England defeated West Indies by 28 runs in the second T20I at Old Trafford on Monday (September 10).

The home side put in another dominant performance on the back of an eight-wicket victory in the first of the five-match series at the weekend.

Sarah Taylor earned the player-of-the-match for a fine all-round performance with 53 from 37 balls to go with two stumpings in the West Indies reply.

England’s impressive display was topped off by outstanding catches from Anya Shrubsole and Susie Rowe as they made it 19 T20Is without defeat.

Arran Brindle (42 not out from 41 balls) helped Taylor add 78 for the third wicket to take England to 150-3 after being put into bat.

Danielle Wyatt (2-25), Laura Marsh (2-17) and Brindle (2-12) all claimed two wickets for England but West Indies put up a better effort with the bat than in the first match, finishing on 122-6.

West Indies skipper Merissa Aguilleira was the pick of the batsmen for the visitors but there were also useful contributions from Tremayne Smartt (25), Britney Cooper (20) and Shemaine Campbelle (13 not out from six balls).

England go to Northampton on Thursday looking to clinch the series with two matches remaining.
