Ireland beat Scotland to make it two wins from two at the Women's World Twenty20 Qualifier in the Netherlands.

Sarah Bryce made 49 not out as the Scots set a total of 98-2 in Amstelveen.

Ireland scored at a brisker rate, reaching 90 before losing Clare Shillington for 47 in the 15th over.

Fellow opener Cecelia Joyce finished on 35 not out as a comfortable nine-wicket victory was wrapped up on 99-1 with 26 balls to spare.

Goup B leaders Ireland next meet Uganda, who were brushed aside by Scotland on Saturday but then kept alive slim hopes of progression with a four-wicket win over Thailand.

Scotland, bidding to reach the final stages of an ICC global tournament for the first time, take on the Thais on Tuesday knowing a win would take them into the last four of the competition.

Both Qualifier finalists will go on to play in the World Twenty20 in West Indies in November.
