are an issue. Fortunately as long as it stays dry, we shouldn't have a long delay. The game is due to begin at 10.15
