5.20pm The vivacious celebrations are back in the West Indies camp. Stafanie Taylor rallies her girls for a huddle mid-pitch. There's plenty of cheer. All of them are kicked. This has been a superb bowling performance to go along with a decent batting effort, but it has come a little late in the context of the tournament, well after they were knocked out. Sri Lanka have a lot of soul-searching to do with the bat. The gulf between the top three and the rest, in terms of hitting, is there for everyone to see. Sri Lanka needed the madness of one batsman to get them close after Siriwardene, Atapattu and Weerakkody all chipped in with handy knocks, but that wasn't to be on the face of some terrific spin bowling from West Indies.

Stafanie Taylor: Elated! To see Anisa Mohammed come to the party was amazing. Everyone was teasing me, they said we may as well put on the pads when we come to the game since I've been losing the toss. The coach said it wasn't a bad thing to do.

Anisa Mohammed is the Player of the match for her three-wicket haul.

Fletcher to Ranaweera, OUT

that's the end of that. First win of the competition for West Indies. This one was nicely tossed up outside off, it drifted in a long way to sneak through the big gap between bat and pad as she played outside the line. Five losses in five for Sri Lanka

Fletcher to Prabodhani, OUT

deceived in flight. Looked to swing this across the line over long-on but wasn't to the pitch of the ball, swung too early and so missed it completely. Aguilleira didn't look like missing that stumping. Rode the bounce, collected it cleanly and whipped the bails off in a jiffy
