Ireland eased past the United States by nine wickets to secure their first win of the Women's T20 World Cup Qualifier in Abu Dhabi.

Ireland had begun their bid to qualify for next year's World Cup with a 14-run defeat by Bangladesh on Sunday.

The top two from the eight-team Qualifier will progress to the competition in South Africa.

The Irish will face Scotland in Abu Dhabi in their final Group A game tomorrow with the winner of that match guaranteed a semi-final place, regardless of the Bangladesh-USA result on the same day, while the loser will be eliminated.
