England Women and West Indies Women square off in the 5th T20I of the T20 series in Derby.
England Women enter in the final T20I of the series to take the clean sweep over West Indies at Derby. The hosts have been pretty dominating and defeated Windies clinically in the first four games. In all games, West Indies got a tough task of chasing but their batting let them down and they didn’t finish any game on a positive note. In the previous game, England finished 166, riding on Amy Jones’ 55 and Heather Knight’s 42.
For England, only Wyatt didn’t get enough runs as the all other players have at least one good innings in the series. In the chase, Dottin failed this time and got out on just 4. West Indies were not in winning frame as they only played their full 20-overs and lost by 44 runs. Chedan Nation contributed 25-balls 30 and it was the top score for Windies. In final T20I, West Indies aim to conclude the England tour on a high note.
County Ground, Derby offers a good amount of runs and it’s a decent batting-friendly wicket. Chasing is a tough task and any score above 150 is a winning total. Pacers can get extra help from the pitch.
