  1. Post update

    Well, Stephan Shemilt's developing match report is already up for your perusal - so we're going to wrap things up on the live text.

    The next game takes place on Sunday - same Bat-time (15:30 BST), same Bat-channel (uninterrupted here on the BBC Sport website, with some of the game also on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra). Thanks for your company today, hope you can join us next time.

  2. ICC Women's Championship table

    And with one bound, England move to second place in the ICC Women's Championship table:

    1. Australia (Q) - P18, Pts 30
    2. England - P16, Pts 21
    3. W Indies - P16, Pts 20
    4. New Zealand - P18, Pts 20
    5. S Africa - P18, Pts 17
    6. India - P15, Pts 13
    7. Pakistan - P15, Pts 8
    8. Sri Lanka - P18, Pts 5

    Should England win the two remaining games in this series, they will book their place at next summer's World Cup (as Australia have already done). Should they fail to do so, they have three away games against bottom side Sri Lanka next month.

  3. Captain's view

    It's back! Well done that MC.

    Windies captain Stafanie Taylor: "I didn't think we bowled how he would want to, we didn't apply ourselves batting and get the partnerships we wanted. I'm hoping we will perform a lot better on Sunday - we're better fielders than that, we dropped some crucial catches, hence the score we had to chase."

  4. Post update

    Unfortunately it looks like the Sabina Park MC's microphone broke down just before he could talk to Windies captain Stafanie Taylor...

  5. Player of the match

    England opener Lauren Winfield: "We knew the conditions would be slightly easier than Trelawny, but it was important for us to stay in. In ODI cricket, we know partnerships are key to putting big scores on the board, and it's about backing those game plans we made back home."

  6. Captain's view

    England captain Heather Knight: "It was an all-round team performance, and that partnership between Lauren and Nat was key for us. Our batters have learnt a lot from the last two games, hopefully we can get another win on the board now.

    "The first two games were both very close, either side could be 2-0 up or 2-0 down coming into this game. It's great to have support from friends and family in the crowd - it's Natalie's mum's barmy army!"

  7. Bowling figures

    Here's the England bowling. Makes good reading - with Jenny Gunn particularly economical.

  8. Post update

    It will all look quite straightforward on paper - but England started well today when Heather Knight won the toss, and they never really allowed West Indies to grasp the advantage.

    Lauren Winfield (79) and Natalie Sciver (58) were the prime movers as England racked up an impressive-looking 220 all out, even if they did lose their last six wickets for 35 runs in the last eight overs.

    Katherine Brunt then struck early, and West Indies were never allowed to settle, only four batters reaching double figures as the wickets were all shared around.

    Stafanie Taylor will be disappointed she didn't contribute, especially on her home ground, but West Indies will have to dust themselves down as they've got two big games to come here.

  10. WICKET - England win by 112 runs

    Mohammed c Elwiss b Marsh (WI 108 all out)

    I said Mohammed could only bat two ways - she switches to "slog at all costs" mode, launches Marsh high into the air and Elwiss runs back at long-off to take the catch.

    A thumping victory - England win by 112 runs, and take two ICC Women's Championship points. They're two wins away from qualifying for their own World Cup.

  11. WI 107-9 (target 221)

    Can Elwiss bring matters to a conclusion? The tall Connell plays forward and gets an inside edge to fine leg so they run a single. Hey, when you bat number 11 (and I've done that most of my life), you take your runs wherever they come. Elwiss then sends down a wide - while Anisa Mohammed continues her binary style of batting - watchful in defence, or trying to hit the cover off it. She survives for now.

  12. Drinks break

    I'm not making this up. England need one wicket to win, the number 11 (the bare-headed Shamilia Connell) is at the crease - so they're having a drinks break!

    Brilliant time for Georgia Elwiss to come on, they have got a lot of runs to play with so why not give Georgia a bowl?

    England have bowled very well.

  14. WICKET

    King lbw b Elwiss 8 (WI 105-9)

    Now here's a rarity - right-arm seamer Georgia Elwiss is going to have a bowl. And it pays immediate dividends as she slants an inswinger into left-hander Stacy-Ann King's pads and the finger of doom is raised.

    Even though Elwiss came into the England side as a bowler, she's worked her way up to bat at three and bowls less and less - before today she's only bowled 10 overs in ODIs since 2013...

    Where has Anisa Mohammed been? This is incredibly entertaining. 

  16. WI 105-8

    At least West Indies have made it into three figures - as the carefree Mohammed whacks Marsh back over her head for a second-bounce four. Next up, she launches one over mid-off but it doesn't have the power and they can only run two. Still, the crowd seem to be enjoying it.

    For those still keeping track, the Windies need 116 from 96 balls. As if...

  17. Post update

    Lydia Greenway

    They are just giving it a go now, in a situation with just two wickets left. They may as well now. 

  18. CLOSE!

    WI 99-8 (target 221)

    Mohammed tickles Hartley for a single to fine leg, King rotates the strike, then Mohammed launches one high into the sky over cow corner... but it just bounced in front of the diving Katherine Brunt running in from deep mid-wicket. Mohammed is a woman on a mission here - a mission to finish the match, it seems, as she sets off for a perilous single, it would have been out if the throw had hit... but it misses.

  19. WI 94-8

    Marsh 1-24 from eight overs

    Vice-captain Anisa Mohammed is West Indies' number 10 - surely it's all over bar the shouting. Knight, with a wicket and two catches to her name, removes herself from the attack and turns back to fellow off-spinner Laura Marsh. And there's no way back for the Windies, seemingly, as the tall King plays out a maiden over.
