Scotland Women are the 2nd best side in the ongoing Women’s Quadrangular T20I series in the Netherlands. The Scottish Women won three out of four matches but have got a poor NRR. In their first game of the tournament, Scotland lost by 74 runs against Thailand Women while chasing a target of 130. However, they bounced back strongly only to defeat Thailand in the reverse fixture.

Scotland Women will now face the Netherlands who are the only team to not win a game in this tournament. They earned only one point after four matches. The lone point came through the washout in the game against Ireland on Monday.
