Ireland women will take on PNG women for the 3rd place game. Both the teams have fared well so far in the tournament. Losing their respective semi-finals meant going down at the penultimate stage and not getting a chance to qualify for the main event. Ireland who was considered to be one of the teams who would qualify for the main event will now have to eventually fight for the 3rd place.

PNG women’s team would be proud of their performance in the group stages and would be looking forward to making nice use of this opportunity against a good Ireland team. Sibona Jimmy has taken 8 wickets in 4 games for PNG and has been their Standout bowler.

In the previous encounters between these two teams, Ireland won the game by 27 runs while defending a target of 113 runs.
