England Women 131 for 8 (Dunkley 35, Brunt 24*, Fraser 3-20, Grimmond 3-33) beat West Indies Women 82 (Matthews 23, Bell 4-12, Ecclestone 2-13, Dean 2-16) by 49 runs
For the fourth T20I in a row, West Indies were let down by their batting. And for a third straight game, they faltered while chasing. It means England lead the series 4-0 with one more game remaining on Sunday.
The West Indies bowlers set the game up nicely, restricting England to 131 for 8. It was a particularly impressive effort because England were primed for 160 or thereabouts at the halfway mark. But from 73 for 2, they lost three wickets for no runs in the space of four deliveries in the 11th over to allow West Indies a foot in the door.
Dunkley’s 35 was the top score for England, while Brunt made an unbeaten 20-ball 24 at No. 8. Nat Sciver and Jones couldn’t capitalise on starts, getting dismissed for 15 and 21 respectively, while Dean, batting at No. 9, made 20 before being run out off the last ball of the innings.
Bell and Dean ended the match joint-top of the series wicket charts, with nine each.
