West Indies Women 140-6 (Taylor 40) beat
England Women 129-6 (Quintyne 5-16) by 11 runs
Women's T20 International, tri-series, Bridgetown

West Indies Women beat England Women by 11 runs to make it a perfect two wins out of two in the Twenty20 International tri-series in Bridgetown.

West Indies batted first and made 140 for six as Stafanie Taylor top scored from the top of the order with 40.

Despite Danielle Hazell taking three for 19, the West Indies had put enough runs on the board after they were asked to bat first by England.

Charlotte Edwards made 39 to top score for England, just as she had in the opening game, but this time she was unable to set up a victory.

Leg-spinner Shaquana Quintyne returned figures of five for 16 to limit England to 129 for six in reply.

Quintyne's five-wicket haul is just the ninth in the history of Women's Twenty20 International cricket and is the eighth best return of all time, equalling India's Priyanka Roy.

She is the second West Indian, after Anisa Mohammed (who has achieved the feat twice) to take five wickets in a match and just the second player, after Amy Satterthwaite, to do so against England.

With one round of the tri-series matches now complete, West Indies lead the way with two wins from two, England have one and New Zealand are yet to get off the mark.

West Indies take on New Zealand on Sunday 21st October.
