In a historic move, the UAE women's cricket team has advanced to the semi-finals of the Women’s T20 World Cup qualifiers, marking a significant milestone in their journey towards international recognition. The team, which made their debut in July 2007 at the Asian Cricket Council's Women's Tournament, has never competed at the senior level World Cup before. Led by Esha Oza, the UAE team is set to face Sri Lanka in a crucial semi-final clash at the Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Sunday, May 5.

Their path to the semi-finals was sealed with a resounding 70-run victory over Vanuatu on the fifth day of intense qualifying matches. This victory not only boosted their confidence but also significantly improved their net run rate, propelling them into contention for a spot in the semi-finals. The UAE's progress was further cemented by Ireland's victory over the Netherlands, which ensured the hosts secured the final qualifying slot at the end of the group stage.
