Ireland Women won by 2 runs

Good afternoon and welcome to coverage of Day 5 of the Womens World T20 Qualifiers here in Dublin. My name is Justin Smyth and im going to be bringing you ball by ball coverage of this game at the YMCA ground in the centre of Dublin.

We are going to be watching the 3rd/4th place game between Ireland and the Netherlands. The winner of this game will take the final place in the Womens T20 in Bangladesh in 2014.

There has been alot of rain at the ground already today and there is dark clouds hanging over the ground. So hopefully we will be getting away on time at 2.00pm.

The news from the middle is that we are going to be having an inspection at 1.50pm so we will be having a delayed start here.

1.45pm Forget about the inspection, the rain has returned and all the covers are back on. The start is going to be futher delayed here. I will let you know when or if there is any changes. Match State: Delay - start delayed due to rain

2.25pm There is good news! The rain has stopped and they are taking the covers off. The players are warming up on the field. The Umpire's are out looking at the middle. If we dont get anymore rain then we might get this game going. As soon as i get any further news I will let you know.

Good news the toss is going to be at 2.35pm and as long as there is no more rain then we will be starting the game at 2.50pm. No overs have been lost so far so its still 20 overs each.

The news from the middle is the Netherlands have won the toss and are bowling .

Well we were supposed to start but yes youve guessed it. Here comes the rain again. Covers going back on again. I seem to remember typing this already today at some point.

Match State: Delay - start delayed due to rain

4.00pm We have some bad news in afraid. The rain is still tumbling down so play has been called off for today. So we will come back tomorrow hoping that the weather is going to be better. So please join me then.

1.15pm Good Afternoon and welcome to the T20 game between Itreland and the Netherlands. The rain came down heavily in Dublin in the early hours of the morning and we have been waiting around all day hoping for the ground to dry. There is going to be another inspection at 2.00pm so as soon as i have any news I will let you know. Match State: Delay - due to wet outfield

2.25pm Good news, there is going to be a game today. The groundstaff have been working hard on the ground and we are going to be starting at 2.45pm. The toss is going to be at 2.30pm. Even though we had a toss yesterday but today is a new game so we are going to have another toss.

There is one area on the ground that is still causing an issue. Its been covered over so hopefully we will not have any trouble with it in the game.
