Women's T20 International tri-series, Barbados

West Indies Women beat England Women by eight wickets to claim victory in the Twenty20 International tri-series in Barbados.

A powerful performance from the home side saw them comfortably overcome England's score of 115 for five.

England batted first and made a competitive score thanks to Natalie Sciver (36) and Sarah Taylor (28) but the West Indies still proved to be too strong.

Stafanie Taylor has enjoyed a wonderful run of form throughout the series and she struck 51 not out while Deandra Dottin made an unbeaten 46.

The West Indies reached their target with 19 balls to spare, the pair putting on an unbroken stand of 78 for the third wicket to see their side home.

The two sides now meet in a series of three One-Day Internationals in Trinidad.
