West Indies Women avoided a whitewash against England but took their full 20 overs to chase down 140 at Arundel. England had been a class apart in the opening four matches of the series but this victory sees West Indies travel to the World T20 with confidence.

Deandra Dottin was the star with the bat for West Indies, clearing the ropes five times in a brutal innings of 62 from just 34 balls. But she was bowled with 17 still required from 20 balls. A tight over and another wicket from Danni Wyatt saw 11 needed from 12 balls and six from the final over. Juliana Nero kept her cool to guide West Indies over the line.

England tinkered with their batting order with Tammy Beaumont and Wyatt opening the batting. But again it was Sarah Taylor at No. 3 that led the innings with 34 from 30 balls. Katherine Brunt also made a valuable contribution, top scoring with 35 but England's 139 for 7 proved not enough as they lost their first fixture in 21 matches.

"We were just undone by an unbelievable innings by Deandra Dottin, credit to her for a match winning performance," England's captain, Charlotte Edwards, conceded. "But we'll be taking a huge amount of positives from the series; there have been key contributions from a lot of our players over the five matches which is always good with World Cups ahead. We're going to Sri Lanka with confidence and are really looking forward to the next few weeks."
