West Indies Women were outplayed by England as they lost the second One-Day International (ODI) by 121 runs under the Duckworth Lewis system at Worcester, England on Sunday.

England had won the first ODI by a record 208 runs at Leicester a few days before. Captain Heather Jones hit 94 and Amy Jones 91 in a 164-run partnership as England posted 318-9.

West Indies required 210 under the Duckworth Lewis but made 110 for 9 in the rain-affected match.

In the second of the three-match series, England after winning the toss, scored 233 for seven after rain reduced the match to 41 over contest.

The Windies Women never threatened after being reduced to 42 for five early on, before another shower placed the match further out of their grasp.

Set a new target of 208 in 20 overs, the regional team finished on 87 for 6.

The win also earned England two points in the ICC’s Women’s Championship and took them to the verge of qualification for 2021 World Cup in New Zealand.

The final match is carded for June 13.
