Scorecard
England marched into the final and further cemented themselves as favourites with a strong win against West Indies at Drummoyne Oval on Tuesday. It will be England's first appearance in a final since their victorious home campaign in 1993.
The gulf in experience between the two sides told with West Indies surrendering for 90 in reply to England's 236. Sarah Taylor returned to form, top-scoring with 78 in an opening stand of 134 with Caroline Atkins. Claire Taylor then boosted England to an unassailable total with a quickfire 65 from 56 balls after they lost 4 wickets for 11. She gave the innings some late impetus, adding 26 runs in 18 balls with captain Charlotte Edwards, who batted down the order to give the others a chance to get some runs.
West Indies' batsmen had no answer to England's penetrative bowlers who have now bowled out the opposition in both Super Six contests. England's fielders backed up the bowlers with razor-sharp fielding.
What would worry England is the implosion of their middle- and lower- order batsmen - after Sarah Taylor was the first wicket to fall in the 32nd over. The next seven wickets added a mere 91 to the total. West Indies used nine bowlers to try and stem the flow of runs with medium-pacer Shanel Daley proving the most successful with a career-best 3 for 31.
