  1. Post update

    That's where we're going to leave it - England have won 12 in a row, taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match ODI series, and *probably* qualified for the next World Cup. Not a bad day's work at all, even if the rain threatened to prevent them winning more than West Indies did - take a look at Callum's match report.

    For the women, that's it until Thursday when they conclude the ODI series with a day-nighter at "Fortress Chelmsford" at 14:00 BST. Elsewhere, the Men's World Cup continues, as does the women's football World Cup and everything else.

    Thanks for your patience during the rain delays today - hope you've enjoyed the highlights, make sure you join us on Thursday. Bye for now.

    And we can't forget the skipper, picking up her first international wicket of the summer with the final ball of the game:

  3. Player of the match

    England seamer Anya Shrubsole, who hit 32 from 16 balls and took 2-12 from five overs: "I was disappointed with the last game from a personal point of view, so it was nice to smash a few and get some wickets. My batting's something I've worked very hard on, I've probably frustrated a few coaches down the years but coming in and having a swing is always fun."

    On what England could improve on: "In both games we've probably needed a set batter to go through the innings, but we've put in two good performances."

  4. Captain's view

    West Indies captain Stafanie Taylor: "I'm very pleased to see how the bowlers bowled today. It was good to revisit the videos that we had and for us to come out and bowl the way that we did."

    On leg-spinner Afy Fletcher: "I'm always impressed with Afy. She's special. Whenever we give her the ball she always delivers"

    On the batting tactics after the rain delay: "We lost quick wickets and we have another game to play. It was important to see what the bowlers were bowling and get some practice in ahead of the final ODI."

  5. Captain's view

    England captain Heather Knight: "We lost a few wickets after the rain delay but we bat all the way down and it was great to see Anya Shrubsole biffing it, while young Sophie Ecclestone has a habit of hitting sixes. We were saved a bit by the lower order - Anya was outstanding with the ball and we were really pleased for Marshy [reaching 100 caps]."

    Another England stat we didn't mention just now - they have now won 12 games in a row in all formats.

    Stand by for the presentation.

  7. Post update

    Let's just take you through those West Indian wickets - or at least the first five.

    (As their feeble batting approach since the rain delay doesn't really deserve any in-play highlights...)

    The England players are over to meet the long-suffering young fans who've sat through two rain delays today, for some autographs and selfies. Nice touch.

    England haven't had to use Plan B once yet in the field in this series. They've been clinical, but haven't been put under any pressure.

    (and qualify for 2021 World Cup - PROBABLY!)

  11. WICKET

    Campbelle b Knight 29 (WI 87-6)

    But the England skipper has the last laugh. Campbelle, dancing down the wicket to the last ball in a death-or-glory moment more suited to a benefit match, is bowled as Heather Knight picks up a wicket.

    Fittingly, in her 100th ODI, England let Laura Marsh lead them off.

  12. WI 87-5

    Captain Heather Knight will spin down the last over. West Indies pick up some ones and twos, some tumbling on the ropes by Amy Jones and Danni Wyatt attempts to cut off a boundary (though the third umpire rules that Wyatt was touching the rope when she pulled the ball back).

    With two balls of the game left, Campbelle whacks Knight over her head for four. Why didn't they do this 10 overs ago?

  13. WI 75-5

    With Ecclestone and Marsh bowled out, England turn back to the right-arm seam of Kate Cross, who already has two wickets today.

    After a couple of singles, Kyshona Knight takes the safety-first approach - so Kate Cross finishes with a very creditable analysis of 4-1-4-2.

    Start the super sopper!

    Ex-England batter on BBC Test Match Special

    We know how much of a dangerous team West Indies can be, but they've not shown that at all. As a general spectator, it's frustrating to see them lose their way, after they've bowled and fielded a lot better today.

  15. WI 73-5

    Campbelle 19, Kyshona Knight 10

    West Indies are taking slightly more liberties with Heather Knight's off-spin than with Laura Marsh's, but it's like a training session for England fielders as they're asked to occasionally cut off the odd single.

    Let's be positive - safe to say, England are going to win, and have all-but-certainly qualified for the 2021 World Cup.

  16. Post update

    There haven't been many highlights since the rain, but here's a boundary from Shemaine Campbelle.

  17. WI 69-5

    Last over for Marsh - she starts with a dot ball which officially means West Indies need snookers.

    The game has literally gone for the Caribbean side - picking up the occasional single.

  18. WI 65-5

    Target 209 (28 overs)

    It is indeed Heather Knight to send down some off-spin - but when Shemaine Campbelle shows some intent, hammering a four wide of the sliding Danni Wyatt on the mid-wicket boundary, it's frankly too little, too late.

    A couple more singles are added, but if anyone's still counting, the required rate is now 35.75. They literally need to hit every one of the last 24 balls for six to win this.

    If I was trying to explain to someone who'd never seen cricket, what West Indies are doing here... what would you say?

    Here's Laura Marsh's wicket on her 100th appearance.
