  1. Post update

    Thanks for your company tonight. Remember to join us for the third match of the series on Saturday, which will be live right across the BBC.

  2. Post update

    Player of the match Sarah Glenn, who hit 26 and took 2-24, on Sky Sports: "It was a really good test for us today. West Indies put us under the pump, but we kept trying to throw the first punch when batting.

    "If we lose a few wickets you can fall into the habit of just looking for singles but we did really well to stay aggressive at the end.

    "It's taken me a while to bowl my variations in a game, because it's a bit scary when they're doing well but I've now got more confidence.

    "I want to work on being able to perform consistently."

  3. Post update

    England captain Heather Knight, speaking to Sky Sports: "I'm really pleased, we got off to a great start with the bat. There was a lull in the middle but the back end was really strong, it's something we wanted to improve on from the other day and it was great to see Sarah Glenn get her top score.

    "It was a bit slower today and we didn't adapt to the way West Indies bowled. They had clear plans today and executed them better than the first match. We know we bat deep and we did it the end. That was a half-decent score on that wicket.

    "We've got a day off in the bubble tomorrow - not too interesting - but then a day of practice and we want to win the series on Saturday."

  4. Post update

    West Indies captain Stafanie Taylor, speaking to Sky Sports: "We got off to a decent start, then they came back. We were on target for restricting them under 145, 135, which would've been good.

    "The batters didn't come to the party and we need to improve in that area. It just can't be one player.

    "We discussed between where we wanted to be between seven and 15 overs but we fell down in that area, in terms of both singles and boundaries."

    The takeaway from this game? The wicketkeeping. Don't drag that back foot...

    Each batter has to work out how they are going to score - is it ones and twos or is it boundaries?

    West Indies need to work out what each player's role is when they bat. Scoring only 104 anywhere in the world in a T20 is not good enough.

    A comprehensive victory for England once again. They are 2-0 up in the five-match series and it's a very long way back for West Indies.

  11. England win by 47 runs

    WI 104-8

    England go 2-0 up in the series.

    In the end, it's comprehensive, but West Indies had their moments. At the moment, England look like the team who have had the benefit of greater preparation.

  12. WI 100-8

    Target 152

    One to go. Sophie Ecclestone to bowl it.

    Katherine Brunt might be a bit frustrated to only get three overs tonight. She's been very economical yet again.

  14. WI 100-8

    Target 152

    A superb performance by Katherine Brunt tonight. She ends with 1-8 from her three overs. Miserly.

    This game has definitely beat the record for the most umpire reviews.

  16. WICKET

    Alleyne lbw Ecclestone 5 (WI 96-8)

    Never in doubt. Sophie Ecclestone has her second. There are 12 balls to go. Will West Indies bat them all?

    Third umpire Sue Redfern will be sending TMS an invoice at the end of this. She's been a big contributor to our broadcast.

  18. West Indies review

    WI 96-8

    Might as well, though I'm pretty sure Aaliyah Alleyne is plumb here.

    I hope third umpire Sue Redfern is being paid by the review...

  19. Get Involved



    Herb: Amy Jones is a seriously impressive keeper. Amazingly economical movements and always in balance.

  20. WI 95-7

    Target 152

    West Indies have lost six wickets for 19 runs in 33 balls. Shakera Selman arrives.
