England women won all the games of their five-match series against the women team of the West Indies.
Due to heavy rains, the last game played between England and West Indies’ women teams was a five-over game. Like the four games that were played, the last game had also been dominated by the English team. Thus completing a clean sweep of the entire series.
After the said game had been reduced, the English team had chosen to bowl first. With the Caribbean women batting first, they were able to score 11 runs in the opening over as Deandra Dottin scored a four and a six off of Freya Davies.
England also managed to give the West Indies a hard time as batters Katherine Brunt and Sophie Ecclestone each picked a wicket. With Stafanie Taylor’s back-to-back boundaries and a stunning performance from Natasha McLean, the West Indies were off to chase 42.
On the West Indies’ turn to bowl, England changed their batting order and had proved to be ineffective as Heather Knight and Amy Ellen Jones were easily dismissed in the first over. Tammy Beaumont then came out and went on to score back-to-back boundaries off of Shakera Selman.
The West Indies then inflicted a run-out and Taylor has managed to pull off a stunner, thus reducing the hosts to 25 for 5 in the third over. After then, England needed seven runs off the final over.
At the end of the game, Selman bowled two no-balls and eventually gave the match away to England. Despite not having scored any double-digits, England still won the first five-over match, thus having swept all the victories in their five-match T20I series.
