England women out played West Indies again slumped to a 47-run and a 2-0 lead in the five-match series Wednesday, September 24, 2020, Twenty20 International at Incora Country Ground in Derby.
Chasing 152 in the second T20 International amid frigid temperatures, which dipped below 12 degrees Celsius, the Caribbean side got a top score of 38 from the in-form Deandra Dottin and 28 from Taylor, but lost momentum once the pair fell, and finished on 104 for eight off their 20 overs.
Batting first yesterday, hosts England were restricted to 151-8 with none of their batters reaching 30.
Just past halfway into their run chase, the Windies harboured strong hopes of levelling the series, but from a promising position of 72-1, they could only muster 104-8.
Agonisingly for West Indies, only Deandra Dottin (38) and Stafanie Taylor (28) reached double figures. On Monday it was a similar case — Dottin’s 69 the only score past 10.
England’s Sarah Glenn, who won the player of the match award after pivotal contributions with bat and ball, argued that the match was tougher than the victory margin suggests.
The third match of the series is scheduled for Saturday, September 26, 2020 before the fourth and fifth contests on September 28 and 30, respectively.
