Batting first, the French were bowled out for 24 as the Scottish bowlers wreaked havoc. The French batters couldn't register a double-figure score, as Scotland gained control of the contest early on. 

For the Scots, Megan McColl was the pick of the bowlers with astounding match-figures of 5/3 in her spell of four overs. Abbi Aitken-Drummond also picked up two wickets. 

With a small total to chase, the Scottish women went hell for leather, which led to them losing three wickets. But the target was accomplished after only 2.2 overs, continuing their dominant run in the tournament, winning four matches out of four to top the Europe Qualifier. 

In the other match of the day, Ireland came out on top against the Netherlands in a battle determined who finished behind the Scots. 

Batting first, Ireland posted 111/9, courtesy of the efforts of Eimear Richardson (53) and Gaby Lewis (32). Eva Lynch picked up four wickets for the Dutch, while Iris Zwilling also chipped in with three scalps. 

In the chase, a lack of contribution from the batters, apart from Robine Rijke (32), proved costly as the Netherlands fell short of the total by 24 runs. 

Laura Delany and Cara Murray picked up three wickets apiece for the Irish. With the victory, Ireland finished behind Scotland, accumulating 6 points in four matches.
