ICC Women's WT20Q: UAE beat Netherlands in a super over to clinch 9th place
July 15 (CRICKETNMORE) - The seventh-place play-off saw Netherlands and United Arab Emirates finished in a remarkable tie with a Super Over needed to decide a winner.
A brilliant 79 from Sterre Kalis saw the Netherlands reach a very competitive 146/3 from their 20 overs, her second half-century of the tournament. She was well supported by Denise Hannema who scored 30 not out.
It wasn’t the best start for the UAE as they lost Esha Rohit early but contributions from the top-order allowed them to recover and keep up with the rate. 32 from Chaya Mughal and 37 from Nisha Ali were the best efforts but there were contributions all the way down the order as they managed to sneak a run to tie the match despite two wickets in two balls from Heather Siegers in the 20th over.
The Super Over was also a tight affair as the UAE set the Netherlands seven runs to win but Subha Srinivasan held her nerve to claim both Dutch wickets to claim the win for her team.
Netherlands 146-3, 20 overs (Sterre Kalis 79, Denise Hannema 30 not out; Nisha Ali 1-20)
UAE 146-9, 20 overs (Nisha Ali 37, Chaya Mughal 32; Lisa Klokgeiters 3-34)
