England Women 103-4 (Wyatt 40) beat
West Indies Women 101 by 6 wickets
Women's World Cup Group A, Mumbai

England Women qualified for the Super Sixes stage of the ICC Women's World Cup 2013 by convincingly beating the West Indies Women by six wickets in Mumbai.

The West Indies were bowled out for 101 as Anya Shrubsole took a four-wicket haul and England reached their target in 35 overs.

The West Indies still qualified for the second stage of the competition after Sri Lanka beat India in the final group game.

England's new ball attack of Katherine Brunt (2-10) and Shrubsole (4-21) did the trick for them today, reducing West Indies to 31 for six, including the wickets of in-form players Merissa Aguilleira for four and Deandra Dottin for the same score.

Kycia Knight, Stafanie Taylor and Juliana Nero all failed to score as only Kyshona Knight (33 in 86 balls) and Shanel Daley (30 not out in 76) mustered any significant resistance.

Arran Brindle finished things off with figures of three for nought by dismissing Kyshona Knight, Shaquana Quintyne (0) and Tremayne Smartt (0).

Subrina Munroe became the sixth West Indian to fail to score when she was trapped in front by Shrubsole.

England's openers Danielle Wyatt and Brindle then put on 66 together, Brindle making 14 before falling to Dottin, who immediately struck again to trap Sarah Taylor in front. She was unable to pick up a hat-trick but did dismiss Lydia Greenway for two, returning figures of three for 20 and reducing England to 79 for four, all four wickets falling for just 13 runs.

Wyatt hit six fours in 80 balls before she was trapped in front by Munroe before Heather Knight, unbeaten on 18, and Jenny Gunn, not out on four, guided England hmoe with 15 overs to spare.

The only blemish on a fine day for England was an injury to Katherine Brunt, after she hurt her ankle in the process of celebrating a wicket.
