The third and final match of the T20I series between Thailand Women and Zimbabwe Women will be played on Friday, April 28. The Terdthai Cricket Ground in Bangkok will host this contest.
The series is nicely positioned at 1-1 right now and the winner of the third T20I will seal the series.
Zimbabwe won the first T20I to take an early lead in the series. They needed a win in the second game to conclude the series, but the hosts rallied to record a victory of their own and level the series. It was a close contest and Thailand controlled their nerves to end up on the winning side.
Zimbabwe opted to bat first with only Sharne Mayers (29) and Chipo Mugeri (37) reaching double figures as they ended their innings on 103/9. Nattaya Boochatham starred with the ball for Thailand, picking up three wickets.
In response, Nannapat Koncharoenkai was the home team’s top scorer with 39 at the top of the table. The game went down to the wire and Thailand crossed the line with three balls to spare, winning the game by five wickets.
A comprehensive effort from Thailand saw them win the second T20I and force the series to a decider. It will be a test of nerves for players on both sides as the series hangs in the balance. Fans can look forward to a cracking contest on Friday.
