Major Takeaways

This series was a low-scorer with scores of 87–9 vs 76/10, 137/4 vs 76/10, 134/8 vs 93/10, & 99/7 vs 101/4 in the 20-over contest.

Scotland

- The trio of Kathryn Bryce (3.3–0–8–2), Katherine Fraser (4–0–15–2), & Katie McGill (4–0–18–3) starred in Scotland’s only win as Ireland failed to chase even 88 runs.
- Unfortunately, Kathryn Bryce was the lone fighter in the series with scores of 12 (26), 17 (23), 45* (42) & 22 (21) to go along with 5 wickets.

Ireland

- Leah Paul was the standout performer of the series, with figures of 4/16, 2/12, and 3/12. Scotland never got going against the left-arm spinner.
- Gaby Lewis was the only Irish player who had a decent outing with the bat. 47 (39) in the 2nd ODI & 49 (40) in the fourth ODI were match winning knocks. Decent support from Laura Delany & Shauna Kavanaugh as well.
- Orla Prendergast set the tone for the Irish bowlers in each of the games with a miserly economy rate of 4.15 to go along with six wickets.

Where Do They Go Here From Now?
