England Women 154 for 3 (Greenway 61, Taylor 43) beat West Indies Women 70 for 8 (Hazell 4-12) by 84 runs
England Women once again proved a class apart as they destroyed West Indies by 84 runs to move one step closer to a series whitewash. Victory in the final match at Arundel will seal the 5-0 win.
The win at Hove came courtesy of a stranglehold in the field as only Stefanie Taylor got into double figures. She made 40 from 56 balls opening the batting but that was the only innings that remotely took the attack to the England bowlers. Danni Hazel picked up four wickets, leading England's spin assault that gave away nothing as 14 overs of slow bowling were sent down.
By contrast England found little trouble scoring and racked up nearly an eight-per-over target. Lydia Greenway led the way with 61 in 45 balls with seven fours, sharing a partnership of 98 with Sarah Taylor, whose own contribution was 43 in 36 balls.
"It's been another great team performance today," Greenway said. "Charlotte and Laura got us off to a good start and everyone coming in knew what they had to do. I was really pleased to contribute and to play positively today, it was good to get out there and get some runs under my belt. I always enjoy batting with Sarah Taylor and today we rotated the strike well.
"We were comfortable with the target we set and our bowlers once again put in an excellent performance, all executing their plans to restrict West Indies."
