Pakistan women finished top of the table in the Quadrangular series, with a nine-wicket victory against Ireland women at the Thurstan College Ground in Colombo. The entire tournament has been affected by the weather, and Friday's match was reduced to 23 overs a side. Ireland were put in and were all out for 28 in 22.1 overs. Legspinner Bismah Maroof did the most damage, taking 4 for 7. Pakistan chased the total in 13.3 overs, with Javeria Khan scoring 47 not out.
Sri Lanka women finished second in the table after registering an emphatic eight-wicket win over Netherlands women at the Nondescripts Cricket Club Ground. Sri Lanka chased down a paltry target of 67 in 8.4 overs after bowling the visitors out for 72 in Colombo.
Being asked to bat, the Netherlands line-up managed just two double-digit scores. They were troubled by the spin of Maduri Samuddika and Sandamali Dolawatta, the pair picking up two wickets apiece, but their wrecker-in-chief was left-armer Sherina Ravikumar who finished with 4 for 14 off her 10 overs. The Sri Lanka batsmen then made short work of the chase, stroking 14 boundaries to win with all of 248 balls to spare.
