Player of the match: Sneh Rana
 
Three out of the four semi-finalists of the 2022 Women's Asia Cup have been finalized. The match between Bangladesh and UAE tomorrow will be a deciding factor for the fourth berth, and Thailand will be keeping an eager eye on that. For now, this is Rajarshi, along with Mohul, signing off from our coverage of this match. See you later!
Sneh Rana, Player of The Match: I've enjoyed a lot, after a very long time I've received a Player Of The Match award. I got support from the other bowlers, coach and captain. I keep on doing my stuff, and today I'm here. Confidence is a lot high among the team, and we'll do better in the following few games.
Smriti Mandhana, India captain: Playing a 100 T20Is is a very proud feeling. The girls made it very special, big shoutout to them, this Indian team is a fun team to play with, really happy that I'm sharing my 100th T20I with them. Thailand have actually played really good cricket in this tournament so we were looking forward to come out and play them, things didn't go their way today, but our bowlers were brilliant to restrict them to such a low total, and then the batters did their job. We have our semi-final after two days, so we'll be working hard to come out and play our best cricket.
Let's hear it from the presentation ceremony!

Nauremol Chaiwai, captain of Thailand: This is a good platform for us. We are a little disappointed with this performance. We have to play better than this, as we firmly believe our potential is better than what we did today. I think that training more will help us; we do not have a lot of facilities back home. I believe that if we play more matches against quality sides, we will become more experienced.
Smriti Mandhana walked out to play her 100th T20I today and was felicitated by her teammates prior to the start of the contest. Here's a watch on the same!👇

As comprehensive as they get. India end the game before more than 2 of the Thailand fielders could spread outside the circle. Sabbhineni Meghana and Pooja Vastrakar get some necessary time in the middle today. Shafali Verma, looking to end things in a flash, was the only Indian batswoman to depart, giving the Thailand players something to cheer about. India seal the top spot in the group stage with a mind-boggling net run rate of 3.141. As for Thailand, they still have their chances, they need to depend on UAE to defeat Bangladesh tomorrow.
