In Jon Lewis’ debut series as head coach, England swept away West Indies in three ODIs. Nat Sciver again shone.
Sciver, making her international return in the Caribbean following a mental health hiatus at the end of the English summer, hammered 85 off 69 balls and then claimed two wickets to stymie a weak host response.
She was the only player to hit fifty on either side, and England was bowled out in 43.3 overs for 256, which was enough as West Indies battled in the run-chase to be bowled out for 105 and lost by 151 runs.
Sophie Ecclestone took three wickets in nine overs, including six maidens. Kate Cross, Freya Davies, Charlie Dean, and Alice Davidson-Richards—who replaced Heather Knight—also took wickets.
Knight, recovering from a hip ailment, was rested, as was Lauren Bell, who had career-best numbers.
West Indies started strongly, with Hayley Matthews (28) leading her team to 40 in the powerplay, but after Ecclestone caught her at slip, the innings collapsed.
Only twin sisters Kycia Knight (11) and Kyshona Knight (13) reached double figures after that, and the innings had only eight fours—fewer than Sciver hit on her alone.
Danni Wyatt (35), who joined Sciver when England were 84 for 4, and stand-in captain Amy Jones (32*), who has played brilliantly from No.7 and has been dismissed just once, supported her.
Emma Lamb (29) and Tammy Beaumont (26) started but failed again. On her 100th ODI, Shakera Selman took Beaumont, Lamb, and left-arm spinner Kaysia Schultz.
England’s Katherine Brunt and Lauren Winfield-Hill return for five T20Is before the T20 World Cup.
