KATHMANDU, Nov 27: Hong Kong Woman won the toss and invited Nepal to bat first in the third-place playoff match in the ongoing ICC Woman's World T20 Asia Region Qualifiers at Bangkok.

Nepal Woman failed to qualify for the global qualifiers despite defeating China by 50 runs in the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 Qualifying Series Asia Region on Sunday. 

Nepal finished third with six points in the group, failing to grab the top two spots to qualify for the global qualifiers. Thailand and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) got first and second positions with nine and eight points respectively. Hong Kong finished fourth with five points and Malaysia finished fifth with two points. China stayed at the bottom of the table without even registering a single point.

The top two teams advance to the global qualifiers to be held in Netherlands in June next year, where Bangladesh and Ireland along with six other nations will be competing.  The top two teams from the global qualifiers will then join top six ranked teams in the ICC Women’s World T20 that will be held in West Indies in November 2018.
