Bangladesh thrashed Thailand by 70 runs to win the International Cricket Council Women's T20 World Cup global qualifier in Scotland.

Sanjida Islam set a record score for Bangladesh in a women's twenty20 to guide her side to a comprehensive victory at Forfarshire Cricket Club in Dundee.

Bangladesh batted first and posted a tough target of 131 for victory.

Islam was the star of the show for her team as she finished unbeaten on 71, the highest score achieved by a Bangladeshi woman in a twenty20 international.

Bangladesh finished on 130-7, leaving Thailand with a target they never looked like reaching.

Thailand struggled throughout and were restricted to 60-7 from their 20 overs.

Shaila Sharim was the pick of the bowlers as she took 2-9, while Nahida Akter returned figures of 2-17.

Both teams qualified for next year's World Cup in Australia by reaching the final of the tournament.

Ireland ended the competition in third following an eight-wicket win over Papua New Guinea.
