In April 2018, the International Cricket Council (ICC) granted full international status to Twenty20 women's matches played between member sides from 1 July 2018 onwards. Therefore, all the matches in the qualifier tournament are played as Women's Twenty20 Internationals (WT20Is).[3][4]

Ahead of the final round of group-stage matches, all eight teams still had a chance to qualify for the final of the tournament, and therefore secure a place in the 2018 ICC Women's World Twenty20.[5] After the conclusion of the last group-stage matches, Bangladesh and Papua New Guinea from Group A, along with Ireland and Scotland from Group B, had all progressed to the semi finals.[6][7][8][9] The other four teams, Netherlands, Thailand, Uganda and United Arab Emirates all progressed to the semi-final playoff matches, to determine their final ranking placements.[10]

In the first semi final, Ireland beat Papua New Guinea by 27 runs, therefore advancing to the final of the tournament and qualifying for the 2018 ICC Women's World Twenty20 in the process.[11] In the second semi final, Bangladesh beat Scotland by 49 runs, to also qualify for the tournament final and the 2018 ICC Women's World Twenty20.[12] Bangladesh won the tournament, beating Ireland by 25 runs in the final.[13] Ireland's Clare Shillington was named the player of the tournament.[14][15]
