Thailand thrashed Kuwait to maintain their perfect start ©Thailand Cricket

Hosts Thailand maintained their 100 per cent record with a fourth victory at the International Cricket Council (ICC) Women's Qualifier Asia in Bangkok.

The home side demolished Kuwait by nine wickets at the Asian Institute of Technology Ground after bowling out their opponents for a paltry 38 in the T20 competition.

Kuwait had won the toss and opted to bat but slipped to a fourth straight defeat as Sornnarin Tippoch shone with the ball.

The Thai captain ended with figures of 4-8 before her side chased down the target for the loss of just one wicket after 7.2 overs.

Thailand now top the round-robin tournament in front of United Arab Emirates, who also won for a fourth time today but have played a game more.

The UAE recovered from defeat to Nepal to see off China by 27 runs at the Terdthai Cricket Ground.

After being asked to bat they posted 95-8 with Chamani Seneviratne scoring 32.

China could not get close and were dismissed for 68.

Nepal, beaten by Thailand earlier in the competition, made it three wins from four as they saw off Hong Kong by four wickets at the Asian Institute of Technology Ground.

Hong Kong reached 62-8 after opting to bat with Nary Thapa ending with incredible figures of 6-8.

The Nepalese lost six wickets but got home after 18.3 overs.

Two rounds of fixtures remain at the competition, which offers the top team a place at the 2019 ICC Women's T20 World Cup Qualifier and the 2020 ICC Women's Cricket World Cup Qualifier.

Only Thailand, the UAE and Nepal are now able to top the pile.

Action continues tomorrow.

A pivotal-looking game between the Thais and UAE looms in the last round of matches.
